Pennsylvania law allows for public school students to be released from class for religious instruction. What an amazing opportunity to reach otherwise unchurched children with the gospel, and to encourage and disciple children who have already trusted Christ as Savior.
Each week during the school year, trained teachers and workers present: Bible lessons, memory verses, Bible songs, and a missionary story.
Students must have written parental permission to attend. This is NOT sponsored by the school district or Department of Education but by CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP OF EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INC. The students are transported to a nearby church or designated location.
Bible lessons are presented in a variety of ways, including the traditional favorite, flannel graph. In this age of technology and video, flannel graph still captures the attention of the children in a unique way. Other lessons are presented with flashcards and other creative means.
