bethesda homeschoolers

Bethesda Homeschoolers is an outreach ministry of Bethesda Baptist Church in Clayton, North Carolina. Therefore, we are a Christian homeschooling group, and resources and curriculum and advice will be shared from a Christian perspective. Everyone is welcome! You do not need to be a member/attender of Bethesda Baptist Church to be a part of Bethesda Homeschoolers and membership is FREE. Some activities may have a fee, but we try to keep it as low as possible.

Our goal to connect and minister to homeschooling families. Within the group, we schedule many types of activities, clubs, and support projects to enrich the lives of our larger homeschooling community as well as the world around us.

Mission Statement: Bethesda Homeschoolers exists to GATHER so we can fellowship with other homeschooling families, GROW by discipling our children and encouraging parents,  GIVE by serving our community, and GO by reaching out to other homeschool families.

      We know that homeschooling is challenging and scary to jump into! Sometimes, we moms just need a moment to talk to other moms. We are here to help! We are a community of new homeschoolers and experienced homeschoolers who love to share and support each other! We hold monthly Mom's Coffee and quarterly Mom's Night Out! You can email or join our Facebook group as well! Let us know how we can help you!
