Guidelines for the Sacrament Meeting Presentation

Guidelines for the Sacrament Meeting Presentation

Taken right from the 2012 outline

Under the direction of the bishop or branch president, the children’s sacrament meeting presentation is normally given during the fourth quarter of the year. Meet with the counselor in the bishopric or branch presidency who oversees Primary early in the year to discuss preliminary plans. Obtain his approval when the plans are completed.
Plan for the children to present the program based on the monthly sharing time themes. Throughout the year, keep notes of children’s talks and personal experiences for possible use in the presentation. As you plan for the children to share what they have learned about this year’s theme, think of ways they can help the congregation focus on the gospel doctrines they are teaching. A member of the bishopric may conclude the meeting with brief remarks.
As you prepare the presentation, remember the following guidelines:
• Practices should not take time away from classes or families unnecessarily.
• Visuals, costumes, and media presentations are not appropriate for sacrament meeting.
