We believe Released Time Bible education is the best way to restore hope to public school children
We believe Released Time Bible education is the best way to restore hope to public school children – Here’s why:
- Released Time Bible education programs reach the most kids where they are (and by law, have to be) most of the time.
- Bible classes teach right from wrong, love and limits, personal responsibility
- When programming is provided during the school day, there is no inconvenience to parents or requirement to adjust their schedules —
children are simply released from a portion of their regular school day to attend.
- Releasing children to attend Bible classes in churches gets them familiar with church, a friendly and fun place to be.
As children grow older, they may be more likely to return to church one day, as the seeds of faith planted during Released Time Bible studies take root and grow.
