One of our key distinctive marks as a church is our emphasis on the role of the family. We believe that God has created the family to be the foundational block of all of society, be it a church or culture. It is also our conviction that the Lord ordained that parents (particularly fathers) train up their children in the way they should go.
To be sure, Providence does not styles itself as a "homeschool only" church. However, many of our families do choose home education as their means of discipleship. For this reason we want to make sure that our church friends and family members have access to quality materials for this endeavor.
Many of our families have profited from the materials offered by Vision Forum. VF provides a thoroughly Christian curriculum and, like Providence, has a vision for growing strong families for future generations.
The other two links are for the local homeschool support groups in our area. The Ashland/Richland Homeschool Network is a loosely affiliated bunch. They are mainly connected by an email list where news and events are circulated.
Training Leaders for Christ is stationed in Mansfield and has monthly meetings & events. This group, which is run by some of our members, has much to offer by way of assistance and does require you to become a member.
