Good News Club Program
This is a small group of Bible Study program for children of ages 3 to 11, their motto being “To trust and obey the Good News-building myself and others.”. The program aims to teach the word of God in an expository way with the use of drama, discussion, illustrations and participatory activities. Currently the GNC curriculum for this program is provided by One Hope (Stories of Hope), & Child Evangelism Fellowship. CCP holds GNC classes each with 10 – 50 students and 2 volunteer teachers, with the classes meeting for two hours once a week at 4 different venues within the Kawangware and Ngando communities.
Youth and Preteen’s Service aims to provide the group with a place for fellowship. The goal is to evangelize, challenge, nurture and train the Pre-Teens to serve Christ. It grows them spiritually by providing an opportunity for them to serve God using their God-given talents and gifts. It also helps them become effective in their Christian service. The Youth Program is a program that reaches out to the youths holistically.
The service targets young people from 12 years (6th grade) and above. Currently CCP has a pre-teen & youth estimating 200 in number. The group meets once every Saturday from 2pm to 4:30pm at CCP’s at the same venues as the GNC and are currently using curriculum from Biblica (Reach4Life).
Vocational Bible School
Vacation Bible School is an outreach event that aims at teaching children Biblical truths through a series of songs, crafts, games and topical lessons. Each VBS and all associated activities are constructed around a Biblical theme. This event runs for one week, Monday through Friday during the holiday months of April and August where activities take place from 8am to 12pm for children and from 1:30pm to 4:30pm for youth. This event caters for children and youth of ages 3 to 18 years and is open to the community members. The program targets 400 children and preteens and 350 youth.
The purpose of the Discipleship program is to equip the born-again children, pre-teens and guardians with the word of God so as to help them to grow in their spiritual lives and subsequently help those around them. The program is conducted in two ways one through group discipleship and the other through the one on one. The guardian’s program is conducted through the support group once every month per support group and targets the non-readers.
The program takes nine months and is facilitated by the social workers and guardians who have successfully completed the training. One person can only disciple two people within the suggested period. A Bible is also given to each guardian being discipled. Once a guardian finishes the course, he/she is also expected to disciple two people of his/her choice. A meeting lasts for 2 hours once every week and a social worker or guardian must understand the Harvest ministries curriculum before using it. Discipleship takes place at the client’s home.
This is sharing the gospel of Christ with the Sponsorship families. It is done quarterly during guardians’ Evangelistic meetings, monthly during support groups’ evangelistic Bible studies, and during home visits by the social workers and spiritual staff. The children are evangelized in the Goods News clubs.
Guest speakers are invited to the Evangelistic meetings. Staff training for Sponsorship and Spiritual Ministries is done to help them facilitate Evangelistic Bible studies in Good News Clubs, support groups and sharing the gospel during home visits.
This program aims at helping a new believer to be sure of his/her salvation, attain the level of self-feeding and be established in the faith before they join the Discipleship program. The program is done through group discussions and one on one basis. The program takes six weeks (once every week) and every follow-up session lasts for 1 hour. The program uses a curriculum developed by CCP’s Spiritual department.
