Good News Clubs

Can We Really Teach the Bible in Public Schools?

Now, more than ever, children need the Gospel.

Children today face an increasingly dangerous and hopeless world. Unchurched families in your 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 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School that the Good News Club 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. There is no cost for children to attend.

Good News Clubs are weekly Bible clubs bringing the Gospel and solid discipleship teaching to kids ages 5-12.

What is taught in Good News Club?

Each week an exciting Bible lesson using CEF® curriculum 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 the Lord Jesus as Savior. Every club also includes strong discipleship training to build character and strengthen moral and spiritual growth.

Who leads a Good News Club?

Born-again believers who are concerned for boys and girls work together volunteering their time and energy to teach a 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 and undergo a background check as is required by the Child Protection Policy of CEF.
