How do I change the Bible Translation? [FAQ]


In addition to the default New International Version translation for Bible readings, Christian Worship: Service Builder now includes three additional translations recognized by the WELS denomination as accurately presenting God's Word.

Now, the Service Builder software offers the following bible translations for readings:

  • New International Version (default)
  • Christian Standard Bible
  • English Standard Version 2016
  • Evangelical Heritage Version

It is important to note that this change will affect only the Bible readings for services. Other liturgical and hymnal elements, like Psalm engravings and Gospel Acclamations will not change with different translations.

Both the lectionary and bible translation preferences are tied to each location on a site.

To change the Bible translation for your Christian Worship: Service Builder site,

  1. From any view, click the Settings gear icon in the upper right corner.
  2. Click “Account Settings”. If you do not see Account Settings in your Settings, you will need to reach out to the Owner of your site or contact support.
  3. In the Locations section, click the location you want to edit.
  4. Use the drop-down menus to choose your translation.
  5. Click “Save”.
