Socialization opportunities with same-age peers
Exposure to curricula, resources, and ideas from other homeschoolers
Structure and direction for the homeschool
Extra-curricular activity options
Emotional support from other homeschoolers
“Traditional” schooling benefits such as experiencing a classroom setting, diplomas, dances such as prom, and graduation ceremonies
In addition to the groups and state resources listed in our local homeschool database (find them by clicking your state below and use the submenu to navigate to specific types of groups/activities), there are many other ways to find community as a homeschooler.
Maybe the type of community you are looking for doesn’t exist in your area and you are thinking about starting your own co-op—once you have all of the necessary requirements, submit your local homeschooling group to our database so people near you can find your new co-op or homeschooling group!
Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, whether you live in a city or rural area, whether your kids are just hitting school age or about to graduate, there is homeschooling encouragement and support to be found in community.
Our mission is to celebrate the greatness of God, connect to one another and commit to God’s mission (below is a short explanation of each piece).
Because this is our mission statement, we want to emphasize 3 environments for people to plug into: worship (celebrate),small groups (connect),and ministry (commit).
Expressing our love to God in worship
God is so big and wonderful; therefore, we gather each week to celebrate His greatness, to learn more about Him, and to better understand His design for our lives.
The worship message is very similar and focuses on how we can apply the Bible to our daily lives.
Enjoying community through small groups
Relationships are so important to us at Oak Grove.
We believe that everyone needs a place where they can enjoy community with others. Therefore, we have groups for all ages at Oak Grove.
Some of these groups meet on Sunday mornings and others meet during the week.
These groups study the Bible, pray for each other, serve together, and enjoy hanging out together.
Engaging the world with God’s love
Each person is uniquely shaped to serve God and others. We all have various gifts, abilities and passions. So we have hundreds of ministry opportunities at Oak Grove for people to plug into. We have ministries for all ages (preschool, children, youth, college, adults, and mature adults) and ministry opportunities for everyone.
Oak Grove provides many ways to serve the community:
- Mission trips (domestic and abroad)
- Serving the homelessHelping Habitat for Humanity
- Visiting the elderly
- Community events such as our Easter Block Party, Harvest Festival, and The Living Christmas Tree.
