The idea that service to God should have only to do with a church altar, singing, reading, sacrifice, and the like is without doubt but the worst trick of the devil. How could the devil have led us more effectively astray than by the narrow conception that the service of God takes place only in the church and by works done therein. ?… ?The whole world could abound with services to the Lord ?… ?not only in churches but also in the home, kitchen, workshop, and field.

-Martin Luther

Welcome


Welcome to the Home Educators of the Eastern Shore home page.  We are a group of families whose foundations are in Jesus Christ and believe in traditional, conservative family biblical values.  We endeavor to teach our children at home because we believe that is what God has called us to do and because we believe it is the best place for our children.  We gather together to enrich the education experience, to build relationships, to support one another, to encourage each other,  and to provide our children with a variety of additional  experiences that would otherwise not be open to us individually.  Our goal is to walk side by side with each other through this home schooling journey.  We welcome people of all biblical,christian denominations, who is likeminded,  to join us. 

Our group operates independently of any church affiliation.  Due to the generosity of our gracious host church, we are able to call Grace Community home.   If you would like more info about them, please click on the "Our Host Church" tab on the left  hand navigation bar.. 

Unlike many other home school groups, membership in our group is two-fold. First, we are a support group which is where our relationships and support  of one another is nurtured. The success of our group is due largely to the participation of all of  our members and we require each member to contribute to our group by organizing at least one  event  either alone or with someone else in which the group can participate.We want our members to be active in our group. The benefit  of this requirement is that our group has a lot of experiences and opportunities to offer our members and students.  By seeking membership in this group, you agree to honor this committment and to be an active participant..

 The  support group dimension of the group  includes website access to our secure databases and information, field trips, holiday parties, yearbooks, game night, team builiding activities,  Moms Night Out, science fair, history/geography fair, camping trips,  end of the year picnics, etc.  and opportunity to be a part of our co-ops.  

Our co-ops are the second dimension of membership in our group.  Once you are accepted as a member of the support group then you are eligible to participate in our cooperatives, if you wish. Currently we have three cooperatives :  the  Science Cooperative, the History Cooperative and the Wednesday Afternoon  Cooperative.  

For more information on our cooperatives, please click on the "Our Cooperatives" tab at the top and then click on either the Wednesday Afternoon Cooperative tab, the History Cooperative tab, or the Science Cooperatve tab.

The vision of our group is to be a family, involved in one another's lives.  As heads of our families we try to include the dads in as much as we can and  welcome them to attend any of our events or cooperatives.  Our families work together and we play together.  We nurture our friendships in a variety of practical forms like the adults going out to dinner, we help one another with projects, prayer, family events, providing dinners, encouraging phone calls, extending individual hospitality,  and showing that we care.    

Everyone is encouraged to review our  " What We Believe " page to see the core values that forge our group to determine  if your family would be a good fit. 

If you are likeminded in your reasons for homeschooling, hold to the same  biblical  values and and beliefs as stated on our, "What We Believe" page, please request membership by clicking  the "JOIN" tab on the top navigation bar of this page.  Our administrators will review your application and let your know the status shortly thereafter.   We look forward to welcoming you.
