In this tutorial, I will show you how to create Church Programs using Microsoft Publisher. With this program, you will only have one template to choose from, but you can customize the template the way you want it. You can even delete the graphics on the Church Program and insert your own. This tutorial will walk you through the basic steps of creating Church Programs in Microsoft Publisher.
Let’s begin by opening your program and looking for the Programs link under Publication Type. Once you find the Program link, click it to load all of the programs. In the middle panel, you will see the Religious template. Click that template to select it. In the far right panel, you will see a preview of the program, the color scheme option, and the font scheme option. Drop these two boxes down and make your selections. Then click the Create button in the bottom to open the Church Program in a new window.
Now you can edit the text and graphics on the Church Program. In the new window, you will see the template you chose. You will also notice the page numbers below the Church Program. These numbers is what you will need to click to see the different pages in the program. You will need to edit each page of the program.
We will begin the editing with the graphics because you probably want to edit everything else around them. At the top of the template, you will notice the Globe. If you want to delete this and add your own graphic, you can. Simply click the graphic to select it and press the Delete key on your keyboard. If you want to leave the graphic there and add more graphics, you can do that also.
To insert graphics, you have two choices; use the clipart in Publisher or use your own graphics. To use the clipart, go to the top of the window and click Insert > Picture > Clipart. The clipart panel will open on the left side of your program. You will then need to click the Go button to view all of the clipart or search for a particular clipart by typing the name in the search field. Once you find clipart you want to use, double click it to insert it. Then click the clipart on the Church Program and move it to where you want it.
If you want to add your own graphics, go to the top of your window and click Insert > Picture > From File. When the box pops up, look for the graphic you want to use on your computer. Double click the graphic to open it. Then move the graphic to where you want it.
When you are ready to edit your text, highlight the text in a text box and delete it. Then type what you want in the text box. You will need to go through all of the pages and edit the text. If you want to edit the text style, size, and color, highlight the text and use the text options at the top of your Microsoft Publisher window. Once you are finished with the Church Program, save it and print it.
