Thursday School

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." - Ephesians 2:10

L.I.N.K. offers two, ten-week semesters of cooperative academic and enrichment classes on Thursday mornings (8:45 AM - 12:00 PM) which we refer to as Thursday School. Participation in Thursday School is optional. We are all about learning, enhancing our individual homeschool programs, networking with other parents, and giving our kids unique experiences that a larger group affords. We meet at Alton Bible Church in Lowell, Michigan, on the corner of Lincoln Lake and 3 Mile, but we serve families from as far away as Clarksville and Greenville.

L.I.N.K.'s Thursday School only works through a cooperative effort. An adult from each family is expected to teach or assist with two classes each semester, according to their gifts and abilities. While they usually still choose to teach, members holding Board and leadership positions are not required to teach because of the scope of their responsibilities. Third parties are sometimes brought in to teach their particular expertise. Additionally, each adult generally has one "free" class hour to get to know the other parents, work on their own lesson plans, etc. Parents are required to remain onsite at Alton Bible Church during all three class hours.

The success of Thursday School is contingent upon everyone plugging in their God-given gifts and abilities where they best fit. In so doing we are all blessed, especially our children who are afforded opportunities for education or enrichment in areas their parents might not otherwise be able to offer. Many of our strong parent friendships have developed through working together to offer wonderful classes.

Please note that our Thursday School classes are intended to supplement member's homeschool curriculum, not replace it.
