Statement of Faith

Policy on "speaking in tongues"

     Good News Clubs meet in the neighborhood where children live. We want to make it easy and convenient for them to attend. They meet most often in the friendly atmosphere of a home. This home can serve as a link between the church and the child's home, bringing the good news right to where the child lives.

     Christians who are concerned for boys and girls work together volunteering their time and energy to teach Good News Clubs. They are trained by Child Evangelism Fellowship of Eastern PA to have a club that is exciting and informative so that children will want to keep coming. Teachers are asked to sign the our Statement of Faith and agree to abide by the policies of the organization (CEF of E. PA is non-charismatic).  

      A Good News Club can identify a home in the neighborhood that is safe for a child to go to in time of trouble. It brings the teaching of biblical morality to his neighborhood. It connects the child and his family to others where they live developing a good community spirit.

There may be a Good News Club in your neighborhood, or YOU could host a club!

     Released time class for children in grades 1-6: You won't want to miss this! Students must have parental permission to participate. These classes are usually held in a church or public building near the school. The children are transported by bus or van. They are accompanied to the classes by a teacher or helper of the Released-Time Class.

     These classes are not sponsored by school districts but by C
HILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PA, INC. The children hear a Bible lesson, sing gospel songs and choruses, learn a Bible memory verse and learn about mission.

     Teacher Training Classes are held during the months of September through April. Classes are generally the second Tuesday of each month and run from 10am - noonish. Material covered in each class will differ, however each class will include material for CEF volunteers who are teaching and/or helping at Released Time Classes and Good News Clubs.

     Each class will also include material valuable to any person who works with children (parents, grandparents, church volunteers, VBS workers...)
