Tehachapi Good News Club


The First Annual Tehachapi Good News Club Family Picnic was held May 21 at Meadow Brook Park. Approximately 70 children, parents, grandparents and club volunteers attended. There was food, games and making of new friends.

This school year, 132 children were registered to attend Tehachapi's Good News Clubs and 20 adults from seven local churches volunteered every week. The clubs were held after school at Tompkins, Golden Hills and Cummings Valley Elementary, and bus stops at the Whiting Center and Village at Tehachapi Apartments. Good News Clubs are not a TUSD activity, but are allowed under the Constitution and Supreme Court decision of 2001 to have equal access to public schools as an after school program.

Good News Clubs are for all children 6-12 years old. The weekly after school club is 1- 1 1/2 hours long. It consists of a Bible lesson and verse, songs, games, snacks and laughter. The children are provided opportunities to put their trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and be empowered by God's Word and Spirit to live a life that pleases God. The past two years we had a float in the Tehachapi Christmas Parade and hope to have our first float in the Mountain Festival this year.

BVS Whiting Center Good News Club will begin its summer program on Thursday, June 15. All other clubs will resume after Labor Day. If you would like information on starting a club at your child's bus stop or your home, contact Kathy Flynn 823-1950.
