Affirm and Encourage Parents
Strengthen Family Relationships

Reach Out to Serve Communities

Mission Statement:

HFHG-EC is a parent-run home school ministry through which parents pool their resources and talents to expose children to fun and educational classes and activities.

HFHG-EC is distinctly Christian in nature but has an open membership to any who will respect that distinction.

HFHG-EC is here to provide affordable, alternative learning opportunities and unique experiences that a larger group affords.

HFHG-EC does not exist to provide complete education for home-schooled children but to enrich established home school programs through tutoring.

HFHG-EC will limit class size to ensure a small group atmosphere and to keep the instruction academically challenging.

HFHG-EC provides for small group instruction in accordance with its established annual class schedule and does not sanction individual tutoring, instruction, or lessons for fee at the cooperative site.

HFHG-EC is here to encourage and empower homeschool families to have confidence to teach their own at home, and as an opportunity for homeschool parents to network with each other for support.

Statement of Faith

We believe that Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, the final authority for faith and life. II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21

We believe that there is one God who exists eternally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30

We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s only Son. John 3:16

We believe that only Jesus Christ the Son lived a life without sin. All other people are sinners in need of salvation. Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26: Romans 3:23-24

We believe that Christ came to earth as a baby, born of a virgin, taking on the form of man without ceasing to be God, to be crucified in order to pay the penalty for our sins. Matthew 1:23;Isaiah 53:5,6; Ephesians 1:7

We believe that Christ died, was buried and then rose on the third day and ascended to Heaven. I Corinthians 15:3, 4; John 11:25: Luke 24:7

We believe that salvation is the gift of God given to men by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. John 3:16–19; John 5:24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8,9; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5

We believe in the traditional family, which is constantly under attack from the world today. We believe in traditional morality — purity before marriage and mutual faithfulness in marriage. I Corinthians 7:2; Ephesians 5:3; I Thessalonians 4:3

We believe in the sanctity of life (each child is a gift from God whose life begins at conception) and the protection of our children both before and after birth. Matthew 18:5,6; Mark 9:42; Luke 17:2 7/27/07

All parents involved with the co-op will be required to sign, acknowledging their agreement, with the Statement of Faith.
