Dear VBS Director:

    gregation’s information preprinted on the form. Make sufficient copies of this form to report on separate forms your (1) church VBS, (2) mission VBS,
    and (3) any Backyard Bible Clubs. You may report online
    (requiring no mailing except to your state office to request Standard
    VBS Recognition), by mail to: VBS Report Desk (MSN 177), LifeWay Christian Resources, One LifeWay Plaza, Nashville, TN 37234, or by FAX to: LifeWay
    Christian Resources, 615-251-3937. Mail copies to Your ASSOCIATION and STATE CONVENTION.

    name and password will not change from year to year, SBDS requires either Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or greater (recommended) or Net-
    scape Navigator version 4.0 or greater. Cookies must be enabled and pop-up windows allowed. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required for some reports and

    To enter your VBS data into SBDS: (1) Go to the Web site; (2) Enter your congregation’s VBS User Name and Password and click “Log On”; and (3) Click

    NOTE: Requests for Standard VBS recognition should be mailed to your state convention even if reporting VBS information online!
    CAUTION: Do not report a VBS conducted by an established mission that is sponsored by your church. An established mission has its own SBC ID and
    will receive a VBS report form with its preprinted information. Each established mission should report its VBS, mission VBS, or Bible Club directly.
