Our purpose is to minister to the needs of CHESS member families, welcoming and orienting new members, assisting those new to homeschooling and providing support and encouragement for CHESS families.
If you have any questions, please contact David & Shameka Drake and DeWayne & Christina Yoder, our Encouragement Coordinators.
Areas of Ministry
Ladies Retreat: A Time Apart
This retreat is a special time for every homeschooling mom to get away and be refreshed and encouraged. It will be the perfect chance to fellowship with other homeschool moms. Be watching for more details!
Mom's Night Out
Mom's Night Out is designed to be a monthly "night out" where ideas can be shared and we can encourage and support each other while having fun and fellowship. It will be held on the last Tuesday of every month, from September thru May but not December. We will meet at South Church, 5250 Cornerstone Drive in Lansing, from 7 to 9 PM.
The Manna Ministry is a group of CHESS members dedicated to provide meals to CHESS families in need due to the birth of a baby, a death in the family or a series of hard times. If you would like to help, or if you know of a CHESS family in need, please contact: Michelle Jansma.
CHESS Prayer Line
Prayer Ministry Coordinator - Amy O'Keefe
The CHESS prayer line is our prayer connection. Submit your prayer request by phone or email to the prayer coordinator and have your request sent out to over 300 CHESS families who will pray for your needs. If you prefer to be kept anonymous, your name can be left out of the email that is sent out. No request is too big or too small to submit. We have seen wonderful answers this past year and have felt like a family as we pray for each other's needs.
