Memorize God’s Word.

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11

The day will begin with worship, the monthly hymn, Scripture memory and announcements. This will be a decidedly, unwaveringly Christian co-op. Scripture memory is SO important! Memorizing presidents, states and capitals and multiplication facts are all great endeavors. Memorizing God’s very own words = PRICELESS! What will get our kids (and families) through the toughest times in our lives? Resting in God’s everlasting care. How do we learn about Him and what a great Father He is to us? HIS WORD!

Worship God regularly.

”I will praise God’s name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30

Our community day will include a time of offering praise to our Creator and the Father God who loves each and every one of us. He is good, and faithful and worthy of our voices being lifted to Him! Our community will grow stronger together as we spend this time in corporate worship. This will be an essential part of our community. If you’re a mama or a student who plays an instrument and/or enjoys singing and would like to participate, let us know!

Build up Christian Homeschool families and support them.”

”Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially those who belong to the family of believers.” Galatians 6:20

If you are home educating any age or any amount of children, you are a ROCKSTAR and a SUPER HERO! We want to support you, to provide a community that comes alongside you in your journey.

Create a close and loving community.

”Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:10

We want to create a community of families who pray for one another, spend time together, and have each other’s backs. We plan to host regular events and field trips and include whole families in these activities. Do you crave this kind of community?

Promote the importance of a strong nuclear family.

“But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear Him, and His righteousness with their children’s children—with those who keep His covenant and remember to obey His precepts.” Psalm 103:17-18

Within the walls of your home, you are training up future leaders of the country. You are doing the work of discipleship when you teach the children God has blessed you with about His Word. Your family is important to God and to His kingdom. We want to support, encourage and build up your family as you do this incredibly important job.

Train students to be able to give an answer for their faith.

”But in your hearts revere Christ as LORD. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.” 1 Peter 3:15-16

There comes a point when our kids will have to decide if they trust in God like their parents do, and if they want to follow Him and worship Him with their whole heart. We pray that they choose Him, and recognize that God, in His good nature, has given our children free will. When they face this big, life-shaping decision, we want them to understand God’s Word. This is why we are going to be spending time doing Apologetics on our community days. We consider this to be one of the most important things our kids will be learning during the coming school year.

Teach students to discern truth.

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1

There are going to be false teachers in our kids’ lives, and we want them to be able to discern truth from fiction. We don’t have any desire to train up children who simply go along with the crowd, because a crowd is so easily swayed. Instead, wouldn’t it be wonderful if our children learned to ask important questions and seek out the truth in every situation they are faced with? Let us endeavor together to raise kids who ask questions!

Express the gifts God has given each of us (even the children) within the community.

”For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” Romans 12:4-5

Isn’t it wonderful that God did not create us all the same? He knew what He was doing when he gave each of us, even our children, different gifts and talents. We believe that our community will thrive when students and parents are allowed to utilize the gifts and talents that God has given them.

Equip students to do whatever good works God is preparing them for.

”All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Our kids’ education matters to us. They can be better servants in God’s kingdom when they 1. Know His Word and 2. Have a proper education. We want our kids to be prepared for whatever God has for them next. Maybe that is higher education, a trade, a profession or training up the next generation in the home. Whatever God calls them to do, we want our kids to be prepared.
