Honor Code

  • We will seek to honor God and others with our speech, conduct and dress. We will model desirable social behaviors and guide our children in following our model, encouraging one another with loving accountability.
  • We will speak what is kind and true.
  • We will remain aware of our children's behavior in order to quickly redirect them when necessary and coach them in Biblical character development.  
  • We will put the interests of the group ahead of the interests of our family alone by:
  1. Honoring the volunteers at FHCHE sponsored events by making every effort to arrive on time.

  2. No gossiping about any child or member (Ephesians 4:26: Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen).  

  3. Showing respect for others through modest and appropriate dress.

  4. Remembering that we are guests of each venue, and we will aim to leave them (parks, event venues, field trip locations, members' homes, etc.) in as good or better condition than we found them.

  5. Teaching our children correct principles of respectful behavior towards others in social and educational settings.

  6. Looking for opportunities to serve when attending FHCHE events.

  7. Choosing forgiveness when wronged, remembering that we are also, by God’s grace, forgiven.

 

We understand that FHCHE will not tolerate bullying or retaliation for alleged bullying at any time and we agree to abide by the following conflict resolution guidelines:

  1. Talk with our children about what constitutes appropriate and inappropriate behavior in their interactions with others at FHCHE events;

  2. Discuss with them the importance of coming to you, the parent, immediately if/when harmed or threatened with harm by another member;

  3. Parent and child together take the matter immediately to the parent of the offending member for addressing and resolution based on our Honor Code guidelines., realizing that tThis is a prime opportunity to teach character development and Biblical conflict resolution skills;

  4. Ascertain whether each family involved in the incident believes that restitution has been made and forgiveness given.

  5. If the families are unable to resolve the issue completely, may notify wise council privately (Matthew 18:15).

  6. Be aware of your children’s activities and with whom they are playing at all FHCHE events and park days. Be alert to potentially harmful behavior with a willingness to step in if necessary;

  7. Choose to be a peacemaker and problem-solver among your circle of friends, even when discussing difficult issues.

 

Each of us has a responsibility to live peaceably with one another (Romans 12:18) and contribute towards the enjoyment of FHCHE events for one another.

At the discretion of FHCHE,  membesr may have their membership revoked indefinitely.
