P226 services the Mid-South areas. Most events will take place in Memphis, Cordova, Germantown, Arlington, and Bartlett, TN.
Mission Statement And Mission
Proverbs Twenty-Two Six Mission Statement: Lead. Feed. Go.
Objective: P226's purpose is "to train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." To provide educational, creative and exciting activities for our homeschool families. To do all things with love and consideration for our homeschool families. To encourage and allow our children to explore many rich opportunities of childhood. To enjoy and appreciate blessings of life by putting God first. We will accomplish our goal by living as an example of godly leadership for our children. Then we will feed them Biblical principles to be applied into their lives. Finally, we will encourage our children and parents to go into their communities and continue our Biblical mission - Lead. Feed. Go.
We believe in God's order that the man is the head of his household, therefore, we believe the dad's in our homeschool community should be a visible part of this journey as often as possible.
