2016 LDS Primary Sacrament Meeting Program Outline, Tips and Printables


It is that time of year again! The time when the primary presidency frantically puts together a program, the chorister practices the sames songs over and over with the kids, and everyone wonders how it will ever be pulled off. I have a little SECRET!  When those primary kids get up there in front of their parents and bear their testimonies through music and song, it will be pulled off! The Spirit will be felt :) 

Last year, I shared some tips for this crazy, exciting time of year! I share a condensed version here, but to see the full description click this link: 2015 Primary Sacrament Meeting Program Ideas, free printable program cover: I Know My Savior Lives


Tips and Tricks to Pulling off a Primary Sacrament Meeting Program:

Tip 1: The key thing to remember is that it is the "Primary Children's" program, not the Primary Presidency's program. 

Tip 2: Let the children participate in helping to write their own parts.

Tip 3: Coordinate with the Primary Chorister when writing the program. MUSIC brings the Spirit into the program!! Work together in preparing the primary children.

Tip 4: More About Music: When preparing make it fun!

Tip 5: Hand the parts to the parents and FOLLOW-up!


Tip 6: Make a seating chart, print it our for all adult leaders.

Tip 7: Organization and Flow!! I have found inviting the primary teachers to lead their class up and participate by reading a scripture, helps in the flow of the program.

Tip 8: Practice, but don't over practice.

Tip 9: Do not get discouraged!

Bonus Tips: Make a copy of the program for each adult leader. This will help them to know when to help kids go up. It is also important for the teachers to know the songs too!! Their example to the kids is so important, they can help get the kids singing.

Here are some additional helps for the program:

Primary Sacrament Meeting Program Invitation

** New because of Request** If you want to send out an invite for your Primary Program, here is an editable download. Click the download button and download the printable to your computer and then you can open it up in photo editing software like Paint.net or PicMonkey and input your Ward's name, date, place and time. This would especially be fun to give non-member friends and also grandmas and grandpas you'd like to come. 4 x 6 size so can easily be printed at your favorite photo center.




Ideas of what to list inside of the program:
   
We liked to list each topic, scripture, kids in order of participation as well as the songs. All in order.

    1. debbd, check your trash and spam and make sure it is not there. If you still don't see it, send me your email address and I can see if I can see it. If I can't you'll need to sign up again. It usually, sends the email out right after you've subscribed. Thanks for your patience :)

  5. I have been desperately trying to open this download of the primary program outline for days now.
    But it came through as a zip file. I have no way to open it. Please help. Can you send it to me without it being in a zip drive. This is my first year in primary and having a hard time with this program. My email is lori.williams2012@yahoo.com . I have even tried to sign up again and same thing.

    1. That is so weird Lori, I am sorry for the issue! It shouldn't be coming over as a zip. You should receive a welcome email with a link. The link is an open file that downloads directly to your computer. From your computer you should be able to open it up into a program you have on your computer, mine opens up into Wordpad. The best way though, is to sign into google drive, go to "My Drive" at the top of the page, then upload file and upload the file that downloaded to your computer. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience! I am also going to see if I can just directly send it to you. Best wishes in you program!!
