Children's Ministries:

5-Day Club®

What is a 5-Day Club®?

For five consecutive days, one and a half hours each day, children enjoy hearing Bible stories, sing songs, learn Bible verses, listen to a missionary story, and hear the Gospel clearly presented. They are engaged in learning through games and high octane activities.

5-Day Club gives elementary aged children a great place to spend one week of their summer.

5-Day Clubs are hosted by a Christian neighbor who gathers the children together at a location that is easily accessible.  Daycare and community centers, backyards, parks, and schools are ideal locations for club.

Do you see a need to evangelize your community? Do you have a burden to reach spiritually lost boys and girls?  Then why not you?  Your willingness could be a child's blessing for life.

How can I help?

The CEF training team can equip you with the knowledge and materials to:

  • Host a club - identify locations suitable for meeting and gather the children in your neighborhood
  • Teach a club - many of our workers are high school and college age students who have been trained to lead 5-Day Club. Click here to meet the 2017 Summer Missionary team and read their comments about why they want to serve.
  • Help a teacher - larger clubs could use more hands to build relationships with the children and families
  • Pray for a club - whether in your neighborhood or another where you have a concern
  • Donations are also accepted by CEF to help with the cost of the program since the children attend free of charge

If you'd like to know more about volunteering or praying for a club, contact us for more information.

What materials will I use?

5-Day Club kits available from CEF Press® provide all the necessary materials. Kits include:

  • Bible lesson book
  • Visualized verses
  • Teaching cards
  • Missionary story
  • Helps in leading a child to Christ
  • Visualized theme song and other song visuals
  • Reproducible verse tokens

Where are clubs held? 

You will work in your own community under the supervision of the local CEF Director. Your church may help find homes or other suitable locations. Each child attending is enrolled in the club and his/her name is given to a local church for follow-up.

How can my church participate?

Churches in the area are taking advantage of 5-Day Club to reach their community. "VBS On the Road" involves the whole church in reaching the families through outreach to the children. The church chooses a week and identifies three locations for the clubs. CEF trains the workers to run the program. New families are introduced to the church through a rally at the end of the week.
