Our guest speaker, Brian Pipping, gave a wonderful message on the work of CEF over the 81 years of its history, as well as the impact CEF has had on his own life as well as in his wife Diane's life.  An opportunity was then given for those attending to partner with us to help us reach more children with the Gospel of Christ through volunteering and/or sharing out of the financial resources with which God has blessed them.

CEF was blessed with the result.  However, we continue to ask for sustaining gifts through the year to keep us on track to expand our ministry and to run our race with excellence!  Thank you to all who attended!

 

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!
