Good News Club® (GNC™) 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.
What is taught in 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 and review games.
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 Club v. Milford Central School the Good News Clubs can meet in public schools in the United States after school hours on the same terms as other community groups.
Who teaches a Good News Club? Christians who are concerned for boys and girls work together volunteering their time and energy to teach . 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.
