Indian Lakes CEF

Good News Club


Good News Club® (GNC) meets weekly with groups of children in public schools- right after school. GNC teachers are taught and screened thoroughly. Each week teachers presents an exciting Bible lesson along with action-packed songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme. Every club also includes strong discipleship training to build character and strengthen moral and spiritual growth. The chance for a child to trust Jesus as Savior is given each week. As with all CEF ministries, the purpose of GNC 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.


Teachers are Christians who are concerned for boys and girls work together volunteering their time and energy to teach Good News Club. They are trained by CEF 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. Trained teens can help with all the parts of a club! Any child who attends public school is invited to attend GNC. Let a Good News Club be your mission field today!


Public school clubs are ideal because children are there! 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 Clubs v. Milford Central School that Good News Clubs can meet in public schools in the United States after school hours on the same terms as other community groups. You can volunteer at a school GNC near you!

Why the kids love GNC

We wanted to know why kids love Good News Club. So, we interviewed them and asked them to share with us why. Many simply responded with “because we learn about God”.  As many of these children don’t attend church, Good News Club is their church! This vital ministry allows us to share the Gospel and disciple many children who may never hear otherwise.
