Good News Club® is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship® in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, or any safe environment that has parent approval. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF Press®. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story, and review games or other activities focused on the lesson's theme.
The purpose of Good News Club is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God as well as a local church for Christian living.
Yes! The Gospel has been taught freely in public schools all over the world for some time. Now children in the U.S. have that opportunity too! In 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Good News Club. In Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School the court decided that the club could meet in public schools in the United States after school hours, on the same terms as other community groups. Children attend Good News Club only with their parents' permission.
Each club includes a clear presentation of the Gospel and an opportunity for children to trust 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 continue 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.
In the United States there is a movement among churches to adopt a public school Good News Club.Read More
