Are you looking for support, encouragement, instruction, and interaction with other like minded families?
Eastern DuPage for Godly Education (EDGE) and their Friday co-op group Gym and Enrichment (G&E) were founded over seventeen years ago with that very purpose in mind. EDGE began as a small gathering of families who met for gym activities, but has since expanded to offer enrichment classes such as art, tumbling, dance, science and writing. Our group is made up of Christian homeschooling parents and their children who volunteer their time and talents, collectively pooling their abilities so that many may benefit from their instruction.
In the past EDGE has held monthly large group meetings, project fairs, graduation ceremonies and talent shows. As of late our more active arm has been G&E (Gym & Enrichment Friday Co-op). We are a group of approximately 30 families with 80+ children who meet at a church in west Wheaton each Friday during the school year and hold a full day of classes: 2 periods in the morning, assembly and lunch, then 2 more periods in the afternoon. For more information check out the Gym and Enrichment page.
We believe that:
The Bible is the source of all truth and in its original manuscript is the inspired and infallible Word of God.
From all eternity, God has existed in three person: God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Each man willfully and naturally violates the laws of God, and is therefore under His condemnation.
Jesus Christ, being both God and man, yet without sin, took the penalty of our sins upon Himself, once for all time, through His death on the cross, and that His subsequent resurrection proved His authority over life and death.
Only by the personal acceptance of His death and resurrection is each man given the opportunity to become reconciled to God, obtaining eternal life in His presence.
