LINK Membership

LINK offers a wide variety of field trips and special events, in addition to our Thursday School co-op classes! Special events vary, but often include monthly Moms Night Outs, TeenLINK activities (ages 13+), holiday parties, science and history fairs, and Track & Field Day. We try to coordinate regular field trips that include some "just for fun" and others more academic in nature. To participate in LINK field trips and special events you only need to meet general membership requirements.

We are blessed by each of our LINK member families. Each brings their own unique personalities, gifts, and abilities.
  • To obtain and maintain membership in LINK, families are required to apply using the forms posted on this website and be in agreement with our Statement of Faith, which is also posted on this website. Membership is subject to board approval after references have been called. The LINK board retains the right to revoke membership of any family.

  • The $20 annual membership fee is due at the time of Member Application. If you are applying after January 1st, the membership fee is prorated to $10. If you are applying after June 1st, the $20 membership fee will cover the remainder of the current year and the full following year (September 1st - August 31st) if your application is accepted.
  • Membership is limited to 55 families. Thursday School is limited to 35 families.

  • Membership fees and tuition must be kept current (A minimum of $20 is due at the time of Thursday School registration. The remaining balance is due by the first day of class).

  • Membership in LINK requires the participation of at least one legal parent. The children participating must also be homeschooled.

  • LINK is a cooperative support group. Families must fulfill their contribution obligations including to help coordinate at least one special event, and the request to plan or co-plan one field trip each year. (Some volunteer functions may fulfill the special event obligation.)
  • If participating in Thursday School, each family must help with teaching/assisting and clean-up. A parent must remain onsite at Alton Bible Church during all three class hours.

  • The Annual Meeting which is held in May of each year must be attended by at least one adult family member.
