How is your church making the difference in the lives of children and families in your community? Your congregation has the great opportunity to act as the hands and feet of Christ in one of the most neglected missions fields – the children.
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!
With a team of 5-8 people, you and/or your church have an unprecedented opportunity to:
– Evangelize and disciple children
– Make an impact on the next generation for Christ
– Get students and their whole family connected to your local church
– Expand your outreach and youth ministry within your community
– Minister to the families of the children in a variety of ways
Enlist a prayer team and begin to pray for the school you would like to adopt.
