About Us

We are a Christian co-op who meet on Fridays at Grace Church in Molalla, OR for a fall and a spring term each year. Our main goal is to offer a safe and uplifting environment for homeschooling families.

We do our best to keep co-op affordable. Parents teaching classes helps keep this possible. As a co-op member, you are expected to take part in helping, teaching, and running the organization. Your first term with us, you will help in classes and build relationships with other parents and families. During your second term, you prepare a class and become a teacher. During your third term (or sooner if you feel ready), we ask that you take on a coordinator role to help our co-op run smoothly behind the scenes. 

Statement of Faith

Our Statement of Faith is considered to be “non-denominational” and encompasses those truths which distinguish Christian believers from non-believers. There are many other precious truths taught in the Bible over which believers have differed in understanding. Therefore, this is not a statement of all that is important to believe, but of all that is essential to believe for Christian fellowship and unity.

We welcome families who believe differently, but ask that no one causes dissension by deliberately teaching anything in opposition to our stated values. We require that members of the Executive Team, as well as the Chapel Coordinator and teachers of spiritually-focused classes personally believe in the points listed in the Statement of Faith.

We Believe

1. The Old and New Testaments are inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man. The scriptures serve as the authoritative rule of faith and conduct for all people who profess to follow Christ. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)

2. The one, true God has revealed himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the creator of heaven and earth, and the redeemer of mankind. While there is only one God, we relate to him as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 1:3-4)

3. Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:47, Romans 10:13-15, Ephesians 2:8, Titus 2:11, 3:5-7, John 14:6)

Our History

Southeast Christian Homeschool Community has been meeting since 2009; we started out as First Class Happy Valley. We were a part of Heidi St. John's, the Busy Homeschool Mom, First Class Firmly Planted Ministry, to support and encourage local homeschooling families. We changed our name to Southeast Christian Homeschool Community (SCHC) as we grew and changed locations. We are a community of Christians coming together to help educate, encourage and support each other. Our leadership team works to coordinate opportunities for all members to be involved. SCHC is a place where you and your children can learn and socialize with other homeschooling families - making friends and getting connected!

About Our Host Church

Grace Church is a well established Baptist Church that has opened their doors to our group. While we are a nondenominational group, we will be an extension of their ministry to serve the community. We will have access to their whole property including an indoor gym, 2 kitchens, lots of classrooms, playground and large yard in a rural area just outside Molalla.
