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 parent's permission. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible Lesson using colorful materials from CEF Press.
Join God's invitation to work in a spiritual harvest...
among the children in Good News Club!
As with all CEF ministries, the purpose of Good News Clubs 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.
Ask God for doors to open, so that more children can hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through the Good News Clubs.
How do I get involved?
There are several opportunities to be involved with a Good News Club. You can pray for the children and teachers in the club. Become a club teacher or helper by completing the GNC volunteer process and asking about training opportunities.
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.
Unfortunately, most of our regular Good News Clubs are dormant through COVID. Please pray we will be allowed back into the schools soon!
What is taught in
Good New Club?
Each week an exciting Bible Lesson using CEF materials is presented. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory 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.

It's happening... in the Good News Clubs.
With only a couple of hours, on one afternoon each week, thousands of volunteers across South Carolina are literally changing the world forever by introducing Children to Jesus Christ! Ever since the Supreme Court's Decision in 2001, Child Evangelism Fellowship has been partnering with local churches to reach the world's largest mission field: Children. Each year, over 10 million hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Good News Clubs around the world. However, as great as our efforts are, there are still many who have not heard! We're looking for kingdom minded pastors, who will help be a part of making a lasting impact in the generation of tomorrow! Join with us today, and let's reach the lost and disciple believers together!
