#Elevate Christmas—Invite Students to Share

The Christmas season is a wonderful time to deepen our commitment to the Savior. Teachers, staff, and students have the opportunity to share their impressions and experiences with those we know, care about, and love.


Please invite students to share what they are doing to #elevate Christmas this year. They can find shareable images of Christ’s birth connected to Old Testament scriptures on the Seminary and Institute Facebook pages (we have also attached some images). The rest of the memes and other social media resources for #ASaviorIsBorn are located at Christmas.mormon.org.


You and your students can share Christmas #elevate experiences on social media as follows:


1. Answer the following question on any social media platform: “What does Christmas mean to me?

2. Post by December 18th at 5:00 p.m. (use #elevate so we can find your posts).


Let’s continue to #elevate our experience in seminary and institute!
