MEETING PLACE:  Father's House Church; 1315 Commerce.  (Click on the stop light for a map of the area.)



MEETING DATE/TIME:  We always meet on a Thursday evening, from 6:30pm to 9pm.  It's often the second Thursday of the month, but some months we have to change, so ALWAYS check the calendar for this month's meeting date.  We do not meet in the summer months, except by special arrangement within the group, like a picnic to the park, a field trip, or whatever anyone in the group wants to set up.  (Anyone is welcome to contribute ideas or organize an event!)



CHILD CARE:  Due to steeply increased prices, we are no longer able to offer child care.  We are very sad about this, but the prices were just beyond what we were able to cover.

       If your children are old enough to sit (by you) through a whole meeting without being distracting, we welcome them there.  Fear not, we do not consider our children "distractions"; we just want our meetings to be an "oasis" for all parents, including whoever is speaking.  (And if we don't have the same definition of "distracting," one of the leaders will have to say something ~ which, we assure you, NONE of us likes doing!!!  But please have a humble and gracious response to our humble and gracious request that you take care of the "distraction" by either taking your child out of the room, or quieting them.  This is a good opportunity to teach your children self control.)



BIG EVENT OF THE YEAR:  Every year in May we have a "Homeschool Presentation Night in which all families are welcome and encouraged to participate.  Click on that link to read all about it!



GROUP LEADERS:  See this page for a list of all the leadership/servant positions in CLHC, the job descriptions of each one, and how to contact the people who are doing them.




NOTE:  Because I (Barb Shelton) am part of ~ and on the board for ~  the above group (with my husband, Dave) AND am also the webmaster for this website, I have much more information to offer about this group than I have for the ones below ~ and the means to do so. This in no way indicates that our group is any "better" than any of the others listed below. If anyone in any of the following groups has more information that I could add to what I have here ~ and, hey, I'll even include graphics too ~ I'd be glad to do so!  But YOU need to give me all the actual information to put here; not just a phone number or email address for me to go hunt it down myself.  My part is getting it here (and maintaining this 400+ page website); your part is gathering and giving me the information.
