Information About Our Program
The ministry of SEEK was born from the desire to provide support and encouragement for home schooling mothers through weekly Bible study and fellowship. In addition, SEEK also provides enrichment classes for homeschooled children that are educational in nature and enhance the learning that is already taking place in the home. For more details about SEEK, read the SEEK Department Descriptions.
- Location: Colonial Baptist Church: 6051 Tryon Rd; Cary, NC 27518
- Time: 9 AM to 12:15 PM
- Days: Thursday
- 13 Week commitment
- Each morning begins with an opening assembly, which includes praise songs and a short devotion given by one of Colonial’s pastors.
- Two 70-minute group sessions are offered each Thursday.
All classes offered are supplemental to what is being taught in the home and are meant for enrichment purposes only. Parents are responsible for making sure their participation in SEEK complies with state law governing home schools. The classes offered vary from semester to semester, and are determined by the willingness of SEEK members to lead. Members/parents lead most of the groups. However, we also have people who volunteer their time and talents to lead.
- SEEK is a cooperative, the weekly attendance and service of one parent is required in order for a family to remain in good standing and be eligible for future participation.
- At least one parent is required to remain on campus while SEEK is meeting and to serve as a class leader, assistant, escort, dismissal attendant, floater or nursery worker during one of the two 70 minute sessions.
- Since SEEK primarily exists so that homeschool mothers can take part in a Bible Study, all members are required to participate in a study at least one semester/school year. All new members (and returning members that have not participated in SEEK for more than two semesters) must participate in a Bible Study or Support Group their first semester in the program.
- There is a $15 registration fee per person to participate in the program. This applies to every individual attending on Thursday mornings.
- There is a $75 cap per family. Therefore, families with more than five family members attending will only be charged a $15 registration fee/person for the first five family members.
- Each class costs between $10 to $75. Each student takes two classes.
- The nursery/preschool fee for children under 5 years old is $20 per semester.
- All class and nursery/preschool fees are used to purchase curriculum and materials that will be needed for each child.
