Teaching Children Effectively 1

Teaching Children Effectively 1 begins Saturday, Sept. 26.  Download the flyer and registration form.  Click on "more", "downloads", "TCE1". 

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.

 Prayer and Praise for August 24, 2015

We thank God for bringing us through another week.  Maybe things didn't work out the way you had planned or wanted, but we can always be assured of God's presence in our life.

Praise God with us:

1.  There were 136 children who heard the gospel at the DeWitt Ox Roast this past Fridaynight and Saturday, with 4 children trusting Christ as Savior.  Thank you to the 7 volunteers that shared the gospel, painted faces, and passed out tickets so that boys and girls could hear the gospel.

2.  Marilyn is celebrating her birthday tomorrow.

3.  Sarah received more money for her Children's Ministry Institute costs.

4.  Our summer ministry expenses have been met, almost to the exact amount needed!

Please pray with us:

1.  Continue to pray for Maryann's family.  Her father went home to be with the Lord this past Thursday.

2.  Marilyn's Retirement Open House is Saturday3:00 - 6:00 pm at Calvary Baptist Church on Wood Rd. in Lansing.  Pray for a good turn out to celebrate 39 years of  ministry with CEF.

3.  Sarah still needs about $300 for her CMI costs.

4.  Volunteers are needed on September 8 to help get the newsletter ready to mail.  We have the opportunity to have a CEF booth at a church summit in Lansing that day and Maryann has jury duty that week, so helpers are needed to get the newsletter ready.

5.  Pray for the staff as we prepare for our first Good News Club workers training class; Teaching Children Effectively 1 course; the start of Good News Clubs.

6.  An increased in monthly staff support is needed.

We appreciate you and covet your prayers for this ministry.

Maryann Hammar, Director
