The "Sacrament Meeting Program" app provides users a quick, easy way to create their sacrament meeting programs. Then it gives them the option to (1) print traditional paper programs, or (2) give members access to a digital version of the program on their phones.
Wards/branches can use this app to create and print traditional paper programs, or they can go 100% paperless saving literally thousands of trees.
This app offers many advantages over the old traditional paper programs, these include:
o Automatically formats and creates weekly sacrament meeting programs.
o Create both traditional paper programs and digital programs (visible in the app).
o Ward and auxiliary leaders can collaborate to add/manage the agenda items, calendar events and announcements in next week's program.
o Last minute program changes go live instantly in the digital program.
o Hymns and music deep link to the "Sacred Music" mobile app.
o Missionaries deep link to the "Called to Serve" mobile app.
o Pictures of recent stake/ward activities can be uploaded by auxiliary leaders for members to view and download from the app.
Traditional vs Digital Programs
1. Paper Programs – Once the program is created, a PDF version can be downloaded and printed in a traditional, two-page layout.
2. Digital Programs – The digital program can be viewed by scanning a QR code on the bottom of the printed program, or by downloading the Sacrament Meeting Program app and joining your ward/branch group.
Each sacrament meeting program is organized into content blocks. The app helps Admins create each block, one at a time. Then it does all of the formatting to create beautifully printed programs. Each week, your Sunday programs are available to print or view digitally.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs a little work.
We have downloaded this app and it is easy to use but the missionaries have quite a gap between them when you view the finished program. And needs to show the emails for the missionaries form our ward.
Saved my new Calling!
I got called to be the Ward Program & Bulletin person. New Ward, new Calling, and no time to prepare… This app saved my sanity and stress level. Everyone is complimenting me on the new Programs and how neat, clean and readable they are. All the credit goes to this app! It’s structured well, and with a bit of tweaking here and there, to fit my needs, it’s coming together beautifully.
I had an issue with trying to upload my own cover photos and I contacted the app support. He helped me through it, step by step. I’m eternally grateful for amazing Saints who help lighten others loads. Thank you!
It’s not perfect
I had a rough start, but we reached out to the owner, and were able to get in. This is. Brilliant concept. Give it a shot, you’ll save time in the long run. 5 stars because of support that we got. I hope to see this get better and better.
