VBS 2019 Help
Anything VBS related to help you run an awesome program.
Why aren’t my VBS coupons working on my order?
The most common reason for coupons not working is due to unqualified products. The only VBS products that are not qualified for use with coupons are Starter Kits and Lifeway products. All other VBS products including custom VBS banners and custom VBS shirts are eligible for use with coupons!
Bible translation is an important factor in making a decision on my VBS theme, what’s the best way to pick a theme by translation?

Are any of the VBS themes compatible with a Catholic program?
All of our programs are non-denominational Christian, but Roar! has a Catholic version through Our Sunday Visitor. Or, if you’re not as concerned with having strictly/specifically Catholic material, a few of our Catholic customers have had success using CPH's programs (i.e. Miraculous Mission) and shaping it to their needs (likely because of the liturgy-leaning).
Why can’t I use VBS coupons on Starter Kits or Lifeway products?

If this article didn't resolve your issue, you can contact our Customer Service team via Live Chat, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone at 1-800-521-0751. Our office hours are Monday - Friday, 7am-3:30pm PT.
Which VBS programs offer Spanish resources?
The three main programs that offer a variety of Spanish resources are Roar, In the Wild, and El Tren de las Buenas Noticias.
Do any of the VBS themes have a 3-day curriculum or just a 5-day curriculum?
Some of our VBS publishers will make notes online or In the directors guides about modifying the content for reduced days. Although some of our themes don’t explicitly give instructions for modified schedules it’s important to communicate the any of the lessons can be shaped or modified to your church’s specific needs!
