Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
CEF’s mission is to evangelize unchurched children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, disciple them, and establish them in a local church for Christian living. CEF accomplishes this mission through a variety of different ministries during the summer and school year, going to where children are outside of church walls. CEF also offers college-accredited training courses and other training opportunities to equip workers to reach children effectively for Christ.
In our Sunday School, we have been studying the book of Daniel and have been stuck on chapter 7 for several weeks. One of the topics of discussion has been concerning the rapture, the tribulation, and the second coming of Jesus. Whatever your interpretation of end times events is, one thing is for sure: Jesus is returning and the time is short. We want to "redeem the time" and tell as many as we can about the God who saves. There are many children who have never heard of Jesus, God, the Son, and His work on the cross. Thank you for standing with us in prayer as we work to share the Good News with the children.
Praise God with us:
1. Beth is feeling better after struggling with a head cold last week.
2. Funds for the Day Out have been received/promised, thanks to a matching fund challenge from a local church.
3. Five "new" children attended Good News Club at Winans on Thursday.
4. We have 2 5-Day Clubs and 1 VBS already scheduled for this summer.
1. There is room for a few more students for the Teaching Children Effectively 1 course that begins on Saturday.
2. Continue to pray as we plan for the Day Out on February 16.
3. We are beginning to plan for summer ministry. We need wisdom concerning the Fair/Festival ministry. 5-Day Clubs in one of the main ministries of CEF, so those clubs get first priority. With Sean and Wendy gone, we need to determine if we have the man-power to continue with the Shiawassee and Fowelerville Fairs.
4. Sarah begins her last CEF Children's Ministries Institute online class on Sunday.
Have we told you how much we appreciate you praying for us? This ministry would not be possible without your going before the throne of grace to pray for us and the children. THANK YOU!Thank you for praying for the ministry of CEF in the Capital Area.
