Is your child signed up for CBM?
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.

Seventh-Day Adventist health program
Seventh-day Adventists have a hospital and health institute at Wildwood, Georgia. Many people go there for relief of chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Many times these diagnoses can be reversed through a change in diet and lifestyle. Last year about twelve students from Wildwood came to Mountain City and presented the program Goodbye, Diabetes at the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Cold Springs Road. A lot of good information and help was gained by those in attendance.
This year international students will be back from Wildwood College of Health Evangelism, on Thanksgiving weekend, November 28-29, to present another health program. Friday night, 6 p.m., they will discuss high blood pressure, the silent killer. Why is it so dangerous? How can you treat it? Can you prevent it? On Saturday at 3:30 p.m. , they will have a special presentation on how to boost your immune system. There are many dangerous viruses out there. What can you do to be better prepared for health epidemics? Can you treat the common cold naturally? This will be followed by a special holiday cooking class, with free samples.
