5-Day Clubs primarily take place in parks, community centers, churches, and in church members backyards.
In the 1950's these clubs were called Backyard Bible Clubs!
Sometimes host churches like to participate in a three clubs a day 5-Day Club model. This means that one or more churches in the community will secures three different locations for a club outreach in the community.
For example one club in the morning , one in the afternoon and an evening club for 5 consecutive days. This is a powerful way to make a big impact for the kids in the community ...as well has making the church known to the kids and their families.
A public park is a great location for a morning club (10am-11:30am). The missionaries will take a short lunch break. An afternoon club could be in a church members backyard who has children in the neighborhood. Housing complexes and trailer parks are good locations for a 5DC. The evening club could be at the church or a community center.
The possibilities are many.
It is always encouraged for the host church members to start early in praying for 5DC , the missionaries and the children who will attend. Prayer walks throughout town and neighborhoods passing out invitation flyers will make huge impact for 5 days of none-stop fun and learning for the children. ( CEF provides the invitation flyers.)
