Printable Baptism Programs

This last weekend my third son Sam was baptized.  It was a very sweet and exciting day for all of us.  He couldn’t wait to turn 8 and was beaming the entire day.

Since this is my third son’s baptism, and I served in our Primary as the secretary for a few years, I have made pleanty of baptism programs.  I thought I’d share this simple layout that you can print yourself.

I started out by having three programs to a single sheet of cardstock (or paper).  I selected a simple image of Jesus and John the Baptist and fit it across the bottom.  With a brown border and blue “Californian FB” font (which you probably already have) things are clean and focused on the baptism, not the child.

I printed them on my home ink jet printer on some pearl card stock that my mother in law gifted me.  I love the soft iridescent shine that the paper has.  I cut them right between the lines and there you have it!

Below is an image of a blank program.  If you want to enlarge it, copy it and paste it in your own program with the borders filling an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper.  Then place a text box over the blank space to add your text.

  • I have a mac book if there anyway to download this program with a mac book?

    • Kristina, I don’t know anything about macs unfortunately. But, you should be able to download the image, save it, and open it in a mac program. Then put text boxes over the three programs and fill in your text. Sorry I’m a Google/Android nerd.

  • Thanks for sharing this!!

  • Thank you so much for this! I was going to make my own template, but this is exactly what I was looking for. So much easier! I even put the words to the primary songs we are singing on the back. I’m hoping some friends from other faiths can come!!!

    • I hope your baptism went well! I love the idea of adding the lyrics to the back of the program. Thanks for sharing,

  • These are perfect! Thanks for the shortcut!

  • Thank you so much! This is exactly what I wanted for my son’s special day! Thanks from Moscow, Russia!

  • Hi Amanda,
    Just in case you didn’t know, it looks like there’s something wrong with this post now (at least on my computer;) I tried in Chrome and Explorer and I still can’t see any photos.

  • Thanks for these! My daughter wants to sing the song “Baptism” and these are perfect. Thanks!

  • Thank you! These are perfect! :)

  • Thank you so much for sharing your ideas. The program is perfect and such a great idea. I love the layout.

  • Thank you so much! You have been a lifesaver for me today! I made this for a 16 year old boy today and felt like the picture was totally appropriate. I just made the font a little more “manly” and I was done. Thanks again!

  • Thank you SOOO much! Planning a baptism after a week of Halloween has not been easy, so I’m thankful that I found your template to make a beautiful yet simple program. :-)

  • This is amazing I love it! Thank you so much form the craft and computer challenged!!

  • Beautiful and simple….just what I wanted! Thank you so much for sharing!

  • I love these! I was looking for program ideas online and they all seemed to be focused more on the child then on the sacred event. These are perfect for the feeling that we are going for for my sons baptism. Thank you!

  • Thank you so very very much! The programs are amazing. Thank you for sharing.

  • Thank you for sharing! These are perfect.

  • Hi Amanda. My friend’s son, who is getting baptized, found this invite and loves it. I told my friend I would help her with getting the programs taken care of. I’ve been working on them, but am having trouble getting all three full images to print on one 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. I tried switching my paper setting to A4, but that didn’t work. Any ideas on how I can resize the images so all three will fit completely on one page? Thanks, Geri Anne

    • I’m having the same problem…

  • Thank You for these! I’ve played around with it and have mocked it up for next months impending Baptism!! I did the program with it AND made up some invites as well. Now I’m trying to figure out how to put the music lyrics on the back and have them line up perfectly =)

  • Muchisímas gracias por compartir, habeis sido de una ayuda incalculable.

    El bautizo de un hijo es uno de los momentos más felices y mientras modificaba el programa no podia más que sentir una emoción y agradecimiento muy grande.

    una vez más GRACIAS!!

  • This is great! Used it for my son’s baptism. I love that it is focused on the Savior and the Ordinance, not the child and how old they are.

  • looking good

  • nice post

  • Thankyou so much for the template. It was a huge help and it turned out so nice! The shimmery paper was a nice touch. :)

  • Thank you so much! This is just what I needed and it worked perfectly!!

  • Thanks for sharing your talent with our family! I was not looking forward to having to create my son’s baptism program, and now I don’t have to. You have been a lifesaver!

  • Thank you so much for sharing this Baptismal program. It saved me lots of time from having to create one from scratch…and looks a ton better than anything I could have done! Thanks again!

  • Just wanted to let you that I’ll be using your program for the baptism of my daughter in Germany! Thank you very much for the wonderful design that focuses on the Saviour.

  • Thank you so much for providing this template for free! I really appreciate it!

  • I was recently called as the Ward Mission Leader. Our first baptism is in a few days and its for a very special 16 year old convert. She loves this program and I could never have created anything as beautiful with my limited computer skills. You deserve all of the blessings in your life due to your unselfish spirit in sharing this for others to use.

    Is it possible to modify it so its larger and there are only two programs per page? I have tried to alter this format a few times and not been successful.

    Thanks again for bringing such a blessing to us as an option.
