TO PREPARE GOD’S PEOPLE FOR WORKS OF SERVICE, SO THAT THE BODY OF CHRIST MAY BE BUILT UP…AND BECOME MATURE, ATTAINING TO THE WHOLE MEASURE OF THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST. EPHESIANS 4:12-13
A homeschool support and field trip group of Christian families in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
What we do
As families, we meet on several Fridays a month:
1st Fridays: Moms with Kids Gatherings, usually at an outdoor/indoor park.
2nd Fridays (evenings): Moms Time in the evening in a social setting for support. Special Soup, Salad, and Pie night in October and an Evening Tea in April. Occasionally, youth in grades 4+ are invited to come for a game night with one another while the moms meet.
3rd Fridays: Field Trip, Service Project, or Recreational Fitness Activity
Other membership benefits:
Meet with families on the 4th & 5th Fridays at museums or other locations if you'd like to get together more often.
