Dear Prospective Homeschool Family,

We are writing to you to share with you the exciting new Spring 2015 schedule for the H.I.S. Ministry Home School Co-Op Group at Faith Bible Church!  You have been given a link to this site either because you have expressed interest being a part of our ministry, or a member of our leadership has approached you to consider being a part of our ministry.  We are asking for you to spend some time praying and asking God if you feel this ministry would be a good fit for you and your students.

H.I.S. Ministry (Homeschooling in the Spirit) has been developed by a group of homeschool moms in the fellowship of Faith Bible Church who feel God’s leading to provide a community for their children, as well as reach their extended communities through teaching and supporting both students and families.

The ministry, in its structure, is set up like a traditional homeschool co-op with structured weekly class times.  We meet on Mondays and start with a chapel service, during which there will be a Bible lesson and gospel presentation.   True to a traditional co-op, all parents will be involved in the ministry through teaching, co-teaching, being a helper, serving in the kitchen, etc.  We will also be encouraging the families to be thinking about and getting involved with local ministries, such as collecting food for food pantries and servicing the elderly.

Here are some documents to help you better understand H.I.S. Ministry:
