ROCK Academy is a homeschool program that takes tremendous efforts to nurture the heart as well as the mind. We do this in small, unintentional ways in the classroom; but also in two intentional ways: weekly character study, and serving in various outreach projects.
One way to build community, develop stronger relationships, and serve God's call to minister to the weak, is to SERVE OTHERS. Each month there are various reasons we cannot meet at Grace Church for classes (i.e. holidays). What we have done to stay connected is organized missions projects that families with all ages of children can do together. We might pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child, make sandwiches at the homeless shelter, visit a nursing home, or pack food at Feed My Starving Children.
Mission Mondays are designed to help show children - and remind parents - that God desires that we learn beyond reading, writing, and arithmetic! What He really cares about is our HEART.
