Can we really teach the Bible in public schools?
Yes! The Gospel has been taught freely in public schools all over the world for many years. In the U.S. we have had that opportunity since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Good News Clubs v. Milford Central School, in 2001, that Good News Clubs can meet in public schools in the United States after school hours on the same terms as other community groups.
What is taught at 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, review game and 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 effective so that children will want to keep coming. Teachers are asked to sign the CEF Worker's Compliance Agreement and agree to abide by the policies of the organization. Adults working in this program are screened according to our child protection policy.
Is there any cost for my child to attend?
There is no charge for your child to attend. An optional missionary offering may be taken each week.
