High School Discipleship
Discipleship is designed for high schoolers to meet in a small group setting to promote faith, fun, and fellowship through discussion, theme nights, and games. The materials we use are designed to help arm our teens with the skills and information they need to stand for Christ in a world that is hostile to Him. Our group meets bi-monthly in Oakley.

Homeschool Harvesters
The Homechool Harvesters grow yummy vegetables and learn about gardening at the Smith Farm (400 Diablo Road) in Brentwood. The cost is $40 per family. The group meets Friday mornings beginning when the rains stop--usually late April into early May and ends in October with a tomato fight. Families should come prepared for hard work during the hot summer with the rewards of fresh produce beginning in late June to October. Younger children need to be properly supervised (work with a parent) as this is a working farm with lots of animals and equipment.
