Good News Clubs
Throughout the school year, children are learning many things. Are they learning the most important thing – how to follow Jesus? A weekly activity called a Good News Club®can help. Trained teachers lead children in songs, games, and lessons. Like every ministry of CEF, the Gospel is taught, with an opportunity for children to put their faith in Christ. Then, each week, children learn what the Bible teaches about living for God and growing to know Him more. These clubs also foster community through regular attendance and team work. Through fun, friends, and interaction, children learn more than facts and figures, but how to have a relationship with God.
A Good News Club can identify a home in the neighborhood that is safe for a child to go to in times of trouble. It brings the teaching of biblical morality to his neighborhood. It connects the child and his family to others where they live developing a good community spirit. When you teach God’s Word to children in your neighborhood, your neighbors learn what you believe. Community centers and housing complexes are also great places for a club.
Each week an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF Press is presented. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.
Each club includes a clear presentation of the Gospel and an opportunity for children to trust the Lord Jesus as Savior. Every club also includes strong discipleship training to build character and strengthen moral and spiritual growth. All children are encouraged to attend a local church.
Christians who are concerned for boys and girls work together volunteering their time and energy to teach Good News Club. They are trained by Child Evangelism Fellowship to have a club that is exciting and informative so that children will want to keep coming. Teachers are asked to sign the CEF Statement of Faith and agree to abide by the policies of the organization. Adults working with the program are screened according to our child protection policy.
