Opponents to the Gospel and Good News Clubs have launched a new campaign. Perhaps you have seen the online articles about After School Satan Club where an organization is working toward establishing these clubs in every school that has a Good News Club®. Katherine Stewart is somehow associated with the group. It is a publicity stunt. We expect after the initial media flurry that the Satan club will fizzle out as others before it have.
The name of the club itself may cause alarm to parents and school administrators. We can help ease that concern. In the next day or two USA Ministries will provide sample correspondence that you can share with school administrators, church partners, parents and other audiences who will be concerned with what they hear in the media. Please be watching your email for these helps coming to you soon.
In the meantime, it is very important to do the following:
- ANY and ALL media and interview requests should be directed to International Headquarters. 800-300-4033 ext. 1310.
- Do not share locations of Good News Clubs unless you personally know the person calling. Explain that for safety reasons, we do not share locations of Good News Clubs. (Parents would likely inquiry at their children’s school.)
- Do not share and spread the opponent’s message on social media. This is a good opportunity to mobilize the Christian community and challenge them to start Good News Clubs. We will be providing material to take this occasion to do so. In the meantime, please do not share the opponent’s message on social media.
- Pray for our opponents. Jesus Himself said, “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).
Thank you for following these guidelines.
Believers fight spiritual battles on our knees. It is there that we have certain victory.
