 Sacrament Meeting Presentation by Jill Barth of Mercy Springs Ward, Los Banos, California - [pdf] [Word]
Date Submitted: October 3, 2010


 Sacrament Meeting Program by Suzie Hammond of Vista First Ward, Vista, California - [xls]
Date Submitted: September 27, 2010

Suzie writes, "I used a script template I downloaded from Sugardoodle a month or so ago and tweeked it to be our own (so, thank you to "J. Larsen in the Bloomington 2nd Ward... and  Mormon Share"), for this file.

Hope someone out there is able to benefit from our labors in our extensive Excel file of data (8 worksheets total). Even if they don't use the script, there is plenty more to choose from in all the sheets:

Sheet 1: Script (containing about 30 parts, 3 talks, and a handful of "Fill in the blanks" & lyrics to all the songs. This is great for Leaders to follow during the program!)

Sheet 2: Sacrament Program template, outside (front cover and back page with song lyrics)

Sheet 3: Sacrament Program template, inside (Primary Leaders and children's names, and song lyrics) <--- These programs are great to give to less active kids who don't know all the words to the songs. Just give them this program and they will feel confident while up in front of the congregation. They are small enough to be held discreetly.

Sheet 4: Letter to Parents about the part(s) for their children and important dates and notes

Sheet 5: Parts for the children (this is the script, but without any songs and the parts are 'spaced' apart for easy cutting into strips to attach to the Letter to parents page}

Sheet 6: Rehearsal Checklist --- Important dates and a checklist of 'to do' items before the Program (thank you to someone from Sugardoodle for the bee clipart)

Sheet 7: Printout of the medley, our special song in the program. We attached these words to the 'Letter to Parents' so the kids could practice it at home and have the mixture of the two songs in black and white.

Sheet 8: Comment Slips (we print these out PLUS the Program Template and stuff them into the regular Sacrament Program). The congregation fills them out and puts them in our Primary mailbox upon exiting the Chapel. Then, after classes are done in the second hour, we spend the third hour reading the slips to the children and singing fun songs. The children love it!"

 Primary Program Outline by Becky Doig, Magrath 5th Ward, Magrath, Alberta, Canada -[pdf] [Word]
Date submitted:  September 19, 2010

Becky writes, "This primary program follows the Sharing Time outline fairly closely, except that I have combined the themes for September and November. The program is narrated and themes introduced by one class and their teacher who are sitting apart from the others in a classroom setting. It is as if they are reviewing what they have learned this year in Sharing time. The teacher asks questions that draw out the topics of the year.

In addition, I like the presentation to reflect the children's own testimonies, experiences and understanding of the scriptures and gospel principles. For most of the principles in the outline, I have the child state the principle, then prepare and present a brief story, testimony, example, etc. which gives some detail to the principle. I have worried in the past that this would make the presentation too long, but my experience is that most children will do their part in one short paragraph. Younger children just recite a line, and the sunbeams don't even have a complete sentence.

We have about 50 children in our primary, but you may still find this helpful if your Primary is somewhat bigger or smaller.  Also, I have to give credit to others among you who have posted on this page. I have read all of your programs and may have used your ideas here and there."

Jennifer writes, "My Primary Program 2010 “I Know My Savior Lives” exists only by the creativity, inspiration and talents of many others that have already shared theirs on Sugardoodle.  Because of all of your programs, mine came to life.  Thanks to all of you for sharing your programs, I hope maybe this will help some others that are writing their programs for Primary."



 Sacrament Meeting Program for around 25 children by Megan Buhler - [pdf] [Word]
Date Submitted: September 14, 2010

Megan writes, "This is a very loose, unstructured format, but we did something similar last year and it worked really well! We have a small primary - about 25 children - and it's very transitory. We never know who will show up/move in/etc. So, basically, each of the classes was assigned a question and their teachers work with them to help answer it (and we work on it in sharing time) and then they stand up in sacrament meeting and say their part in their own words, teacher prompts if necessary. If a new child shows up that day, we prep them in Primary (we have sacrament meeting last) and they get to participate, too. Since we have so few children, we also have all of the teachers/presidency speak.  Our practice schedule is like this: we go through it once really far in advance (September 26!) during Primary and we go through it once the day before on a Saturday. Of course, we practice our songs and the individual classes practice their parts (we have suggested each teacher take a few minutes at the end of class every week to ask the children the question they will be answering so they are used to answering and so the teacher is familiar with their answers)."

    Thanks for posting this! I'll obviously have to modify it some for my ward, but it's SO helpful to have a jumping off point.

    Just out of curiosity, did you happen to time this? Seems like it would run long with all the music included?

  • Lisa

    I've created a medley that I think we'll do at the end of our program. It's using the song from the outline combined with As I Have Loved You.

    If anyone is interested in the arrangement, let me know and I can go over the arrangement.

    Not sure how to email individually so I'll post it here:
    Both songs are in the same key and beat which makes it super easy. Have 2 different groups of kids. I'll Label them Group A and Group B. Start with I know that my Savior Loves me. Group A sings first vs. Group B joins them at the chorus. On the last note "ME" (F note), go to Love one another and play the last line (starting with the F note on "IF";). Have kids hold out the F note for 2 measures. This line acts as a interlude. Group B sings As I have loved you. On last note (F again) play the whole measure then go to I know my Savior loves me and play the chord on "LY" in the chorus (faithfully, E flat/C) and continue as though the rest of the chorus is the interlude between the songs. Use the 2nd ending and have Group A and B both sing "I know that my Savior loves me". If the kids singing can do it, have them break into parts during the chorus and ending lines.When transitioning from Love on...

  • Tracy Price

    Thank you for all you talented Sisters out there. This is my first year in preparing a Primary Program and I thank you for your suggestions.

  • Lisa

    I would love a copy of the medley. Thanks to everyone that submitteda program outline. They are very helpful.

  • Jan Warnick

    I have a very small primary. Any ideas for the sacrament program for a branch.?? Thanks!

  • RCH

    Like Jan in #9, we've got a tiny little branch (a twig!) with ~15 kids in Primary (including nursery) on a good day. I've been Primary President for a grand total of 2 weeks now and am faced with writing the program to be performed in a MONTH. :-P

    I would love (seriously, LOVE) any help / ideas for such a small Primary!

  • Miriam Alvarado

    I would like to know if someone has a primary program script in spanish. thank you.

    If you need to fill more time, you could add songs that follow the theme. You could have the children sing them in smaller groups so that not all the children have as much to learn and they get to take turns in the program. If they don't already know the songs or have time to learn them before the program, maybe you could ask some of the youth in the ward to participate, or you can have a family sing together.

    You can also consider collecting talks given in Primary earlier in the year that follow the theme and using some of their excerpts in the program. Perhaps the child who initially gave the talk could read or recite those parts. Hope this helps.

  • Jannan

    For the first time this year, we will be having a practice for our program on Saturday. In the past we have always used two Sundays. I am wondering if anyone has any pointers on how I can can make it a little more interesting since we we don't have to worry about the typical things we do when its the sabbath?

    We have reverence jars for our jr and sr primary. When they are reverent we put beans in their jar, when they are not we take them out. If they earned enough beans to make it to the "pizza party" mark they earned a pizza party that they get to do right after the primary program practice.

  • jen

    We had our practice on Saturday last year and it was great. We sent out reminders of the practice and put on them that the practice was in the chapel and so it was Sunday dress. Most of the children dressed and acted very well in the chapel. We met outside of the chapel for a few minutes and I had some coloring pages until most of the children got there. Then, we all went in together. It was quiet in there and they could feel how reverent the chapel should be. We had all the names on the seats and they quietly went to their seat and then we opened with prayer. After the practice we had pizza outside and it was great.

  • leima williams

    Hi, would really like to know more about the music arrangement. Thank you

  • Angie Merrell

    Thank you everyone for sharing your ideas. Our new presidency was just put in yesterday and we needed to have a program ready. Haha- All of these wonderful ideas gave us more than enough help. I am so excited for my new calling!!! May the Lord Bless all of you.

  • Jessica Tenny

    Wow! Thanks to all of you for sharing such great program ideas. You have made my life a little easier this time around.

  • Patsy

    Thank you so much for your wonderful ideas! My counselors and I were also newly called as a primary presidency just a couple of weeks ago and are feeling nervous, but very excited to serve our children, and especially our Heavenly Father. Again, thank so much for your hard work and your dedication to our Heavenly Father's children. I have not met any of you, but I feel your love and your testimonies for our Savior Jesus Christ. Keep up the great work that you do!

  • Cynthia

    Great ideas everyone and thank you so much for sharing. I was wondering if you have ideas you would like to share as to how you may be rewarding or recognizing the children in primary following their presentation. Treats, goodies, etc.?

  • Tammy

    First of all, thanks to everyone who has contributed their program ideas. We will be having ours soon and we couldn't have done it with out you! :lol:

    Also, I was wondering if anyone has a template on an insert to the add to the program that lists all the primary children and songs.

    Thanks again - I love this site! :lol:

  • Kelly

    This is my first time working on the primary program...I never knew how involved and stressful it was until now. Wow! I feel like I've finally got the actually outline down good, but now I'm really nervous about starting the practices and actually doing the program. If anyone has any tips about what to expect and things I should plan for or anything to help the next step run smoothly please share! Thanks!

  • Suzie

    Hi Tammy, Look at my xls worksheet of the program, posted on 9/27/10. There are 8 worksheets and it has exactly what you're looking for. The sidebar on the left has all the 'tips'/"on deck" for the leaders to follow so it runs smoothly. A good idea to get kids to show up for rehearsal the Saturday before the program is to have a Rehearsal/PizzaParty, this has always proven successful for us. Let me know if you need an ".xlsx" or pdf format of the extensive file. Tks, Suzie"

  • Ronda Dennis

    sharing time us usually overlooked on program day so we have a presidencey member over just the sharing/music time. We do stations using the weekly outlines missed while practicing for the program. Our 3 stations this month are:missionary work (visitor);temples (music,done by music leader); prophets (art activity,Jr/game,Sr, done by pres.member). A kiddy munch snack of pretzels, animal crackers,choco teddy grahams,peanuts and m&m's is given in ziplock bags during the missionary guest. Stations last 10 min. each

  • Ronda Dennis

    Sarah #14- we have had Saturday practices the past 2 years because we can not use the chapel with our Sunday Schedule. We have a pizza party following the practice. Last year we had 80 children and nearly all the teachers show up. It was one of our Qt. activities. We bought Little Ceasar Pizza's for $5.00 ea, everybody got 2 pieces.
