LDS Priesthood Preview Ideas and Printables

I thought I would post some of the ideas and printable handouts we have used in the past for our Priesthood Preview.  Really, it is the bishopric and Young Men who put the Priesthood Preview on. The Primary Presidency was their to support and help out a little :)

The important thing is that the Primary Presidency, Young Men Presidency and Bishopric coordinate to decide how involved the Primary Presidency will be. When I was in, as a Primary Presidency we took care of printing the program, Printing invitations, providing a pianist and chorister, and making the refreshments.  This is just an example.

Here is what Handbook 2 says about Priesthood Preview:

Priesthood Preview

A meeting called Priesthood Preview is held each year for 11-year-old boys and their parents. The purpose of this meeting is to help boys understand the priesthood and strengthen their commitment to prepare to receive it. Possible topics for the meeting include priesthood purposes, responsibilities, and blessings (for some ideas, see Faith in God for Boys, pages 12–13).

A member of the bishopric conducts the Priesthood Preview, and at least one member of the Primary presidency attends. Other leaders, including members of the deacons quorum presidency and Young Men presidency, may also attend.

If a ward has very few 11-year-old boys, the meeting may be held, under the direction of the stake presidency, with other wards or with the entire stake. According to local needs, it may be held on a Sunday evening, as part of a deacons quorum meeting on Sunday, or at another time."

As for the program here is the layout that I would give the Young Men President.  He would then decide on those who he would like to participate in the program.
