Common Questions

When/where do the Ladies Meetings meet? We meet at Evergreen Baptist Church, in Bixby, from 7-9 pm on the second Tuesday in the following months:  August, October, February, and April.  Look for signs and greeters as you enter the main entrance.  Light refreshments and snacks will be served. Check the website Calendar for updates on all meetings. 

When/where do the Ladies Fellowship meet? Meeting locations vary for fellowships, but occur on the second Tuesday in the following months: September, November, January, and March.  Check the website Calendar for updates on all meetings. 

Can Dads attend the Ladies Meetings/Fellowships? Our Ladies Meetings/Fellowships are designed for ladies.  We DO want to include dads by encouraging our members to do the following:  organize family events, dad/student activities, attend co-op orientation, support mom by coming to co-op, attend the college/high school/career information meeting, attend graduation meetings, and by helping get kids to events. We do ask that when a dad is interested in planning a family/student activity, that he contact the Steering Team to check the calendar and for approval. 

Can a new member join the Spring session of co-op? This is a new addition to our co-op options for new members. If a family joins after fall classes have begun and if it is too late to be part of the fall classes, they can join co-op in the spring. If they have been doing similar fall classwork that is a yearlong class in CHEER, the teacher must give approval for adding a student to their spring class.
