Biltmore Church Homeschool MinistryAsheville
A wonderful homeschool group thrives at Biltmore Church. Nearly 300 families are members of our home school ministry. Some families have many children and others have only one child; some have been home schooling for many years and others have only just started. Our ministry offers many opportunities throughout the year to help strengthen our bond with other homeschool families and our children. There is a small annual membership fee which enables families to receive email announcements and to participate in all of our activities, including field trips at least monthly (and often a couple are offered each month :)), monthly Moms’ Night Out, Mugs-n-Muffins, and pizza days, etc. Hands-on mission opportunities are available as well. Some of the ministries have included helping at Manna Food Bank, checking boxes for Operation Christmas Child at the Boone distribution center, feeding the homeless at ABCCM and ministering to senior citizens at Deerfield Retirement Center. We also offer Enrichment Classes for Pre-School through 12th grade on Tuesday mornings for a portion of the school year for an additional fee. You do not have to participate in classes in order to be a part of our support group. Perhaps the greatest benefits from the group are the friendships, the times of encouragement and prayer between Moms, and seeing the Lord use the simple idea of a support group to help us all persevere in this wonderful, yet challenging adventure called homeschooling. May this group remind us of all the joy along the way!
