It's Summer, But...

You can still plan for the future!
Are you/your teen interested in being part of a Speech and Debate club specifically for Christian homeschoolers? The target age group is 13-18 years, though they may also be an opportunity for a "junior "club.
If you answered "Yes!" then mark your calendar for July 10th from 12:00-3:00pm and meet with other interested parties at The Bridge Christian Fellowship in Oak Harbor (552 W Troxell Rd, Oak Harbor, WA 98277).

Apologetics Forum in December

Are you interested in giving your children some exposure to apologetics?

October Meeting

Hello, Fall!
We'll have our October meeting on Thursday the 6th at 7:00 pm.
This month we'll be discussing a few different things!
  • How to encourage and help dads be involved with our kids' educations in big and little ways.  
  • Bring a list of movie titles that are good for the whole family to watch.
  • If we have time, we’ll also share local family getaways for the winter.  Day trips or overnights, whatever you have discovered and enjoyed.
 As always there will be opportunity to ask ANY questions about anything.  We are a casual group that is here to help you along in homeschooling and parenting.

Gearing Up for the Fall!

Lots of things around Anacortes are starting back up after the summer break. Read on for details about some things that might interest you! There are many more things going on (swim lessons, park and rec programs, school sports, community classes, etc.) - this list is NOT exhaustive.
