                        Do You Wonder Why?
This short booklet and video begins to answer questions that are on everyone’s minds: Why do so many bad things happen in the world? Why did God allow this to happen? How can I get through this terrible time? CEF has distributed millions of copies of Do You Wonder Why? booklet. 

Easter Egg Hunt Cancelled 

As a result of events worldwide in the last 24 hours regarding coronavirus, we want to provide you with an update on the actions we are taking here at Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) of IL, Inc: Three Rivers Chapter. Our decision making is driven by one of our priorities, which is the health and safety of our children, volunteers, and their families. As a precautionary measure and based upon our complete trust in our mighty God, we have decided at this time it would be wise to cancel this year’s Easter Egg Hunt that was scheduled for Saturday April 11.  We appreciate the donations and support we have already received. Our plan is to utilize these items for events coming later this year. We want you to know that we are also continuing to monitor the situation which may affect additional events and ministries of CEF in our local chapter. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at 815.741.0366.

CEF of IL, Inc: Three Rivers Chapter

 Welcome to Child Evangelism Fellowship-- The Three Rivers Chapter serving Will, Grundy, and Kankakee Counties! We invite you to look around and get a feel for us.  Please stop by and sign our online guest book, and if you have any questions feel free to reach out and call one of our Ministry Leaders.

Through the Good News Club, which is similar to a high-powered Sunday School held in public schools and neighborhoods, churches can build relationships with children and their parents outside church doors.  Good News Clubs provide the context in which ongoing evangelism and discipleship can occur. We hope you and your family will have a warm experience with us as we share ministries to children.
We are part of a world wide ministry. Learn how God is using Child Evangelism Fellowship in worldwide children's ministry at
We'd also like to invite you to read our online prayer and praise page "Hold the Rope." You can be one of our partners in prayer, God is waiting patiently, at all times, in all situations, to communicate with you. 
Satisfied to serve, 
J. Michael "Mike" Fox
