The Ministry of Homeschooling

Field TripDid you know that when you are teaching and homeschooling your children, you are ministering? Yup, that’s right! You are serving the Lord through being their educator and parent.

While we love and enjoy our “home” ministry to our children, my husband and I also minister to them through our homeschool support group. We look for ways that we can make their field trips, co-ops, game nights, and any other events more enjoyable.

Today was our first homeschool meeting of the year and we had a blast! We had an opportunity to meet the new families joining in and encourage them. We were able to discuss the coming year and lay down some plans for future events. Me

My husband volunteers as photographer for the group, so student and faculty ID shots were taken today; getting the year started off right. I volunteer by handling the newsletter, yearbook, and T-Shirt orders. It looks to be a very busy, but rewarding, year!

It has been a blessing serving in the ministry of our homeschool group. We love the fellowship and the fun. Sometimes it seems they are as much family as, well, family!

Do you have a PSP that you are a part of? What part of homeschool ministry are you involved in?

  1. While I wouldn’t necessarily call it a ministry, we did have an awesome homeschool co-op where we used to live. It was a secular co-op where all faiths were welcome and it was a fantastic experience for my children and me. I found a wonderful support group there and found myself with more direction in my home life, more confidence that I was doing right by my family.

    Working alone in the homeschool world is so lonely. I can’t wait until we find that sense of community again. We never truly felt that our co-op was family, mostly because we didn’t attend for that long, but we certainly were well on our way to building an extended family through our wonderful homeschool co-op.
