What it's all about...

PURPOSE - 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 City 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 City 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.

Released 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.
