Examples of our club materials for children and adults.
School-year clubs called COUNTDOWN CLUBS meet one hour weekly after school in homes, churches, community buildings, schools, etc. The club program is composed of singing, prayer, memory work, missionary story, Bible lesson, counseling time. Contests, quizzes, etc., make the time both fruitful and exciting for the kids.
Several options are available in order to fit the club into the lives of busy people....
6-week Countdown Club - any six-week - fall and/or spring semester
Extended Countdown Club - begins in October and ends in April
(when school is not in session, the club does not usually meet.)
One-time "Party" Countdown Club - (Valentine's Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, other)
Video Countdown Club - building a club around a different video each week, for 6 weeks, or using an extended dramatic video, showing only a segment of the video each week. These clubs always include a Bible lesson.
Summer 5-Day Countdown Clubs meet for one hour a day for 5 consecutive days,
almost like a neighborhood VBS. Almost anyone can clear one week of their
Summer, if they choose to prioritize this kind of outreach, to either teach or
host a club. Again, the club is composed of singing, prayer, memory work, Bible
lesson, missionary stroy, review quizzes, etc. A gospel invitation and time for
counseling is planned each day.
Training for involvement in these club programs is available and detailed under
Young people, usually college-age, receive specialized, and more intensive
training, if they plan to serve for a Summer as a Summer Missionary. Any young
person so hired serves for an extended time of the summer, teaching three and
four Summer 5-Day Countdown Clubs each day. A Summer Missionary receives
remuneration for each club taught plus transportation expenses in driving from
area to area, and club to club.
PRAISE NOTE...In a typical Summer between 600 and 1000 kids are impacted by attending 5-Day Countdown Clubs. Of those attending many profess genuine faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

The Lakeland CEM has two Good News Cabooses which are pressed into full-time service during the late Spring, Summer and early Fall. The cabooses are carpeted, air-conditioned, and equipped with a 25 inch color TV, VCR, remote speakers and amplifier, exterior decorator lighting, etc., and a full set of our Lakeland CEM-produced, evangelistic, dramatic, videos.
The primary purpose of the cabooses is evangelistic outreach...
