summer Good News Club

Our purpose

As with all CEF ministries, the purpose of the summer 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.

Interested in hosting a summer Good News Club?

My family hosted a Summer Good News Club at our home for the first time last summer, and we are so glad we did! Not only did we learn firsthand much more about CEF and Good News Clubs than we had previously, but it gave our family an extra opportunity to interact and meet the families in our neighborhood. The coordinator was very helpful in answering questions and in communicating. We enjoyed getting to know the summer missionaries, and they did a great job working with the kids. Recently we had neighbor kids ask if we were going to do one again – they sure had fun!
