Purpose Statement 2014

Purpose Statement:

Family TOUCH is a Christian support group that exists to minister to Christian families in the Greater Greenville area and surrounding counties of Upstate South Carolina who are educating their children at home.  Family TOUCH is not an Option 3 Accountability Association. (See SC Homeschool Law for more information)  Our group wishes to encourage the member families to "love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind."  We desire to help equip the parents in their teaching role at home by providing information, resources, and leadership to our member families.  We also offer support, encouragement, and prayer for one another as we journey together on this path of home schooling.  Some opportunities that our members benefit from are:

Field trips             Spelling Bee            Forums          History Night        

Support meetings          Science Fair          Seminars and workshops        

USA and International Festivals              Fellowships                Park Days          

Home school pictures         Pizza Hut Book-It Reading Program pizza parties

     Mom's Night Out

We desire to help meet the varying needs of our member families and other Homeschoolers in our area, and encourage members to be involved in the ministry of Family TOUCH. Our group is parent-led. Each member family should serve the group in some way, which will bring fellowship and joy as we work together. Our group is open to any Christian home schooling family in the greater Greenville area who is in compliance with the SC Homeschool Law or Christian family using a Virtual School option (see our policy on Virtual Schools). Internet access and an active email address is required to complete the membership process. Each member family must also agree and adhere to our Statement of Faith, Handbook Policies, and Website Forum Etiquette.
