The purpose of Released Time Christian Education is to share God’s word with the 4th and 5th grade boys and girls in the public schools of Placentia and Yorba Linda. Last year over 450 students were enrolled at the 21 schools in the district. For many children, this is their only contact with the teaching of scripture.
How it works
Once a week, during the lunch period, the students attend a 40 minute Bible study. Released Time teachers and helpers go to the office, get the students and walk them to a near by Chapel on Wheels. These are rolling solar powered classrooms with desks, audio visual equipment, Blackboards and whiteboards with all the necessary supplies to conduct an exciting class. During this time they eat their lunches sing songs of praise, watch Bible based videos and receive teaching from the Bible. After class the teacher and helper walks them back to school. Parents are welcome and encouraged to visit the class.
