Good News Clubs begin at elementary schools

Two Good News Clubs are starting in the south county at Cottage Hill (Tuesdays) and Pleasant Ridge (Wednesdays) meetings weekly, beginning the first week in December and continuing into the new year.

A GNC is a Bible club for elementary-age children that is conducted immediately after school in a school’s classroom or library.

At Cottage Hill, the club will meet in the school’s library; and at Pleasant Ridge, the club will meet in the fifth-grade classroom, Room 12.

A third GNC will start at Williams Ranch School in Penn Valley each Thursday, starting either in December or early January, in the pre-school’s Room 15.

The GNC is a parent-sponsored, developmental experience for children from a Biblical perspective. Permission slips may be picked up by parents at Holiday markets and Pleasant Valley Pharmacy or during club meetings.

Meetings last an hour and, if a child attends 4-H Childcare, he or she will be returned to the care site at the end of the meeting.

The GNC program was developed by Child Evangelism Fellowship, which screens club teachers through its child protection policy. CEF is 65 years old and has clubs in all 50 states and in 153 foreign countries. For more information, call Robert Gliebe at 268-1473.
