23 Jesus Christ sent his disciples to get some bread and wine. He told the Nephites to sit on the ground.
24 When the disciples returned, the Savior broke the bread into pieces and blessed it. He gave some to his disciples and had them give some to the people.
25 Jesus said that people who take the sacrament promise to always remember him and his sacrifice. They then receive his Spirit.
26 Jesus Christ blessed the wine and gave some to his disciples. The disciples gave some wine to the people.
27 Jesus said those who take the sacrament promise to keep his commandments.
28 Jesus again told his disciples that everyone who takes the sacrament and always remembers him will have his Spirit.

30 He told them to pray always and to pray as they had seen him pray.
31 The Savior told all the Nephites to pray to Heavenly Father in his name. He also commanded them to pray with their families.
32 He said the people should meet together often. They should welcome others to their meetings, pray for them, and be good examples to them.
33 The Savior gave his disciples the power to give the Holy Ghost. Then a cloud covered the people so that only the disciples saw Jesus Christ go up to heaven
34 After everyone had taken the sacrament, Jesus Christ explained its purpose as he had done for his Apostles in Jerusalem.
35 Let’s read 3 Nephi 18:77 And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.
36 How do you think the Nephites felt about Jesus Christ when they took the sacrament?
37 What occurs during the sacrament service? Let’s talk about some of the following ideas:
38 1. We usually sing a sacrament hymn. 2. Priesthood holders (usually priests) break the bread.This is a sacrament tray for the bread.
39 3. A priesthood holder (usually a priest) kneels and says the sacrament prayer on the bread. (You might want to read the words of the sacrament prayers found in Moroni 4 and 5 and in Doctrine and Covenants 20:77, 79.)
40 5. A priesthood holder (usually a priest) kneels and says the sacrament prayer on the water. (Show a sacrament tray for the water.)6. Priesthood holders (usually the deacons) pass the water.
