for Resolute Christian Homeschoolers
TORCH is a local homeschool support group, serving Texarkana, AR/TX and the surrounding area. Organized and operated by parent volunteers, our mission is to support and encourage those pursuing the choice of homeschooling for the education of their children, and to represent the homeschool community in a manner that gives glory to Jesus Christ.
TORCH is a Christian group, operated on the basis of Biblical principles and living faith; we uphold traditional Christian values while welcoming members of all races, nationalities and backgrounds who subscribe to The TORCH Ideals. Our common bond is our concern for the education of our children.
TORCH Meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month:
7pm-9pm @ Highland Park Baptist Church
2401 Hazel St, Texarkana, TX.
We will have a potblessing and each family will have an opportunity to share a time of difficulty in their homeschool journey and how the Lord has seen them through, or any other thing that they are particularly Thankful for. This would be a great opportunity for your children to share a Thanksgiving memory, short story, ect..
Please invite your families. This is a time to share God's faithfulness with those we love!
Visitors and guests are always welcome, and may call the President, LaRona Son, or any of the Board Members for more information. Each meeting covers a different topic of interest to homeschoolers, upcoming events, and pertinent legal issues. TOASTMASTERS Gavel Club for teens and ART Class for children are offered during our regularly scheduled monthly meetings.
Through the year we have Educational Field Trips, Bowling and Park Days, Holiday Parties and other family oriented activities.
