Christian H.O.M.E. Group
Homeschoolers Offering Meaningful Encouragement & Educational Enrichment

Our mission comes from 1Peter 4:10 - We are a fellowship of Christian Homeschoolers striving to faithfully administer God's Grace by using our God given gifts in loving service:

To enrich our children with fun education from a Christian worldview
To enjoy and foster meaningful peer relationships within the homeschooling body of Christ
To encourage, pray for, and strengthen one another in the home education journey
We gladly welcome new members!

Our group meetings consist of structured classes to enhance home education, taught as much as possible through a Christian worldview. We are a group for nursery - 12th grade. Classes are self-contained for nursery through kindergarten children. Classes for our older students are divided into three groups:

Group A: 1st-3rd grade students
Group B: 4th-6th grade students
Group C: 7th-12th grade students.
Classes for our children vary from year to year and could include art, hands-on science, history, fun w/ foods, P.E., reading fun, sewing, or literature, drama, and life skills for our older children. Each year we aim specifically to offer Physical Education and a fine art option, both of which can be more challenging opportunities for home educators to implement in the home. Classes are offered and taught based on the strengths and gifts of our adult members. Our group is designed so that each family must have a parent present to help provide instruction, supervision, and to safeguard a child in the event of an emergency.

We meet twice monthly on Mondays from September to November, for a total of 6 gatherings comprising our 1st semester. During our 2nd semester we meet similarly on Mondays from February to April, for a total of 6 gatherings, with a 7th and final gathering in May for our Talent Share program. Our meeting facility is East White Oak Bible Church, just a short drive North West of Normal. We enjoy use of spacious classrooms, the church gymnasium for our P.E. classes, a beautiful kitchen for our foods classes, and comfortable nursery accommodations.
