Ah, the previledges of membership…
Time savings, money saving, efficiency, no stress, already planned events, gatherings and travel. We have a membership that’s right for you and yours and the most surprising part is that there’s no facilities or capital planning expenses to cover because we have it covered. At this time we do not have a dedicated facility and make excellent use of the multitude of available space within your market, and by that we mean, local spaces and places. From the library meeting rooms to the beautiful warm banquet space nestled in the nearby eatery, an oceanside conference center, the covered picnic area at the magnificent nature preserve, the zoo and even the forestry center, we ensure that your investment is optimized by keeping costs low and reasonable.
Just show up, and enjoy. Alright, we ALL know there’s always more to it than meets the eyes. But what does membership include. Well, it doesn’t always include parking, so well, there’s that.
Registration Fee. There is a one-time $25 registration fee for each individual. Each parent or guardian and any person attending over the age of 18 will be background checked before approval. Our other costs are for facilitating communication and the time it takes to manage all of the behind the scenes organization to ensure your safety and that your family feels welcome, included and important because you are. And for good measure, there’s also a T-Shirt!
Everyone is welcome but remember, we are faith based and we’re taking the Bible seriously, so get ready. We are going to live by the Word through the grace of God.
So let’s talk about what we are and what we are not.
We are a social club for homeschool families that meets once a week for multiple consecutive weeks in a row over two sessions throughout the year with a summer schedule for non-membership park and event gatherings.
Designed to bring you and yours closer to the image of our Lord and Savior, His work and your submission to what He desires of you, personally.
A social club that provides a comprehensive event schedule that is offered in two seasons, Fall and Winter/Spring with Summer park gatherings planned.
These gatherings are pre planned but the entrance fees for your crew are up to you and are not included in the membership. Some members may decide to not participate or your family may be out of town so these costs are not incorporated to our membership fee.
Membership fees are charged monthly and you may quit at any time. With no deactivation fee. Your Membership fee will transact on the last day of the prior month for which the fee is regarding. The example is that your September dues will transact on the last day of the prior month, so August 31st you will be charged.
A 7-day notice of cancellation is required prior to the last day of the month or your fee will transact for the following month.
WHAT WE ARE NOT:
We are not a school.
We are not an academic program.
We are not a co-op. You will never be asked to teach, buy supplies, baby sit, clean bathrooms, run the nursury, plan and execute an event. None of it.
We have no curriculum but we will distribute Bible verses at each of the Club Jesus gatherings.
We are not a place to network for your business purposes. We are a social club for families and exist for our mission and objectives and not solicitations. Our member emails are to never be compromised or used to garner support for your business oportunity, party, event, gathering or cause.
We do not promote yoga, or teen dating, Star Wars, Pokemon, Disney, NERF guns, video games or new “evangelical movements” etc., etc. ad nauseum. These things we find make some nauseated and expect your respect. We will never promote these and hope that you also will not during our gathering time. Please do not bring any relative items to gatherings as well as knives real or plastic, weaponry, including numchucks, picks, tools etc. And finally, if you’re packing, or concealed carry, we think that’s marvelous. Let us know so we know who is the go to.
Any opinions of our practices or rules of the road are fabulously yours, and yours alone so keep them to yourself as we want you to own them, as we will own ours as well. We will keep bringing the activities sans agenda or tainted by the culture and your part is to keep showing up because you and /or yours may be the most important friend someone ever has!
