2017 Summer Ministry Update!


 Off to a Running Start!




2017 club-1



Summer Missionaries Jessalynn and A.J. have done a wonderful job in their first week of 5-Day Club ministry, teaching at 3 different clubs where 57 children attended over the week!  God blessed the ministry in that we had rain only on one day at one of the clubs.  Even more encouraging was that 8 of the children expressed their decision to want to follow Jesus Christ as their Savior from sin!


Please continue to pray for our summer ministry.  The week of July 10-14 two clubs are scheduled, followed by one club each week of July 17-21 and 24-28, and possibly two again during July 31-Aug 4.


The CEF board members will be busy sharing the Gospel at the LaPorte County Fair starting July 9th.  We will also be at Jasper county Fair from July 15-21st, Porter County Fair July 20-29, and at Lake County Fair August 4-13th.

Many thanks go out to Joe Swisher and John Bennett on our local board, for seeing to all the details of getting this work done! Mark and Brenda Kampenga got the work started with a generous donation toward the costs for this work. Generous help was also given by Gabi and Cornel Stef toward the cost, and in shopping out the awning material and advising on the new decals applied.

We are looking to many more years of service from our Good News Clubhouse with this work now done!

  2016 Ministry Banquet & Concert at Liberty Bible Church, Chesterton!

 What an inspiring and "filling" event!

   The Liberty Bible Church orchestra donated their time and talents for an evening of wonderful worship of our Lord and Savior following a delicious lasagna dinner planned and prepared by the local board of directors of CEF in Northwest Indiana.

     If you missed it, you missed out on good food, good fellowship, good worship, and hearing about  the good work being done by many volunteers teaching in the Good News Club ministry in the 10 elementary schools around our chapter area.  304 students have attended the different Good News Clubs this year, with 78 seeking spiritual counsel, and 25 having expressed their decision to trust in Christ as Savior.  We saw an increase of over 20% attendance in Good News Clubs this year.  As we continue to work toward our goal of increasing our Good News Club ministry by 20 clubs by the year 2020, we pray for many more volunteers and that God will open many more doors into the schools in our area.
