Every year, over a thousand children hear the story of Jesus at our local county fair. Of those who hear the message, hundreds will choose to follow Him with their lives.
Unfortunately, many of these kids are unchurched—they don’t have an opportunity to attend church or Sunday school. Is there follow-up for them?
YES! Every child or teenager who enters the Little Red Schoolhouse is given an opportunity to join The Mailbox Club—a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship. They simply fill out a form indicating their name, address and age, and a Bible study for their age level will come to them in the mail. The only cost is the price of a postage stamp.
Every time the child completes the Bible study and puts it in the mail, it will be returned, corrected, along with a new lesson to complete.
In addition to the Mailbox Clubs, there are Good News Clubs! These clubs are also a ministry of C.E.F. in which trained volunteer teachers meet with groups of children in public schools—after school hours, in homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parents’ permission.
Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from C.E.F. 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 C.E.F. ministries, the purpose of the Good News Club is to evangelize boys and girls with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and then establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.
Is there a Good News Club in your elementary school or your community? For more information go to: http://www.cefonline.com/index.php?Itemid=100049/&id=13&option=com_content&view=category
