Welcome to Linworth Homeschool Ministry!

 

Linworth Homeschool Ministry (LHM) is a Christian cooperative homeschool support group in Columbus, Ohio. As a ministry of Linworth Road Church, LHM is rich with enthusiastic leaders, with groups geared for students who are in kindergarten (and five years old as of September 1st of that school year) through high school. Growth opportunities abound through field trips, special events, and so much more! LHM meets from 8:45 am to noon for younger grades and weekly for high school on the first two Fridays of the month. Feel free to pack a lunch and eat with others from 12:00 to 12:30!

Our mission at Linworth Homeschool Ministry is to support member families who home-educate as they raise their children to their full potential as devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  (Matthew 28:19, 20)

LHM exists to provide supplemental education, extra-curricular, social, and ministry opportunities for LHM students as well as provide support and encouragement to homeschool families.
