Fall Ministries


Pennsylvania law allows for public school students to be released from classes once per week 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, trained teachers, workers, or CEF of Cumberland County Missionaries 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 CEF of Cumberland County, Inc. The students would be walked to a near by church for Released Time Class.

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 or other creative means.
