Welcome

Good News Club Day Out

Monday, February 15 is President's Day.  The schools are closed.  Let your children spend the day with us at our annual Day Out.  8:00 am - 5:00 pm at Central Free Methodist Church in Lansing.  Go to "more", the "downloads" to download the permission slip/flyer.

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.


"Call unto me and I will answer thee and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not."  Jeremiah 33:3

I am so thankful that we can call to God, who already knows the need, and who already has the answer. 
Thank you for your ministry of prayer for CEF and for the children.
Praise the Lord with us:
