Child Evangelism Fellowship
Good News Clubs
What is a Good News Club?
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, just about anywhere the children can easily
and safely meet with their parent's permission. 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.
As with all CEF ministries, the purpose of Good News Club is to evangelize
boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and establish (disciple) them in the Word of
God and in a local church for Christian living.
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.
What is taught in Good News 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 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.
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.
