Chino Valley Released Time Christian Education is a non-profit 501C3 organization. We have been serving Chino Valley since 1998. We started with 2 schools and 11 children. We have grown to all ALL 22 elementary schools and thousands of children. Our staff is an all volunteer group of men and women, who were security cleared, who want to share the word of God with public school students. We go to every elementary school in the Chino Unified School District! We teach, and worship with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders who have parent permission. In each school office we keep a box where the permission slips are kept, or you can download one from this site under Permission Slips, and turn it in to our box in the office.
Studies have shown that as adults whom had attended released time in elementary school show:
•Involvement and development in school and in the community
Improved academic literacy skills
•Improved relationships with family and friends
•Stronger self confidence and regard for others
•Reduction in risk-taking behavior
•Positive coping skills for a variety of life situations
•A greater connection to God, leading to a stronger understanding of life and a greater self purpose
Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of the youngest signers of the Declaration of Independence, physician, scientist, and treasurer of the U.S. Mint from 1797 to 1813 under President John Adams, wrote:
“I believe no man was ever early instructed in the truths of the Bible without having been made wiser or better, by the early operation of these impressions upon his mind. Among my earliest recollections of religious instruction is the influence of dedicated RTCE instructors. I am still pleased to affirm this timely and effective ministry."
