Connect with a school
There are 900 public elementary schools in Maryland and Good News Clubs are established in over 100 and growing! New clubs are continually opening. We are calling all Bible-believing churches across the state to step up to the plate and adopt their community school while the doors are still open!
Smaller churches are connecting with other churches to adopt a school. Groups of individuals can also adopt one! There is much work yet to be done to take the Gospel to every elementary school in Maryland!
How to adopt a school
Enlist a prayer team and begin to pray for the school you would like to adopt.
Invite a CEF representative to make a 15 minute presentation to your congregation to cast the vision
Recruit a team of between five and eight people who will be involved in the Good News Club ministry.

Complete CEF’s Child Protection screening/sign Statement of Faith/
Doctrinal Protection Policy/Worker’s Compliance Agreement.
Sign the Church Partnership Agreement with CEF.
Work with CEF to set up an appointment with the principal of the chosen elementary school and to submit all necessary paperwork
Begin your Good News Club ministry when permission is granted. Reach children and families with the Gospel!
