Key MBS Partner Needs Help

| August 27, 2015

Child's hands are on the open bookMaryland Bible Society (MBS) and Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) are joining together to take advantage of a rare opportunity to bring Good News Clubs into public elementary schools.

The schools are interested in having clubs because of the many benefits they bring to students and the school culture overall.  Our interest and urgency is to bring Christ to unchurched children. MBS is committed to provide a Bible to each child as they come to the Lord. Will you volunteer to help?

As a team member you will be able to introduce the children to their heavenly Father who loves them and cares about their lives.  For only 90 minutes a week during the school year, your impact will be amazing. All we need are enough Christians to walk through the open doors and and transformations will unfold. The need is great. Pastors, you could not ask for a greater time to step up.

This Is A Call To Action!!!! — Attention all Christians and Pastors:

Bible education in public elementary schools?  Did you think you would ever see this? Have you wanted to reach out on a short term basis to radically change children’s lives?  Are you a person who likes quick results?  Do you have 90 minutes a week from October to May? If you do, then Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) has just the thing for you.   It is a rare opportunity and a precious gift from our Lord to give us an open door to accomplish so much for doing so little.

There are families and teachers in the public elementary schools in Baltimore who, once aware of this program, want Christians to bring Christ and the Good News Clubs to their school.  They are asking because they know the measures they have tried, failed. Jesus does not fail. For the investment of 90 minutes once a week you will literally transform a school’s environment…you will bring children to Christ and in the process change the schools and their overall success!

Listen to the remarks of Cathy Gantz, past president of the Baltimore County Principals Association when she saw what one Good News Club accomplished in her school, “We are so glad to have a co-ed club here at the school…(we) are seeing the gender gap in reading, math and science finally closing…our suspension rate has dropped from 11.5% to 2% and grades overall improved.  The Good News Club has brought peace to our school”.

If this interests you, the teams are now forming for this coming school year.  At various times in the school year, CEF offers excellent training to fully prepare you for this work.  In addition to a one day seminar, your team will receive additional instruction in a three-hour workshop regarding procedures for ministry in a public school setting as well as how to use the curriculum. All the materials you need will be available, even the Bibles for the children. There are many ways to serve on these teams.  Maryland Bible Society is committed to the children. Will you walk with us?

And Pastors, you have a unique role to play. We are asking your church to adopt a school and raise up a team of five to eight people. We’re asking you to even join with another church if needed in order to put a team together. We pray you will participate. The churches are critical.  These children and their families will need a church to attend. The churches are the mainstay of this effort.

If you want to share in blessing God’s children, please call Child Evangelism Fellowship at (410) 944-6435 or email Martha Wright at

You and your church have a unique opportunity to impact your community with the Gospel. We pray the Spirit will stir hearts to participate and effect a change for God. MBS can be contacted at 410-685-4040 or

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
