Our purpose is to support and encourage one another in our personal walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, specifically as parents in our calling to home educate our children and equip them to serve the Lord by incorporating prayer, worship and devotions in our meetings, and to provide opportunities, with a biblical worldview, for our children.
We are a cooperative of 20-25 families meeting twice a month, nine months each year, at Lakes Free Church in Lindstrom, Minnesota. Our members (parents) teach a variety of quarterly classes; subjects include PE, arts & crafts, and lifeskills. Classes offered vary each year, as the talents of our the members allow. Every member volunteers at every meeting either teaching or assisting in the children’s classes. Membership is limited and therefore dependent on current enrollment, a signed statement of faith, and subject to Advisory Board approval. There is an annual fee. New applications are accepted in July and August only. Almost half of our students are 7th grade or older.
