Master’s Hand Christian School (MHCS) is a ministry of Faith Baptist Church in Moulton, Alabama (http://www.fbcma.com/).
As a ministry of Faith Baptist Church, MHCS’ goal is to provide an opportunity for home educators to fulfill their mission as parents to carry out God’s direction stated in Deuteronomy 6:5-9. 24-25 (NIV Translation):
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates…The Lord commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the Lord our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today. And if we are careful to obey all this law before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness.”
MHCS began when 6 home schooling mothers, all members of Westmeade Baptist Church, began meeting in early 2004 to discuss the possibility of beginning a support group that would not only provide legal covering for home school families in the area, but also offer co-op classes, field trips, and other extracurricular activities. After several months of meetings and planning, this new ministry was presented to the church by Dr. Scotty Hogan, pastor, in April 2004. It was approved and MHCS officially began.
MHCS opened its membership to the local home schooling community for the 2004-2005 school year and has continued to grow through God’s immense blessing to its current enrollment of over 200 families. MHCS offers legal covering to home school families in accordance to the Church School Option under Alabama State Law. MHCS also offers its members weekly co-op classes for all ages, field trips, annual SAT testing, school pictures and yearbook, information on all aspects of home schooling, a kindergarten graduation ceremony, annual art, history, and science fairs, and many other opportunities for local home school families. MHCS offers high school students a banquet for 7th—12th grades, high school diplomas and transcripts, and a high school graduation ceremony.
