Once again we wrap up another year of ministry here at CEF® of the Greater St. Croix Valley. There is the temptation to think, “Same old, same old,” but God is always doing something new in the lives and hearts of His creatures - the men, women and children He created for His own good pleasure.

Our ministry has two seasons, summer 5-Day Clubs with teen training and Good News Clubs with adult training throughout the school year. In the 2017-2018 ministry year we had six Good News Clubs with 149 enrolled, 34 first-time professions of faith and 12 assurances of faith. We held five teacher trainings with over 60 in attendance. There were fifteen 5-Day Clubs taught with 275 enrolled, two first-time professions of faith, one assurance of faith and one Christian dedication. There were 50 volunteers putting in over 1,285 hours to make all this happen!
Last year a new Good News Club® was started in Spring Valley and this year a new one will begin in Luck. It is so exciting to watch the Lord work in giving us new avenues to share the Gospel with children. We also have interest from two churches for teacher trainings in October and November. We plant and/or water the seeds of God’s Word and He alone gives the increase. Thank you Father for the privilege of working alongside You for the furtherance of Your glorious kingdom! ~ Lisa Inlow St Croix Valley Chapter
