We are so happy we will soon be seeing some of you in-person once again for After School/In School Good News Clubs! Your Good News Club teachers are so excited to come back and they will have brand new Bible lessons to share with you, a great continued missionary story every week, plus songs and games! There may be snacks as well as a contest that will run for a couple months where you can earn rewards for learning your Bible verses, filling out a weekly Take Time to Review paper from the Bible lesson, respecting the rules, and more.
Your parent/guardian must sign you up prior to your first day of club, although you may begin anytime during the year. We will keep the following list updated as we receive approval from each school district.

A Good News Club is a Bible Club for children ages 5-12. It is held one hour and fifteen minutes a week, typically from October through April. These clubs are held where ever children can be gathered. In 2019-2020, we held 11 After School/In School Good News Clubs throughout the county. Clubs are sometimes held in homes, churches, community centers, and daycares. Wherever they are held, Good News Clubs are taught by screened volunteers. We have a 5–year curriculum which is designed to teach through the Bible. This curriculum includes a Bible lesson, Bible memory verse, missionary story, songs, contests, games, and missionary emphasis. The clubs are entirely free for children to participate; any monetary offering collected is given directly to missionaries supported by Child Evangelism Fellowship of Eastern PA, Inc.
The first of three Bible lesson series we plan to journey through this year begins with stories from the book of Acts in the New Testament that tell what happened after Jesus went back to heaven, and the first missionaries. We are excited to share these stories from God’s Word with your students, especially the “Good News” of Jesus Christ.
To remember the stories and truth taught in club, a Take Time to Review is sent home with the students each week. We encourage them to take time during the week to read from the Bible and then to answer the few short questions in the lesson. Although these booklets are not homework, we hope that parents will join us in encouraging your child to develop a daily habit of spending time with God and reading His Word, as well as to memorize each week’s Bible verse.
