bethesda homeschoolers

As of Monday, August 29, 2022: Bethesda Homeschoolers has been blessed to serve a great need in the Johnston County area in the days following the Covid shutdown. We were there to welcome families with open arms who were craving fellowship, we were there to answer questions and provide support and activities for so many new homeschool families, and we were there to share the love of Jesus in tangible ways! We have made lifelong friends through such an amazing group. In recent months, we have seen a wealth of homeschool ministries and coops and groups open their doors in Johnston County. It is truly a unique situation where we all get to have so many great groups to choose from. 

Bethesda Homeschoolers will be putting a pause on all of our activities until further notice while we pray for direction for how we can specifically meet the needs of our families, our church member families, and the community. Please join us in prayer as we seek the Lord's direction for this ministry.


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.
