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.

General Information

 
 
 
 
 
Membership to Bethesda Homeschoolers is limited to families who are homeschooling traditionally. Your school must be registered with the North Carolina Department of Non-Public Education. Unfortunately, we are not equipped to support families who are schooling virtually with the local school system. Our support exists to create opportunities for homeschool students and support parents as they administrate their homeschools: choose curriculum, create transcripts, plan course work, teaching ideas, etc. Thank you so much for your understanding! 
Please select all that apply.

We have many exciting volunteer opportunities with Bethesda Homeschoolers! We can't wait to connect with you and find an area of service that fits your gifts and your time availability. Please note that some spots need to be a church member and those are noted. In addition, any teaching or assistant positions (or any other positions deemed necessary) will require a background check and safety policy review and signatures, including a Statement of Faith. 

Having a Christian faith is NOT a requirement of membership or participation in Bethesda Homeschoolers, but please understand that Bethesda Homeschoolers is an outreach ministry of Bethesda Baptist Church and as such, all activities, support, and advice will come from a Christian perspective.
