4 Strategies for This Summer
Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be a new VBS theme next year?
Yes! We’re well underway with the production of VBS 2021 and are excited about what God has in store for next summer. We will unveil the theme and Bible content later this summer.
Can I save Concrete & Cranes for next year?
Concrete & Cranes will continue to be available for purchase as part of the Backyard Kids Club line only. Decorations, Activity Books, and ancillary products will no longer be available after this summer. We believe the message of Concrete & Cranes was divinely appointed for the uncertain times we’re facing this year—He is our Rock and our solid foundation. A foundation that will not crumble no matter what life throws at it.
What is the last date I can purchase Concrete & Cranes resources?
Concrete & Cranes materials will be available, while supplies last, from lifeway.com and Customer Service through October 1, 2020.
What if I need to return items?
Realizing that VBS may have to take place later than usual this year, we are extending the return date for unused VBS materials purchased through lifeway.com or Customer Service to October 1, 2020. For further information, please view our return policy.
Can I use VBS music in a livestream or virtual VBS experience?
LifeWay VBS has partnered with LifeWay Worship to grant gratis licenses to churches to use the VBS 2020 music during a livestream or prerecorded Worship Rally throughout the period of the COVID-19 pandemic. To obtain permission, churches must first complete two easy steps, which are outlined HERE.
How I can I get my VBS leaders ready if we can’t meet in person?
Training videos for preschool and kids Bible study leaders, as well as crafts, snacks, missions, music, and recreation rotation leaders are available to members of the LifeWay VBS Directors Club and also on the LifeWay VBS YouTube channel. Additional videos and training models are available to VBS Directors Club members. Churches that purchased the VBS 2020 Preschool Starter Kit with Digital Add-on and/or VBS 2020 Kids Starter Kit with Digital Add-on have the advantage of easily sharing digital leader guides and teaching plans with their volunteers. Go ahead and send teachers their teaching materials so that they can begin planning at home.
I already purchased my Starter Kits without the digital add-on. Can I add that on after the fact?
Yes, you may upgrade your standard Preschool Starter Kit or Kids Starter Kit with a digital add-on for $30. The digital add-on includes one digital copy of each leader guide (Bible study and rotations) included in the Starter Kit of your choice. It does not include digital leader packs or Preschool or Kids Activity Books. Please call Customer Service at 1-800-458-2772 to upgrade to the digital add-on.
