Printing Instructions
52 Sundays is an electronic resource. You can either download the entire year of resources above.  Bulletin inserts are available as a single insert, or two-to-a-page, for ease of printing.
  1. Download the entire resource, or the specific Sunday’s documents.
  2. Open the PDF of the bulletin insert, and click Print.*

*If printing the two-to-a-page inserts on letter size paper, make sure the scaling is at 100%.  This will help the wite border to be consistent on all sides and will allow you to only have to cut it down the middle to make two inserts. 

Common Misconceptions

I don’t have time to download this resource and share during a Sunday service.

This resource is meant to be shared within a minute. We wanted it to be short and concise, so it’s easy to digest.

Where would I use it?

52 Sundays is versatile. You can share it in a small group or from the pulpit during a main service.

Can I trust these are SBC missionaries?

All of our missionaries are vetted and provided to us by the communication staff of each Southern Baptist entity.

Security Notice on International Missionaries

More than half of the nearly 3,700 international missionaries we support around the world serve in areas so dangerous they cannot be identified in public media. This is why many of our missionaries are either not identified or use pseudonyms.

SBC of Virginia (SBCV) churches support missions and ministries across Virginia, North America, and around the world through the Cooperative Program. This resource is produced by the SBCV in partnership with our Southern Baptist Great Commission partners.
