HOME EDUCATORS AT GROVE (HEAG)
OUR GROUP NAME IS CHANGING! Over the last five years Home Educators at Grove has developed into a much broader outreach than simply a support group, through providing encouragement, support, resources, and a multitude of activities for over 400 families. Our leadership has come to realize that our name simply doesn’t represent who we are. HEAG has always been a home school support group that has reached out pass the walls of Grove. We have come to recognize that our heartbeat is for the homeschooling community as a whole, ministering to families through the vehicle of home education. Simply put, our name needs to represent our vision. As of July, Home Educators at Grove’s name, website and Facebook will be changing to:
HOMESCHOOL FAMILY CONNECTION (HSFC) 

A Ministry of Grove Avenue Baptist Church
Support, Resources, and Activities for the Homeschooling Family
