Co-op Connections is a made up of homeschooling families who desire to provide shared educational opportunities and support in our homeschooling journey.
We meet every other Tuesday and each co-op session runs from 9:15 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. We begin with an opening for all families at 9:15 and then begin classes at 9:30. Three one-hour class periods are offered for students ages 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, and 12+. Nursery is provided for children ages 2 and under. Our classes have a broad scope of topics in language arts, science, history, art, gym and life-skills.
Each parent is responsible to teach one class, serve as a helper in a second class, and be part of a parent meeting during a third class time. Parent meeting is a time of prayer, sharing and encouragement as homeschooling parents. New parents are not required to teach a class the first semester they join co-op. They will serve as helpers in two class periods instead.
We trust each member to make wise decisions about their own health and keep others’ health in mind as we meet. If a family member is sick with a contagious illness, please keep your family home from co-op that day. Masks will be optional for the entire semester. We will respect the decisions of all members regarding the wearing or not-wearing of masks.

Our Statement of Faith
By joining Co-op Connections, you are acknowledging that we operate by this system of Biblical values.
A) The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes completed and final revelation. The Bible, in its original autograph, is without error in whole and in part, including theological concepts as well as geographical and historical details.
B) God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God come in human flesh, being fully God and fully man except without sin.
C) All men are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act; and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation. The central purpose of this coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man’s sin through His substitutionary death on the cross–the successful accomplishment of this was attested to by His subsequent visible, bodily resurrection.
D) Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.
E) Knowledge of Jesus Christ and the Bible is essential to proper spiritual, mental, social, and physical growth.
F) The Holy Spirit indwells each Christian and is significant in his education by bringing conviction of sin, revealing Christ’s glory, and guiding each believer into all truth.
G) Moral standards and a value system consistent with the Bible best prepare a student for fulfilling his responsibilities as a citizen of our nation.
H) Man’s purpose in life is to render glory to God in all things, for he was created to have dominion over the creation, to care for it, to replenish it, and to subdue it.
