What is Generations?

Generations History

It all started with a handful of families who were starting out on their journey of homeschooling and just needed a little support. In 1999, four families attended the Crossroads Fellowship Adventure City Family Camping Trip. In getting to know one another, they soon discovered that they had something in common—homeschooling. A few of the families were already involved with other homeschool groups, but they were spread out geographically, and these groups didn’t quite meet their needs. The families began to meet together for playdates and an occasional field trip, including a trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Others heard about the small fellowship and joined in.

In the spring of 2001, a group of about fifteen moms got together in the Children’s Hallway at Crossroads Fellowship to brainstorm and plan the future of the group that would become Generations Homeschool Group. These ladies discussed their experiences with other homeschool groups and pooled their ideas of the best from each: one field trip per month, a co-op with 8-week semesters in the fall and spring, parent meetings for encouragement, an open group.

The name Generations was chosen to convey the desire to have an impact on the next generation and beyond. The name came from Psalm 78:4 (NIV): “We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders He has done.” Our slogan came from Deuteronomy 6:1-2 (NIV): “These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the LORD your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.” The name Legacy for the co-op indicated the hope that we will leave a legacy for our children.

That first year, Generations started Legacy, and held parties, park dates, and field trips. Of note, the Legacy preschool class only had three students. Parties included a Christmas craft party, Valentine’s exchange after Legacy, a Saint Patrick’s Day party and an End-of-Year ice cream social. One notable field trip was to a beaver dam east of Raleigh where many were heard to comment, “We didn’t know it was going to be this far away.”

Since then, Generations has grown to over 80 families. Generations continues to tell of God’s praiseworthy deeds with the color and flavors that each family brings to our community.
