This week's church announcements
Hale Community Ministries
Due to recent illnesses and injuries, Hale Community Ministries has lost the service of several volunteers. Volunteers are needed to answer the phone and make appointments on Monday (one in the morning and one in the afternoon), work at the desk downstairs during client appointments on Monday mornings, and lead small group Bible studies. If you can help, please call Becky Brumitt at 547-2560.
Is your child signed up for
CBM’s Released Time Education?
Make sure your child joins over 900 Johnson County students as they participate in Children Bible Ministries’ Released Time Education Program (CBM Time). Starting in 1952, Preacher Hinkle taught Bible stories in our Johnson County schools for over 35 years. Under the current interpretation of our Constitution, teaching the Bible on government property is prohibited. But in 1994, the Johnson County School Board approved the Released Time Education Program (RTEP).
Through RTEP, Children’s Bible Ministries (CBM) provides interdenominational Bible chapels for our children and youth during school hours, off campus, with parental permission. Permission is only good for one school year, so if you gave permission last year, you still need to sign a permission form this year. Johnson County is one of four counties in East Tennessee sponsoring Released Time Education with over 3,000 students enrolled.
CBM’s community ministry provides Bible chapels for all of Johnson County’s schools grades 1-9. Last year, over 900 students participated. Chapels are held in churches of four different denominations with volunteers from twice that many denominations.
Why Released Time? God tells us in Deuteronomy 11 to teach the children when we sit in the house, walk along the road, when we lie down and rise up, all the time. In obedience to Him, we need to be teaching our children about Him.
What? Teaching Biblical values through Bible stories from the Old Testament: Creation through Babel.
Who? Over 900 Johnson County students, grades 1-9 When? A one-hour Bible chapel (CBM Time) each month, October through April.
What will they do? Memorize Bible verses and hear an exciting Bible story. They will also have an opportunity to learn from Mailbox Bible Lessons. The boys and girls learn that God can be a significant part of their lives.
If you would like to volunteer to help with Released Time, please call us. For more information, contact “Miss Liane” Lindauer at 957-1804.
