He Has Risen! He Has Risen Indeed!

As we reflect during the season of Lent, Holy Week and Resurrection Day we can joyfully rest upon God’s unwavering love and promises. Our lessons from the Old Testament this year teach about the kings and prophets that God used to tell the nations about His goodness, love and promise of redemption through the coming Messiah. What a blessing to share this solid foundation with the children as well as the Good News and love of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah and fulfilled prophecy! There are...

Caring For The Whole Child

Matters of the Heart

Released Time programs are recognized across the United States. Just this year Released Time Programs celebrated 100 years of sharing the Good News with children across the country. Released Time in Orange has served nearly 70,000 children since its beginning. We are continually affirmed when we talk to Released Time Alumnae of how important the program is in helping build self confidence and giving children a strong understanding of life and greater self purpose. This leads to them being stronger and more responsible citizens in school and in their community. Children are a precious gift and giving them purpose in life has value greater than money can buy.

Who We Are

Released Time Christian Education has been educating 4th and 5th grade children in the public schools of Orange, California since 1953. In full compliance with the California Education code, the children are taught Biblical history from the Old and New Testaments in a mobile, off campus “Chapel-On-Wheels”, an oasis where children can enjoy peace, support and encouragement during their school day.

What We Do

We provide mentoring through difficulties and safety in a sometimes hostile environment. Released Time helps build self-confidence and gives children a stronger understanding of life and greater purpose. The children read, memorize scripture, and act dramas while learning parts of Biblical history during a 40 minute class. We encourage our students to be positive and encouraging influence in their community of friends and families and the importance of developing and nurturing a relationship with Jesus Christ.
