Released time is a unique way for the Church to love the community by serving the next generation in this practical way — opening their doors and hearts children who may not otherwise set foot inside a church. Your church can be a beacon of hope, safety and hospitality for children in your community. Could you envision more families joining your flock?
Church buildings near schools are ideal locations for Released Time students to learn about God’s love and God’s Word during the school day, since legally, classes may not be offered on school grounds. Students simply walk or are transported from their school to the host church. Organizers work directly with church staff on the classroom space and program needs, with supplies and volunteers provided by the Released Time program leaders.
Has your pastor heard of Released Time Bible education? If you’re a pastor, what would it take for you to welcome local students for Released Time Bible classes, as they learn about Jesus, many for the first time? Talk with us about the details of hosting Released Time at your church or other location.
