Churches are looking for creative solutions to do VBS in unprecedented circumstances. We at LifeWay VBS want to make sure you have everything you need to do VBS in whatever creative way you choose. That’s why we’ve partnered with LifeWay Worship to make sure you’re able to use the VBS 2020 music during a livestreamed or prerecorded Worship Rally this summer. There are two easy steps for you to take advantage of this offer.
- Check with your church leaders to see if your church already has a streaming license through CCLI. (Note: This is a different level than just the basic CCLI license. If your church has been live streaming worship services for a long time, you’re probably already covered.) If you don’t already have one, click HERE to obtain a Streaming License from CCLI.com.
This license will cover more than 300,000 copyrights you may want to stream.
- Include the VBS songs in your church’s next CCLI report. (This is something your church should already be doing regularly. You’ll just need to make sure the person who does the reporting includes any VBS songs you used.) For more information about online reporting, visit CCLI’s guide HERE.
Note that this gives you permission to use VBS songs and music/choreography videos as part of your streaming or prerecorded Worship Rally or music rotation. It does not allow you to post a stand-alone video directly to your website or any public social media platform (including YouTube). We recommend you either livestream or prerecord and post your Worship Rally to a private or secure site where all families can access it using a password or after being granted permission.
If you have questions or need further assistance regarding this topic, please do not hesitate to call LifeWay Worship at (800) 436-3869.
