Children's Workers Conference

The Children's Workers Conference "Teach N Transform" that was scheduled for Sept. 27 in Howell, MI has been cancelled due to lack of interest.

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 September 15, 2014 

Fall is in the air and that means Good News Clubs.  We are excited that many of our clubs in the Capital Area are starting this week.

Praise God with us:

1.  Our Good News Club Workers Kickoff training class was well attended and went very well.

2.  We have 18 clubs that have started or that will start this week, and 7 more clubs starting next week.

3.  There are 2 young people who taught 5-Day Clubs this past summer who are planning to attend the Guide Retreat at our International Headquarters in Oct.  This is a retreat for people interested in the ministry of CEF and perhaps being more involved with the ministry.

4.  The Southwells were able to give a ministry update in two churches on Sunday.

Please pray for the following:

1. Pray that all the facility use forms for the Good News Clubs in the Lansing schools will be approved today.

2.  Pray for the children that will attend the clubs that begin this week, to have a ready heart to hear God's Word; and for the teachers of the clubs to be well prepared.

3.  Pray for Sarah Coppernoll, our new Good News Club Coordinator, that she will be able to get all the details of all these clubs worked out.

4.  The ceiling in Sean's office is leaking, the pipe that broke in March seems to have another small leak, and the furnace needs new valves.  Funds are needed to pay for these urgent repairs.


Thank you for your prayer support.  You are so appreciated.
