Before teaching a lesson, consider giving a simple overview of what you are going to teach. Help people see that it will have personal relevance for them. Many of the members you teach have been preparing during the week for your class. As you share spiritual experiences together in the first meeting, they will recognize you as servants of the Lord.
The first few moments with class are very important. The members must learn to trust you. Begin in a warm, respectful, genuine manner. Ask a few simple questions For example, ask, ´´How was your week? ´´How are you today?
