One of the first projects I shared on The Mormon Home was our ward Priesthood Preview–about two years ago! Those printables were overdue for an update and I really like the new look I’m sharing here today. Feel free to use for your ward, print, and share!
The main look is the same across the printable set and there are several options. First the invitation. An email or Evite works well, but I am always a fan of printing something on paper to be sure everyone has the relevant information. There are two options. One is four per page, a sort of post card, made to copy front to back. You fill in the Date, Time, and Location with a pen. Old school!
The second is also mean to be copied front to back and then cut and folded in half. More like a standard invitation.
At the Priesthood Preview, I usually make the agenda or “program” that is handed out at the door. I made a super simple letter head style see that you can fill in with your own agenda. I included ours below so you can see how we run our Priesthood Preview. The PDF you can download is blank (like on the right side) except for the top black letterhead section.
I like to give this handout to the boys. These are five “To Do” items that are found in the Faith in God booklet. They are meant to be completed in preparation for priesthood ordination. These handouts are two per page, meant to be cut in half. We also give the boys a For the Strength of Youth pamphlet, a True to the Faith booklet, a Duty to God booklet and sometimes a Preach My Gospel mini-book.
Finally, I added something new! A bunch of quotes and scriptures about the Aaronic Priesthood with the same “look.” They would make a great backdrop behind the refreshment table or at the front of the room. You could hang them from a string, banner style. There are 6 that are standard letter size and four that are tabloid (11×17). You’ll probably need to get the 11×17 ones printed at the copy shop. I think they would look great in a sort of puzzle together.
