The Christian Family Learning Co-op in Northville

The Christian Family Learning Co-op (CFLC) – a small family-oriented co-op that started in September, 2007 — has openings for the Fall 2012 session.

The co-op meets in Northville on Thursdays from 2:45 – 7:45 pm (a portion of the classes are held in the evening to allow working parents to be included.) In addition, the co-op offers the opportunity for parents and children to form close friendships, share God’s gifts with each other, and enjoy each other’s company through various activities together. Fellowship opportunities are also planned through the summer.

The CFLC includes time for group devotion and prayer, 3 class hours, a workshop where all co-op students participate in a mix of learning, creativity and fellowship activities, and a dinner hour where all family members are invited to join and eat as a group.

Class offerings are determined each year through a participatory democratic process — asking the kids what classes they would like to take and asking the parents what classes they would like to offer. ¬†Classes that receive the most interest are selected and offered. Please note that families that join now will be able to participate in the class-selection process for fall.
