Children are the least reached people group, yet the most likely to impact the world for Jesus. Luis Palau once said, “If you reach an adult you save a life, but if you reach a Child you save a whole family”. CEF NorCal is unique in that our only focus is Children. Our Goal is to give every Child in Northern California the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. Join with us as we try to unite all of Jesus’ followers to help serve the Children.
There are so many ways to serve the Children. We need people who love Jesus and are willing to share their gifts in an effort to reach more boys and girls. Please consider applying to become a hands on missionary, a teacher, someone who helps support a local club, and/or a committee or board member. This mission is important and to see it through we need people like you to join in!
But these dear boys and girls--there is, something to be made out of them. If now they yield themselves to Christ they may have a long, happy, and holy day before them in which they may serve God with all then hearts. Who knows what glory God may have of them? Heathen lands may call them blessed. Whole nations may be enlightened by them. O brethren and sisters, let us estimate children at their true valuation, and we shall not keep them back, but we shall be eager to lead them to Jesus at once.
I started to attend Good News Club® in Sioux City, Iowa when I was about four years old. My older brother went, and I liked to go along. I so clearly remember our teacher, dear Mrs. Dora Lock and her helper Betty Ritchie. She had GNC® in the basement of her home. I remember the day she had the lesson on the crucifixion like it was yesterday. She talked about how Jesus died to pay the price for our sins and all we had to do was believe on Him and accept His free gift. I was ready to accept him that day! I attended for several years and the Scripture that I memorized and the songs we sang have stuck with me to this day. I am forever grateful for my time spent in GNC and am loving being part of it again.
If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God.
