Mission Statement and Membership Policies
FCHE is a Christian home school support group that is not affiliated with any church or denomination. Our primary function is to provide support in the Titus 2 model for moms who are home educating their children using a home-based private educational program. This includes both the personal support of bestowing encouragement and prayer, and the practical support of sharing information, ideas, and resources pertaining to home education.
We endeavor to strengthen mothers, and through them whole families, to train up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Therefore, our foundation and primary focus is the monthly moms' meetings where this support can occur. It is highly recommended that those desiring to participate in FCHE commit to regular attendance of these meetings. Any mom may attend these meetings without participating in any other FCHE activity, but the reverse situation is discouraged (e.g. attending field trips without attending the meetings.) It is at these meetings that you will be able to receive support from and give support to others, and develop the kind of relationships that will bless you and keep you going strong in home education.
From August to May, we meet every third Thursday
We are a volunteer-run ministry. Through the involvement and effort of all its members, FCHE can provide encouragement and resources for families, assist new home schoolers, and provide academic and social interaction with other parents and children with similar concerns and educational goals. Those new to the group are encouraged to refrain from volunteering in the first year so they may receive all the support necessary to start their journey of home schooling strong.
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in or actively engaged in home education; payment of annual dues and current registration must be on file.
