Praise God for a successful summer of Good News Clubs and more children entrusting their lives to the Lord! We are now planning Fall Good News Clubs!

Thank you to all who prayed for our Soccer 5-Day Club! Several children put their trust in the Lord, and all learned and had a super fun time playing soccer!! The Lord provided all the volunteers that were needed… some at the last minute, but they were there and they served well!
Our CEF Soccer Club is coming up July 12-16 from 9am to Noon at the Goleta Valley Community Center. We have over 60 kids signed up, ready to learn about our Lord and play soccer! We still need many adult and teen counselors to lead small groups of children as they rotate through their activities! You do not need to play soccer to volunteer!
