Christmas Across America Training

Christmas Across America:  Have a Christmas Party for the children in your neighborhood.  The kit is free (restrictions apply).  Training is available:  Saturday, Nov. 12, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm, Faith Bible Church, 5211 W. St. Joe Hwy, Lansing, MI 48917

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.

 Luke 18:1 "And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;"

Jesus then goes on to tell the parable of the persistent widow.  He responds, "And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?"

Jesus hears our prayers and will answer.  He calls us to be faithful.

Thank you for being faithful to pray for CEF and for the children.

Praise God with us:
1.  Three children trusted Christ as Savior in a Good News Club last week.
2.  Beth G was able to give Wordless Book training to four more teens at her church.
