If you want help getting the word out about your upcoming 2021 primary program, I suggest using a primary program invitation! Top it off with sacrament meeting primary program covers created by your primary kids!
As a parent, grandparent, neighbor or friend, it’s always nice to receive a formal invitation to your kids’ upcoming primary program! Do so with a primary program invitation!
Available are quarter sheets or half sheets so you can print what fits your needs:
Access my printables at my Resource Library. Instructions for accessing my Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post. Fill in the date, time and ward name before making copies. Cut apart and pass out!
Urge primary families to invite their non-member neighbors! Share the document on your ward’s FB page or hand out extra copies at the end of primary.
These are also great to attach to program parts! If you need help writing a program, make sure to check out my 2021 Primary Program Outline post HERE.
Primary Program Covers
The first program option is to have the kids sign their names on the back page (you’ll want to do this over the course of a few weeks to ensure all the kids sign it). If space is limited it can trickle on to the front but I like to have it stay on the back.
Add your ward’s name and date right below the picture if you like (the font I use is Cambria size 25, if you want it to match)! Do this by:
- Downloading the cover PDF document
- Opening the document in Preview and click on Tools > Annotate > Text
- A text box will appear in the middle of the document. Drag and drop it to where you’d like to type text
- Repeat with more text boxes (can copy and paste works well) until you’ve filled the document
You can also simply hand write the information before you photo copy.
The next is a blank primary program cover for them to draw their own pictures relating to the Doctrine & Covenants. Maybe ask them to relate their drawing to their program part. They can also sign their name…
A Word of Caution
Tip: Have your primary presidency counselors offer the opening and closing prayers! Then offer to pick the hymns if it will help plan the program!
Place baskets (with pens, optional) at the back of both doors of the chapel and members can place the filled out documents there as they leave the meeting.
TIP: Ask the bishopric to announce how to use the cards before they turn the time over to the primary.
After the program, during singing time, pass out a treat (my treat topper is coming soon!!) and read the comments to the kids! Or better yet, ask the bishopric to come in and read the comments! It’s a welcome relief from being in charge for a 2nd hour! Hearing what the congregation has to say about the program is a real highlight!
