Is your child signed up for
CBMs 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). Since 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, Childrens Bible Ministries (CBM) provides interdenominational Bible chapels for our children and youth during school hours, off campus, with parental permission. Johnson County is one of four counties in East Tennessee sponsoring Released Time Education with over 3,500 students enrolled.
CBMs community ministry provides Bible chapels for all five elementary schools and the Middle School, grades 1-8. Last year, over 900 students participated in Johnson County. 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. This we will be learning about the life of Joseph.
Who? Over 900 Johnson County students, grades 1-8 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 Mr. Mike Whitehouse at 727-1941.
