Official policies and announcements

The Friend is a valuable Church publication and families should be encouraged to have it and use it in their homes and in Church callings. Stories and activities in the Friend that are appropriate for Primary may be used to enrich Primary lessons and sharing time. However, bishoprics and Primary leaders should not assign members to promote the Friend in Primary. Children should be able to attend Primary without feeling pressure to purchase or read the magazine. They should not be involved in contests or rewards that can cause hurt feelings and thus are not appropriate in Church meetings. (See Bulletin 1992-1.)
