ADAPTED SUMMER MINISTRIES FOR 2020
Just because it's different doesn't mean it's cancelled!
With the unique situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, CEF of Tioga County will not put on our traditional Good News Day Camps for the Summer of 2020. But that's not stopping our ministry! We know that children still need wholesome, fun, and interactive summer activities, and we want to use those activities to show them God's truth and love.
Read on to find out how we're adapting this summer's ministries through 5-Day Clubs, Mini-camps, and Partnered Church Outreaches. Interested in being involved in any of the above? Contact us today!
5-Day Clubs are a traditional part of CEF summer ministries, but they are especially relevant this year. Since 5-Day Clubs typically have smaller groups of children (5-15) in a localized area, they are a safer way to bring children together during this time. We'll still include the tried and true games and songs, as well as 5 days of an exciting missionary story and solid Bible Lessons on the story of Jonah. For more information on what a 5-Day Club looks like, visit our SUMMER MISSIONARIES page.
Please contact us if you would like to host a 5-Day Club at your home or if you would like information on what 5-Day Clubs will be in your area this summer.
New this year, Mini-Camps are an extended 5-Day Club. With an extra hour or two of games, crafts, and other activities, Mini-Camps are our way of putting the fun of our Good News Day Camps into a smaller, more localized environment. These Mini-Camps will be hosted with the help of churches, similar to a Vacation Bible School, and be held in the afternoon. We will not be providing transportation, but there is no cost for children to attend.
Please contact us if you are interested in getting your church involved with hosting a Mini-Camp or if you would like your child to attend a Mini-Camp in your area.
As always, we want to come alongside churches to help with their ministries. If you are still preparing for your church's summer ministry and need assistance, we have trained staff willing to come to your VBS or other children or family event and help teach Bible lessons or missionary stories and lead small group games and activities similar to our 5-Day Clubs.
Please contact us to let us know how we can partner with your church's ministry this summer.
Partnered Church Events!
As our ministry continues to adapt and change, we need your prayers and support, through both donations and volunteers. Please pray about how you can be a part of our summer ministry during this time.
