God Loves YOU!

God Loves YOU!

               I’m glad you took a second, with all that is going on in the world to pause here with me today. Do you know God loves you? Like a depths-which-cannot-be-understood kind of love for you. If you are blessed enough to become a parent, godparent, aunt, uncle, you will be able to understand a portion of it, but it goes much further than that. Today I want to talk about His love for you, His love for us, His love for each person walking this planet – friend or foe. So grab a bible or pull it up on your device and lets expose some truths we can take to heart today. I’ll be using the NIV.

               1 John 4:7-8 says “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” We all have the capacity to love, God is love, therefore God resides in each of us and we should tap into that with our interactions with others so that we can love them as Christ first loved us. We can easily read John 3:16 and be dismissive. God loved the world, that doesn’t necessarily mean me. 1 John 4:9-11 takes it a step further, “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” Here it clearly states not only the depth of His love for us (who would you be willing to sacrifice your child for?), but it also reiterates the importance of loving one another. Romans 8:37 – 39 puts it this way “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, either the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” To make a defining statement like that in the face of all the author had lived is such a powerful statement. We are conquerors through Christ and we should walk forward each day in the love and light that He gives us. So maybe you are thinking “ok, great you threw some words that regular people spoke…but what about God directly saying it?” Isaiah 54:10 says it so beautifully “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you”. This is a promise straight from God that no matter how bad it gets that He will be with you, He will love you, and He will give you peace. Those shaking mountains are the obstacles you will face and the hills being removed are the times you will turn your back on Him. We all face those decisions and sometimes choose the wrong path but He will love you through it all! We know when you turn back around, choose God, He rejoices! “The Lord your God is with you, the Might Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17. Are you beginning to understand some of His love for you? Not only for you but your family too! “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.” Deuteronomy 7:9. What a beautiful promise to us, for us, for our children, and generations to come. No human love can have that much impact over that many generations. We must know the love of our Father, grow it in our hearts and sow that love back into the world to grow in our neighbors.

               I pray today that this message opened your eyes a little, opened your mind just a bit to the love that Jesus has for you. The depth and height of it, the endless bounds, the redeeming qualities that His love has. Take a chance, take a few minutes of your day inviting God into your heart and life. See all the great things He will do for you!! Can’t wait to talk to you next month!

Not the finish line, but a checkpoint!

            Wow, what God is doing in the new year has been incredible! Guilford County Schools has opened their doors back up to outside groups! This means…all those clubs that got paused due to COVID? Well, they are in the works of getting established once again! Thank you God that we can say we were able to reach children in the 2021-2022 school year!

            That’s not all!! We are excited to announce the establishment of 5 new clubs!! Can you believe it? We gave the first fruits, all we had when we established those clubs and God has multiplied the investment by fulfilling the vision of getting into even more schools than before! We are partnering with New Bethel Baptist in High Point, Charity Baptist, Change The Nations Church and Lebanon in Greensboro to bring you these new clubs. Are you interested? Do you live near these churches and want to serve or have a child in elementary school? Please email us (cefgreatergso@gmail.com) and we will be happy to connect you with available services in your area! These clubs have either just started or will be coming in March. We have more schools that we are already looking at getting in to and are excited for all the new lives we will be able to touch.

            Want to get connected with us? We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Volunteer Center of The Triad for The Human Race to bring you the Children’s Area. This area will be children and family friendly where you can take a break, get some information, and gather some resources! Gates open at 9 AM and we will be there until it wraps up! Come on out, meet some of the people from the local chapter and get some resources for you to use and to minister to you! Would you like to walk for us? Would you like to sponsor a walker? Feel free to reach out to us (cefgreatergso@gmail.com or 336-645-8877) and we will get you signed up! We look forward to meeting so many people in the community and having some time of excitement and fun while fellowshipping!

            Looking towards summer we are ramping up our ideas and process for CYIA. Christian Youth In Action is a neat summer ministry program that allows 12 years to college age to work with children in 5 Day Clubs and other summer programming. This teaches our youth a sense of worth, championing the kingdom, and an eternal perspective of their future. These clubs are sponsored by CEF and local churches within the community. Are you a youth who has some free time this summer? Would you like to serve in with children? Are you looking for a part time job? Then reach out to us (cefgreatergso@gmail.com or 336-645-8877) and we would love to talk more about the opportunities and experiences you would get to take part in.

            Hopefully this blog leaves you with a sense of excitement and joy for all the ways that God is moving in our own back yard! He is establishing new footholds in our community that cannot be shaken! We are reaching out to our children to provide a lasting and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We look forward to bringing you news about new clubs, the new areas we are serving in, and ways that YOU can take part in all that we do. Until next week, have a blessed one!

Getting It Right

               Child Evangelism Fellowship has a long history of getting it right, for 85 year actually. Their mission has always been to spread the Gospel far and wide to impact as many people as possible. This starts with evangelizing the children and in turn they evangelize to their parents and their friends. Children have an important role when it comes to reaching the next generations. They will grow up to be the leaders of society and so we must start young in the mission to help them to know God. We must work with them to foster a healthy working knowledge of Jesus Christ and live on mission no matter where they are.

               If you have been following the blog at all, you know we have covered a wide array of topics. These include giving, serving, parenting and Gospel advice. We seek to equip as many people as possible with the knowledge of who Jesus is so they can spread it far and wide. Our blog is just one of the many tools that we use to share information and help others, especially kids, in their walk with Christ. This is where YOU come in! We want to hear from you! What things would you like to read about? Is there anything you want us to dive further into? Needing knowledge on a specific program or resources for a particular age group? We are here to help! Seriously, send us a message on our website or email us at cefgreatergso@gmail.com . Please know that our desire is to better serve YOU! To reach out to you, educate you, and give you encouragement! All questions and comments will be reviewed, and we look forward to going over them in the coming weeks.

               We are excited to announce a new blog “featuring” series. These will be brought to you by experienced pastors and child care workers. Highlighting our K-5 range of topics such as authority, school, bullying and image. We will also explore a little bit of the older kids. What would you, as a parent, want to know as you enter middle and high school years? Hear from those who have experience with those ages and how to approach them. This blog series will begin happening soon, once a month, on the 3rd Friday of the month.

               We are happy to also announce another new series that will feature interviews with staff, volunteers and others that are involved in CEF and the Greater Greensboro Area. This will be a weekly blog as well, occurring on the 4th Friday of each month. These blogs will dive into who these people are, their hearts for this ministry and some of their future goals and ideas. We are looking forward to discovering more about the people that are the heart of this ministry and all they do for the children.

               We look forward to bringing you new and exciting things as they happen, “getting it right”, and bringing you fresh new looks from the inside of CEF. See you next week!

Finally Tackling The Tension

               So we have talked a lot about the different things that can come up in tension for us and for our children. We have talked about how tension shows up in our lives. We have also seen biblical evidence of tension which gives us hope here, today. So what do we do now? Make sure that we stand solid on two methods of attacking it. Real world and spiritual.

               Did you know the command “Do not be afraid” is found in the Bible 365 times? Interesting that there is exactly the same number of days in a year. I do not think this is a coincidence. The command is not admonishing us for some lack of faith or not trying hard enough. It is a reminder for us each day that troubles may come but to not be afraid and rely on God. We must combat the things we fear with the biblical truth. Psalm 27:1 says, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7. He knows that sometimes we are just hurting inside. These are times when He holds us closer, and we can rest in that promise. Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So we can use the Word of God not only as a reference, a page by page ledger of promises, but also as a sword to guard us and attack the devil. “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7. Surround yourselves in Godly things, make your paths straight and upright, making known to those around you who’s child you are.

               I am sure you are thinking, how do you arm yourself in the “real world”? This comes with maturity and will propel you into growth, but you have to stick with it. Do a 30 day challenge and only listen to Christian music. Go through Amazon or Lifeway and find a good looking devotional and challenge yourself for 30 days to read it. Most things, after 30 days are much easier to adopt as a daily habit. Greeting God before you “greet your day” will put a biblical perspective on your day. It will allow God to communication with you, love on you, reassure you, settle things that are on your mind. This helps begin the day with a fresh mind set. Check what you are watching on TV and see if it is worth it to keep after 30 days. It is amazing the refreshing spirit that God can place on us when we meet Him on solid ground. It could be food that has become the thing we desire. It could mean going on a fast, the reset the balance. That balance is where we find solid ground. If we have something that we idolize more than God, it will set our life out of balance, make it harder to see God’s path and harder to hear His voice. I would encourage you to find a church, if you aren’t already in one. It is much easier to stray from the path if you aren’t hearing a message weekly, engaging with those at the campus and being accountable in the relationships that you have. They will help promote growth in your life in general and in your Christian walk. (And yes, sometimes it is painful, but sometimes our own limbs hurt and so will the body of Christ.)

               I encourage each of you to walk forward into all that God is calling you into, even if it is uncomfortable. Start living the Christian life and see how beautiful the blessings and rewards are! Until next week, stay blessed and stay safe!

Red Light, Green Light, Yellow Light

               This is a game that children enjoy playing. With the yellow light you try to be sneaky with how far ahead you can get. With driving, do you slow down or speed up when you see that yellow light? Spiritually, does a yellow light mean wait on God or run on ahead? I think it means proceed with caution. The question is, how do we proceed with caution?

               Proverbs 3:1-8 (NLT) says it this way “My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation. Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil. Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones. “Let’s break this down because that can be a lot to take in. First things first, you have to learn the word of God so that you can have the word in you heart at all times. Don’t neglect to be loyal and kind to those around you. Take practical steps to incorporate God into your daily life through scripture, worship and even journaling for some. Switch it to K-Love, start your day with the One Year Bible, and pray about the things going on in your circle. Who you are is more important than what you do. If you allow God to take root, to really take hold of you, you will begin transforming into God’s image and therefore the goodness and mercy of God can flow out of you into your circle. Take your worries and your problems to God in petition. He listens to you and hears you. Even better, you can recruit friends to be a prayer circle! Tension will expose the cracks that are there, it is up to us to allow God into that process and repair it! You must be faithful where you are. If you are in tension, then buckling down and really surrounding yourself with the uplifting grace of God to lift you out of the valley. If it is on the mountain tops, it is remembering who got you there and praising God for His work in you and your circle. Who you are proceeds what you do. If you start with God, then out of that will flow God even in some of the most tumultuous times! Sometimes I am amazed by the supernatural extension of love, grace, mercy, and patience in some of the most frustrating and aggravating moments. If you depend on Him for this everlasting fountain, He will not fail you. He will guide you in the correct path, but we need to be faithful to walk in the light that He guides our feet with. “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105. Walking in His light produces health and strength. His word is always true, and it says it right there! This means we can take these steps and relax in the knowledge that our heavenly Father will take care of us and give us what we need. He will do this for you and your family, your children. Just take a moment today and ask Him.

               Take a moment and think about the tension in your life. Do you need to throw up a yellow light and proceed with caution in areas? Take it to God, He is there for you. Surround yourself with His word and His promises. Surround yourself with those that can pray for you and with you. Tune in next week where we will be learning more about tension and how to make the best of it when it arises. 

Traipsing Through 2022

“In life we can be surrounded by tension. We try to avoid it, fix it, and remove it. But what if the tension in life is actually key to life? Tension can create beautiful harmony. It keeps us from falling flat and tunes us to the heart of God. It’s time to embrace the truth about tension.”

              What is tension? Tension is defined as the state of being stretched tight or mental and emotional strain. What tensions are you feeling today? Are you stressed because of finances, being a perfect parent, finding your true love, or landing that big job? Are you waiting to see what new disasters may be brought on 2022? We are walking on eggshells as year after year, especially for the last couple of years, things generally have not been good as a nation. As parents, we are worn out, exhausted, from all the new barriers we face and the things we must educate our children about. I’m reminded of a meme that went viral claiming that suicide rates had gone up due to the pandemic. The truth is, the study found that suicide rates had decreased, probably due to the new ways (like text) that are available for outreach! The alarming part as a parent, is that the suicide rates shifted showing an increase in suicide rates among children. This can cause some tension. As a parent we want a picture-perfect childhood for our kids. This tension early on can cause one of two things, a closer walk with God or going in the other direction. Salvation isn’t a one and done type of thing, afterwards there is a journey with God. The road of sanctification. Sanctification is a theological word that describes our spiritual journey and growth. We can all admit that there are times when we have strayed from God since accepting Him into our hearts. During the tension as children, through these difficult times it is up to us as parents to work hard and continuously plant the seeds in them. Plant the word of God so that they have it as reference any time they need it. “But whatever I am not, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me – and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace.” 1 Corinthians 15:10 (NLT). We must do work, do His work in our children, through the grace that He has poured out on us. We must as parents support our kids, love them through the process and let God do his work as well. There is a tension between what we must do and when God takes over. Paul was referencing both his works and His works, noting the difference between the two but that both must coincide with each other to create a balance. So what is our part in this, individually and as parents? Well, we must “stay away from every kind of evil. Now may the God peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.” 1 Thessalonians 5:22-24 (NLT). We aren’t perfect but we can make choices to stay on the right path. Change the radio station to Klove or Air1. This puts the word of God in their head on a daily basis as long as you are able to control it. Let’s be honest, a lot of children listen to junk when they aren’t around their parents. I’m sure that’s not Christian music being blasted when a teen is in a mood. If you don’t want to listen to that, try turning the radio off. I’ve had some wonderful, deep, and meaningful conversations with my children just riding down the road…as teenagers even! Another choice we can make is in what we watch. Don’t get me wrong, raising kids, I had my own tv shows I liked to watch. An occasional junk tv show might briefly pique my curiosity, but not around my kids. I’ll be honest, it was not always the most fun tv we could watch, but I was choosing not to expose them to the sexual nature and sailor mouths that are available on tv now.  Making choices to reinforce our sanctification and keeping ourselves holy will spill out into our children. Again, our sanctification is a journey, and so will theirs be. We must seek to support, love, and provide the Gospel. We are going to look more at tension in the coming weeks. Ways to identify the tension, challenge the tension, and turn it around for good! Stay safe and warm out there!

CEF Materials

  I know we have bragged to you and hinted to you about these great CEF materials that we have and utilize throughout parts of our ministry. Common references to tracts and gospel tools can leave some people scratching their head. Today I figured I would take some time and highlight a few of our CEF tried and true materials. Some of them have been around and stood the test of time. Other materials are new productions as we strive to keep up with the times and current issues.

              Our curriculum has been around for a long time. We have series based around certain topics like Salvation, Beginnings, Reigning and Sovereignty. These all have different lessons included in the lesson series such as God : The Creator King, Jesus : God Who Saves, Jesus : God of Power and Glory, and Jesus : God Who Cares For People. These lessons are presented each week and there are plans for parties included in the lesson series curriculum. These lessons include a Gospel presentation, Wonder Time, music, memory verse, small group suggestions, and so much more! The lessons are broken down into smaller digestible chunks for the leaders. This makes it more effective for the leaders and a smoother presentation for the children.

              The word tracts may leave some scratching their head or some waving you away. You may be used to those outdated little flyers that are unappealing, but these are so much better! CEF tracts touch on real world issues and current titles. One of their most recent publications talks about the recent pandemic and how that relates to Jesus. We have tracts for “seasoned Christians”, such as a Mini Bible Guide you can put in your bible that gives references to certain topics. We have seasonal topics and Spanish titles as well!

              CEF Press has put out a few outstanding devotionals! These range from What a God, Let’s Talk about God, Standing for God, and a few others. We even have titles in Spanish! These devotional booklets seek to talk to children, on their level, about Jesus and making good choices. This includes 60 days of a short Bible passage and a short devotional on a variety of topics aimed at creating a deeper relationship with God. These are all newer publications from CEF.

              These are just a few of the tools that we are equipped with. If you are interested in any, please contact our local office at 336-645-8877. We look forward to sharing more on these tools in the future!

2022 And Covid

Well, with a new year comes all sorts of things; new hopes, new ideas, new dreams, and new adventures. People make New Year’s Resolutions hoping and dreaming of change. Some people choose to fast, giving up something or creating new paths for growth. Right now there are many people starting down this road of adventure.   We see this not only happen in individuals, but also in churches and nonprofits.   Church attendance and nonprofit involvement increases for a period of time, but isn’t sustainable throughout the year. In some cases we see decline or the fall of some churches as they can not keep up with the times and tithing can’t keep the lights on. We see this in our labor shortages. With the influx of wages comes new people setting out for new jobs with higher rates, leaving behind the “grunt work” unfilled as wait times for products and customer service all lag behind. Our finances all hit some ups and downs the last couple of years when people were out of work due to the shut down and essential workers were burned out from being overworked. The stimulus payments left some people with savings while some burned a hole in their pocket. The last few years have really left us waiting on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop. What disasters could 2022 bring? We enter 2022 with a new wave of the coronavirus sweeping the nation. Children scared and worried, who will save us from danger? Is the coronavirus the worst danger we are facing or is there a more dangerous problem?

              When everyone around us speaks about the danger of the coronavirus, it is natural to feel afraid. Everything for the last few years has just been getting worse, to the point of separating us from our friends and family. We also have a lot of questions and not knowing the answers can cause us fear. Has God stopped loving us? Is God angry with us? Did I get sick because I am bad? Is this the end of the world? It is never wrong to ask questions, BUT we should always go to the Bible to get our answers. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world” – ALL of the world, and all means ALL! All the people no matter what language, race, gender, poverty level, or side of town you grew up on. God loves every one of us because He created us. Even though the coronavirus separates us from the people we love, sin is much worse because it separates us from God! When you disobey your parents, hit your sibling, lie, steal, or even think about doing something wrong, it is a sin. Everyone has sinned. The Bible says, “No one is righteous”. Sin separates you from being with God in Heaven someday and being His friend right now.

              There is a solution!! Doctors are working to create vaccines and medicine to help fight the virus. It isn’t your fault if you get the virus, but you were born with the sin problem. God has already given us the only cure for our sin and that is Jesus Christ. When Jesus lived on earth He was human, with a human body and emotions and thoughts. While on earth He cured many diseases, performed miracles, and taught about the heart of God. In the end, the reason He came to earth was to make a way for us to be forgiven of our sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be nailed to a cross, where He bled and died for our sin. He died, was buried and came alive again on the third day. He is now in Heaven preparing a place for believers. You can clean your hands with soap and water, sanitizer too, to try to help stop the virus. You can know for sure that Jesus cleans you from sin when you believe (trust) in Him. “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved”, Acts 16:31. Doctors give lots of advice so people can stay healthy. God also gives advice in His Word, the Bible. When you believe in Jesus, you should get to know Him better. You can do this by reading and obeying the Bible. You can talk to God in prayer anytime about your thoughts, feelings, people you love, school, and so many things! He hears you and He loves you. Remember, do not be afraid, take everything to Him, and He is with you always even though you can’t see Him.

2022, Oh The Wonderful Things We’ll Do!

So many people are looking to make New Years resolutions in the hopes that they can change something about themselves. Some things are small, like to be nicer or spend more time with family. Some things are a bit more challenging like losing weight or setting aside money for savings. I think that is the wonderful thing about Child Evangelism Fellowship. Our mission is the same but so applicable from year to year. The idea of reaching Every Child, Every Nation, Every Day is a lofty one. A vision that has gotten us through almost 85 years of struggles and joy. Here are a few key programs that help us reach the generations of children that God wants to pour out His love on.

               CYIA, or Christian Youth In Action, is a program for high schoolers and middle schoolers who seek to share the Gospel in tangible ways. The program walks through the Gospel, teaching them who Jesus is. The curriculum also teaches them how to share the Gospel and walks them through how to help someone with their profession of faith in Jesus Christ. CYIA camp is offered for those that would like to attend. They can also be active within a local Good News Club and other CEF events in the community. Most come from the local churches.

               GNC, or Good News Clubs, are clubs that take place typically in local schools but also can be found in local YMCAs and other places where children safely gather and is geared for elementary children. There is a Bible lesson, Gospel Presentation, an invitation and other fun activities, games and songs. These are also staffed by volunteers of local churches and are a safe place where children can learn about Jesus and be in community with other believers. This is a safe place for all children to feel the love of the Lord and to plant the seed of who He is.

               5 Day Clubs are exactly that, they are 5-day long clubs for approximately 1 and ½ hours in length that take place wherever children can safely gather aimed towards elementary aged children. These clubs operate like a Vacation Bible School. They offer Bible lessons, songs, games, and fun activities. All of this while learning about God from volunteers who love to show how God loves each of us. These clubs offer all the benefits of a once weekly club spread out into a week long club for children. It does include the opportunity to confess their need for Jesus and accept Him as their Lord and Savior.

               These are just a few ways that 85 years of experience and excellence can spawn a love for Jesus in generations going forward. We look forward to all of the ways that we can partner with YOU and your church to impact children all over Guilford and Rockingham Counties! If you are interested, please let us know by visiting https://cefgga.org/contact-us/ ! We pray for many blessings for you and your family this upcoming year! See you next year!

New Great News!

Well hello there! It’s so good to be back on a normal schedule again! With Thanksgiving and then #GivingTuesday, things have been a little different than normal. Please know that we are praying for you this holiday season, prayers of wisdom about the reason for the season and prayers of endurance through what could be for some, a rough holiday season. We are so glad that you take a little part of you time to spend with us by reading our blog! Today we wanted to talk about some exciting news!!! God is on the move!

               Guilford County School District has been shut down to all outside groups for a long time now. We have been holding good numbers and percentages for a while. Guilford County has continued loosening their protocols and safety guidelines for the schools. I was attending my daughter’s concert last night and they said it had been over 700 days since their last concert. Their next concert had been scheduled for the day that schools shut down. They even did a nod to those days by performing the pieces they were scheduled to perform. It just shows you the resilience of these children, the tough times they have had to endure, and a jump start into brighter things that lay ahead.

               And then there was this email…a vague sentence that some caught, “GCS would be renewing their facilities use contracts in January”. Wow! What a huge step! But was this the open door for us? After some clarification and double checking…YES!! Guilford County Schools are going to allow us back in! Now it is just a matter of meeting with principals and churches, getting volunteers lined up and some training for the new people. Not only do we look forward to beginning our clubs again in the already established 6 schools, we look forward to working with some new schools. We have a few that are ready to go and was just waiting on this decision to step into what God is planning for these children. We will keep you posted on new opportunities as they arise!

               So what does this mean for you? Well, there are a couple of things that could apply. Do you have an hour to 2 a week free that you could spend working with children in a Good News Club? Do you have time to gather snacks and get them prepared and dropped of to a GNC? Do you want to take the next step in volunteering for a GNC? Head on over to our website at https://cefgga.org/2017/10/16/goodnewsclubopportunities/ and fill out some information to let us know! Do you have time during the summer to participate in a 5 Day Club? What about prayer? Are you a strong prayer warrior? Visit us at https://cefgga.org/fueled-by-prayer/ to join our prayer team! Could you donate? Even $10 a month would support a club’s curriculum. Head  over to https://cefgga.org/donate-2/ to donate. We look forward to sharing new updates and going over these different opportunities to partner with us! We will return after Christmas but before the new year. Please have a blessed Christmas and know that we will be praying for you!
