We’ve got a great opportunity as homeschoolers to receive some help with the high cost of homeschool curriculum. The folks at Hope 94.3 FM understand the challenges we face as we strive to follow the admonitions of Deuteronomy 6:4-9 endeavoring to diligently teach our children to love the Lord, understand and follow His Word, and live in the world He created. Since we are obligated to gather our own books and learning materials, our family budgets can take quite a hit.
During the month of July, our local Christian radio station, Hope 94.3 FM, wants to remind listeners in Hartshorne, Haileyville, and McAlester that this country was founded on the Judeo-Christian principles of God’s Word. Between music sweeps, homeschooled children will quote passages from some of the important documents written during our nation’s formative years, such as the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
and the Preamble to the Constitution:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
If you and your homeschooled children can help find sponsors for these segments, Hope 94.3 will share the proceeds with you for use in paying for homeschool curriculum and learning tools. Ten spots cost $100. Sponsors can sign up for more or less, but for every $100 you collect, Hope 94.3 will give you $45 for your homeschool budget. Sponsors may be local businesses, churches, civic organizations, families, or individuals. They will be recognized at the beginning and end of each spot, so tell them to be listening at 94.3 FM or online at www.hope943.com. The first spots will begin airing July 1st, and they will continue throughout the month in celebration of the blessed liberty we enjoy as citizens of the United States of America.
Sponsorship forms will be available here at gowenfaithassembly.org very soon. Feel free to print them as needed. Forms and funds need to be submitted ASAP but no later than July 13th. If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just give us a call at 918-297-3032. Be sure to leave a message if I’m not where I can answer right away.
May God bless you for your commitment to homeschooling!
