All members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, ages 12 and older, are encouraged to participate in Sunday School classes, which are held each week as part of the regular weekly worship services. Those of other faiths are also invited to attend. The purpose of Sunday School is to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and strengthen individuals and families through teaching, learning, and friendship.

Classes for the youth are divided by age. Children between the ages of 18 months to 12 years attend Primary. A separate class is held for adults. Volunteer teachers who are assigned by the local congregational leader (bishop or branch president) follow curriculum that focuses on a different volume of scripture each year, rotating between courses on the Old TestamentNew TestamentBook of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants and Church History.
