Proverbs Twenty-Two Six
Welcome to P226! After only two-years in existence, we are now the largest homeschool support in the Mid-South. Don't let the word "big" scare you. Big is not a bad thing. The reason we have grown so quickly has more to do with our intimacy and staying connected. We are an active support group with plenty of opportunities to socialize and meet new friends.
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. We believe parents are to work together as home educators guided by the Holy Spirit training and teaching their children as He leads and provides.
