CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF IDAHO
Since 1937, Good News Club© has been working with churches and schools to provide a a nurturing, welcoming, privately-sponsored after-school enrichment club! This includes stories, songs, games, and special projects. It provides training in morals, character, leadership and citizenship from a Biblical perspective, through fun activities. All children are welcome, regardless of religious belief, and may only attend with parental permission. Attendance is free, and no donations are solicited.
Sometimes questions arise about the club’s legality in light of its Biblical basis and Christian viewpoint. On June 11, 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it was legal for public schools to allow CEF® to provide the Good News Club as a means of after-school, Biblically-based, character instruction for public school students. The ruling stated that Bible clubs must be given the same access to school facilities accorded to any other non-school related outside group.
Since GNC® is a youth-centered, non-profit organization, not affiliated with any church or denomination, and charges no admission fees, we are typically welcomed to use the facilities with no usage fees.
