Boys and girls ages 5 through 12 gather with their friends to sing interesting visualized songs. They enjoy playing games that help them memorize a verse from God’s Word. Through the missionary time they learn of children around the world who are following Jesus. The visualized Bible story applies God’s Word to what is happening in their lives. They play review games that help them remember what was taught. An opportunity to receive Jesus Christ as Savior is given. Activities that help them grow in Christ are presented.
Currently, Child Evangelism Fellowship of Cumberland County sponsors Good News Clubs in the area. For more information, please contact CEF of Cumberland County either by telephone or e-mail.
Good News Clubs meet in the neighborhood where children live. We want to make it easy and convenient for them to attend. They meet most often in a home. This home can serve as a link between the church and the child’s home, bringing the good news right to where the child lives. They can meet in a community center or most anywhere children will gather together.
Also, in some areas, we have Good News Clubs after school right on the school property. We call them After-School / In-School Good News Clubs. This is a Pennsylvania State approved program.
Christians who are concerned for boys and girls work together volunteering their time and energy to teach Good News Clubs. They are trained by CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP of EASTERN PA to have a club that is exciting and informative so that children will want to keep coming.
Teachers are asked to sign our Statement of Faith and agree to abide by the policies of the organization (CEF of E. PA is non-charismatic).
A Good News Club can identify a home in the neighborhood that is safe for a child to go to in time 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.
