" I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ" (doors)

Click Here to listen

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I woke up around 5 AM this morning and my mind immediately turned to my primary music. Every time I have thoughts about how to teach our April song of the month, "I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ." I have always turned towards more of a belonging, welcoming kind of feeling. With that came pictures in my head of how we belong to the church and "our door is always open" to everyone, So, I decided I would teach this song using the "open door" concept.

I have mentioned many times how my brain is usually way ahead of the rest of me. I get the ideas but they take some time to put together so it usually takes me awhile (Saturday night at midnight lol) to get everything completed. Since we don't have meetings again until April 12th, I figured mine won't be completed until the 11th, therefore, I put together a cute example poster for all of you to take a peek at if you are interested.

For starters you will need 2 posterboards. The top one should be white, but the background board can be any color you wish to use. You will then need pics to go along with the song. The ones I used are as follows:

I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
This pic of the church will be the center of your board and will either need to be drawn on or printed out in a bigger size to glue on your white posterboard. It is the focus of the whole song so the doors and other pics will be smaller and they will all be centered around the Church picture.

I know who I am
I know Gods plan
I'll follow him in Faith
I believe in the Savoir, Jesus Christ
I'll honor his name
I'll do what is right
I'll Follow his light
His Truth I will proclaim

For a file of the pics that I used. You can download and print them from the link if you want to use the same ones.


I will then glue these pics onto my background posterboard. I will cut doors in my white posterboard and center it around the pics that are glued onto my background posterboard. Here is a small example board I made today so I could post pics to give you an idea on how this is supposed to look when finished. Keep in mind I will be using full size posterboard and all the pics.

Each door will open to reveal the next part of the song


This is my idea for presenting this song. It may be a bit confusing. Please feel free to post any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. I will post more pictures as I am putting my final poster together. I am usually way behind so I apologize. I just wanted to be able to get the idea out there for those who may be way more organized than I am... Happy Easter to Everyone!!


I have finally finished my board and will be presenting this tomorrow. Here are the pics I promised 2 weeks ago:)
