3000 @ $5 a month

Pray for me, "My mommy & daddy are fighting", "I cut", "My brother is in a gang and I am scared", "I can't stop thinking about suicide", "Help me forgive the man who raped me".  These are just a small sample of the prayer request we receive from kids K-7 in the public schools.  

Kids for Christ USA is growing like crazy, lives are being changed and doors are being opened all across the USA. For those who don't know us well, we assist parents and students who wish to sponsor before/after school Bible clubs in the public schools. $5 a month from 3000 people in the KFCUSA group and email list would do so so much. Click here to join.

There has never been a greater need to reach the children in the schools of this nation than there is now. When calls come in from across the country we can only go to the ones who are able to pay the expenses. This is because KFCUSA doesn't have a "travel budget".

We/I need to hire and administrator and a local director, there are new opportunities for the radio show, sound equipment is wearing out and the list goes on and on. Please join us in reaching a new generation of Kids for Christ.  



Equal Access Victories Across the Land

The following is a report from Liberty Council and some of the 
victories they have been seeing across the USA with regard to
Bible clubs and "Equal Access" in general.  We are posting this
story because we feel it is important to inform those who come
to our website of good reports wherever the may be.  All of
these stories are about another organization: Child Evangelism
Fellowship and their afternoon Bible club programs called "Good
News Clubs".  

"I feel it imperative to explain to people that although the stories
being told here are legal victories.  VERY RARELY is legal action needed to get a club
launched", says Kids for Christ USA founder Bob Heath.  "In fact in nearly nine years of
KFCUSA's existence we have only come close to legal action once".  In his book "How Are
You Doing That"? Heath encourages parents and students who wish to sponsor clubs not
have a "martyrs mentality" when approaching school administrations about launching you
club. "Quiet confidence that federal law is in your corner".  

With that said please read this very important victory report :

Christian Clubs Gain Equal Access to Public Schools

Victories reported in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Temecula, and Valencia,
California, as well as Boise, Idaho

ORLANDO, FL (Christian Newswire) -- Liberty Counsel has recently cleared the way
for numerous Good News Clubs to use public school facilities for after-school programs.
The Clubs, sponsored by Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), are designed to teach good
character and Christian values to children ages 5-12. Supreme Court precedent requires
that schools grant CEF the same access to school facilities as is granted to secular after-
school programs. Liberty Counsel litigates when schools discriminate against CEF. Below
are a few recent victories:

Los Angeles, California

Three schools within the Los Angeles Unified School District were blocking CEF clubs from
meeting, with some even admitting that it was because CEF was religious. After pointing
out such exclusion was against the district's own policy, California law, and the U.S.
Constitution, the district smoothed out its approval procedure and cleared the way for three
new clubs to start meeting at area schools. Liberty Counsel is no stranger to LAUSD. In 2003,
Liberty Counsel entered into a court-approved settlement requiring the LAUSD to give equal
access to the Christian Club free of charge and to pay the attorney's fees and costs for litigating
this matter.

Palm Springs, California

After years of meeting in schools within the Palm Springs Unified School District, CEF was
told that the district changed its policy and refused to distribute CEF's fliers because they
promoted religion. Liberty Counsel wrote a letter explaining that the new policy was
unconstitutional. After agreeing that the district's new policy needed revision, the district
permitted the Good News Club's fliers to be distributed.

Temecula, California 

Liberty Counsel helped the Inland Valley Chapter of CEF to obtain refunds of more than
$6,500 from two school districts that discriminated against CEF by charging higher fees
than charged to other organizations. The Murrieta Valley Unified School District overcharged
CEF by $3,361.02 because CEF is religious. Now CEF can afford to provide club meetings to
the children weekly instead of monthly. The Temecula Valley Unified School District permitted
secular groups to meet without cost, but charged CEF $3,246.09. 

Valencia, California 

The Newhall School District attempted to charge CEF for using the school when other non-profit
groups used it without cost. When CEF's fee waiver was denied, Liberty Counsel sent a letter
to the superintendent saying that the district could not discriminate against an organization
for religious reasons. The superintendent then granted the club the same free access provided
to other community groups. 

Boise, Idaho 

A Good News Club that was to start this Fall was suddenly cancelled by the superintendent
of the Kamiah Unified School District, who refused to allow a religious club to meet or
distribute announcements, citing "separation of church and state." Liberty Counsel contacted
the District's attorney to explain that CEF must receive equal access. As a result, the
superintendent allowed CEF to start the following week and to distribute flyers for the club.
