Who sponsors the Club?
Good News Club is sponsored by Child Evangelism Fellowship. CEF is an international Christian organization dedicated to helping children apply God’s Word—the Bible—to their lives in practical ways. CEF has sponsored programs in Fargo/Moorhead for nearly 60 years. Some of these programs include:
- Camp Good News®
- 5-Day Clubs®

Most Good News Clubs are co-sponsored by local churches or individuals who share CEF’s passion for the spiritual well-being of your community’s children.

In other words, they will only teach the truths that are considered to be the central, historic teachings of Christianity.
