Good News Club
Mondays, 3:00-4:30pm
begins September 13

Child Evangelism Fellowship is a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls  with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.

Now, more than ever, children need the Gospel
Children today face an increasingly dangerous and hopeless world. Unchurched families in every country—and even locally, in your own community—have no legacy of faith to pass on to their children. They do not know the reason for our hope.

A Good News Club® meets kids right where they are
In schools (yes, schools!), community centers, churches, and neighborhood homes, teachers who are screened, trained, and equipped lead action-packed Good News Clubs every week, delivering the timeless truths of the Bible in exciting, engaging ways. Children learn the Gospel, and many come to know Jesus as their Savior.
