Good News Club
A 2001 Supreme Court ruling allowed Good News Clubs access to public facilities after school hours. The Good News Club is a fun, evangelistic club for boys and girls ages 5 through 12 that meet immediately after school. Bethel Baptist Church “adopted” Fair Oak Elementary and provides the personnel needed to conduct the clubs. To find out how you can serve or more information about the Good News Club at your child’s school, please call the CEF office at 864-292-5842 or email B.J. Bateman, District Director.
