With much prayer and conversation we have made the decision to dissolve the Pearls Homeschool Support Group, concluding 20 years of serving the local homeschool community. Over the past couple years attendance has declined due to various reasons; there are numerous co ops, CC groups, online groups, smaller mom groups - all of which seem to be filling the need for support in group form.
Thank you for the opportunity to minister to you and for your ministry to us as fellow home educating moms.
WHO WE ARE
Pearls Homeschool Moms Support Group meets on the third Monday of each month to encourage and strengthen moms in their homeschool journey. The group is very Christ centered and focuses on encouraging one another to be wives, mothers, and friends whose foundations are built on Jesus Christ and His Word.
Our monthly meetings include special speakers, menu planning and recipe ideas, how-to teaching sessions, curriculum ideas and sharing, a swap table and much more. Pearls also hosts a curriculum library. Please let us know if you need to borrow curriculum, would like to look before buying your own, or have some to donate. Children are welcome to attend and participate in activities that have been planned for them in rooms adjacent to the moms' meeting area. Sculpy clay, art supplies, books, puzzles, and board games are a few of the fun things provided.
Whether you are a new homeschool mom, investigating the idea of homeschooling in the future, or have been educating your children for 20 years, you are welcome to join us for a monthly shot of encouragement.
The leaders of Pearls are homeschool moms who volunteer their time.
"Like a shepherd who leads his sheep to life-giving water and pasture, your first responsibility as a parent is to lead your children to the life-giving presence and reality of Christ in your heart and home."
