The churches of the Orleans area, under the auspices of the Orleans Area Ministerial Association, invite students of Orleans Community Schools to participate in a released-time program we call “TOUCH” which stands for “transforming others under Christ’s hand.”  It is a program that provides religious and moral teaching based on the Bible, meeting once a month for one hour.  The children are released from the school and taken by a privately-contracted school bus, operated by a properly-licensed driver, and taken to one of the four Orleans area churches that are within minutes of the school (Orleans Christian Church, Orleans United Methodist Church, and Orleans First Baptist Church).
