- The purpose of Released Time Christian Education classes is
to share God's Word with the 4th and 5th grade boys and girls in the public
schools and to assure them of His love and forgiveness through His Son
Jesus Christ. Over 1,000 students are enrolled annually in classes
in the Anaheim Elementary School District and the Magnolia School District. For many,
this is their only Bible study.
Once a week
4th and 5th grade children attend a Bible Study. Students are walked to
a near-by Chapel-On-Wheels. During this time a variety of teaching methods
including visuals, videos and music are used. Each child is treated as
a special and unique individual who is loved by God. Everyone is welcome.
UNDER THE LAW - The program has been
available for the 4th and 5th grade students in the
Anaheim Elementary School District and Magnolia School District
since Fall of 1943. Under California Education Code
section 46014, local school boards may give permission
to release students once a week for religious instruction
during the school day. Released Time Christian Education
classes are not held on minimum days.
Time Christian Education is offered at no cost to the students or school district. Each registered child receives
his/her own copy of a Bible without charge.
