This is the Metzger's first "official" community outreach project of the school year! We made cookies and delivered them to our local EMT's, who were happy to have the chocolate...and the company!
Weekly Community Outreach Day
This year, we plan on schooling 4 days a week and making Fridays our COMMUNITY OUTREACH DAY! We have really been doing it all summer, but are really just now starting to plan somethingin addition to what we've been doing.We, as North Carolinian homeschoolers, have such freedom to conduct school as we see fit, as long as it complies with NC homeschool laws. And since all our children are 1-2 years ahead of where they are required to be age-wise, it allows us the freedom to take days off when we can enjoy the outdoors OR donate our time to helping others - through community service!
Galatians 5:13 says, "You, my brothers, were called to befree. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love."
Just as the above verse says, we have the freedom in our method of homeschooling to do much. We could waste our time on selfish desires OR we could spend one day a week serving others in love. We have chosen to donate one day a week for the Lord's work....to serve others as He served others on earth!
