CHIL MISSION STATEMENT
Christian Homeschoolers in Lodi
v This group exists to provide support for parents who are homeschooling one or more of their children. We are organized for the purpose of giving one another encouragement and support; and to share our varying styles, resources, ideas, successes, and failures. (We don’t offer any legal covering for homeschooling.) We seek to carry each other’s burdens and be our brother’s keepers in this endeavor, during this common season in all of our lives. We always want to be available to offer prayer support!
v We support several different styles of homeschooling: (This list is not conclusive.)
Those who file their own affidavits
Those who belong to an ISP
Those who belong to a private school
Those who belong to a public charter
v We believe that parents have a right to choose the type of education for their child and that homeschooling is a “calling” from God.
v We have only one prerequisite: That if you choose to participate in this group, you would hold to the same conservative Christian worldview on which this group is based.
