Change a Life for Jesus
What's in a Good News Club?
Good News Clubs are dedicated to bringing the Gospel to children in a way and at a level they can understand. The program consists of a Bible Lesson, memory verse, games, missionary stories, Bible rich songs, and often small groups.
Each week, the children are given the chance to receive Jesus as their Savior.
Good News Clubs are one day a week directly after school, and last 1.5 hours. For the full list of schools and their start times, click below:
There are several roles to be filled in a Good News Club. Each team works together to make sure the needs are covered at club. The roles of a club include, but are not limited to:
- Club Leader
- Small Group Leader (each club may have 2 – 6 small groups)
- Bible Lesson Teacher
- Memory Verse Teacher
- Registration Manager

When a volunteer is placed in a club, the team leader helps delegate roles based on the needs of the club and abilities of the team.
