Children blowing bubbles

What is Good News Club?

Good News Club (GNC) is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship(CEF) in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes and just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission.

What Is Taught in Good News Club?

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 missionary 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.

How Does the Club Benefit Children?

Children learn biblical principals, moral values, character qualities and respect for authority.

Is There Any Cost?

There is no charge for children to attend.

Who Can Attend?

Good News Clubs are open to all boys and girls regardless of religious background. Curriculum is geared for children ages 5-12. Parents are welcome to attend the club with their child.

Now, more than ever, children need the Gospel!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can we really teach the Bible in public schools?

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 Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School that Good News Clubs can 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.

Who Teaches a Good News Club?

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.

In the United States there is a movement among churches to adopt a public school Good News Club. Learn how you could be a part of this movement.

What can Good News Club Do For My Neighborhood?

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.
