top-orchard-knob-schoolBringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to neighborhood children

Children from the neighborhoods in the Orchard Knob Elementary School (OKES) school zone need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Many of them will benefit from the consistent (week after week) presence of dedicated Christian adults (and possibly teens who participate) as role models.  We have a need to be sharing the gospel and investing our lives in those around us. “The Good News Club” is a national initiative to bring the gospel to children.

The school has expressed a sincere openness for the local church to undergird the children/families in the school and provide a strong, wholesome influence for the children, as the faculty and administration seek to help children rise above expectations and break negative cycles in their community.  The Good News Club is an established, legally validated program that is allowed to take place inside the school property on a weekly basis, and has recently begun at OKES.  The nationwide and local model entails a local church “adopting” each school to run its club program.  The club is evangelistic in nature, and provides education about key Bible teachings and stories.

Focus to bring the gospel to children. (Our involvement in Kids Hope USA is focused on mentoring children at Orchard Knob.)
