Sing several Primary songs in the Children’s Songbook on baptism with this Sing-A-Baptism Story! It’s easy, effective, and a great way to sing through LOTS of songs with a similar theme!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Baptism Sing-a-Story Primary Singing Time Ideas

A Sing-A-Story is a story where the words of the songs tell most of the story.  Songs are arranged in order to tell the story or develop a theme.  You can do this with almost any topic!

Simply read the narrative and follow the story outline.  Some of the songs may be unfamiliar (which is wonderful!).  So make sure to post the words using this flip chart format.

They were going to be 8 soon and were so excited to be baptized!   {Draw a number “8” on the board}

Sing: I Like My Birthdays p. 104 vs. 1
 
They had learned from Primary and from their parents that there were a few things they had to do to prepare for their baptism.
 
They had to have faith in Jesus Christ.  {Write “Faith” on the board}
 
Sing the song: Faith p. 96
 
Shawn and Amanda knew their faith would continue to grow if they kept reading their scriptures, saying their prayers and going to church. {Put the picture of a child praying on the board}
They understood that if they make a wrong choice, they could say sorry, try better next time to choose the right.  That was called repentance.  {Write “Repentance” on the board}
 
Sing the song: Repentance p. 98
 
Amanda and Shawn knew that they would be baptized just like Jesus was baptized long ago. {Put the picture of Christ being baptized on the board}
Sing:  Baptism p. 100 vs. 1-2
 
Amanda and Shawn were grateful for Jesus’ example and were happy they could be baptized by immersion too! {Put a picture of a child being baptized on the board}
Sing: When Jesus Christ Was Baptized p. 102
 
Amanda and Shawn knew that after their baptism they would be made clean just like the earth is made clean after it rains. {Draw a picture of a rainbow on the board}
 

Sing: When I Am Baptized p. 103 {optional – use rainbow wands to create rainbows during verses and sing “legato” or smoothly and create raindrops while singing “staccato” or choppy during the chorus – have the piano play legato and staccato as well.  Find details on using wands for When I Am Baptized.

After their baptism, they would receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. {Add a picture of child being confirmed to the board}

Sing: The Holy Ghost p. 105
 
The gift of the Holy Ghost would then be their constant companion if they continued to choose the right throughout their life. {Add a picture of a child choosing the right to the board}
Sing: Listen, Listen p. 107
 
What was even better was that they could renew their baptismal covenants each week by partaking of the sacrament! {Put a picture of children taking the sacrament on the board
Sing: The Sacrament p. 72
 
Amanda and Shawn were grateful they chose to be baptized and knew what a blessing it would be in their lives.  {Add a picture of Amanda and Shawn in white clothes}

TIP: If you end up being short on time, omit the songs/story lines that don’t directly relate to baptism, and only sing the 4 baptism songs.
