Eighth Annual Agape Egg Hunt, Games, & Picnic

 —

Northeast Creek Park, 910 Corbin Road, Jacksonville, NC

Great fun for all ages. EGGS-actly what we all need to kick off our spring season. This is one of our favorite events of the year! There will be an egg hunt and themed games and crafts. Each family is asked to bring ONE DOZEN PLASTIC EGGS for EACH CHILD. Don't forget to bring baskets or buckets for your children for the egg hunt. Also, please bring a picnic of snacks for your family. "HOPPING" to see you there!

  1. Fill TWELVE plastic eggs with candy/treats/coins etc for each child that you have participating (no chocolate, please).
  2. Tape the eggs CLOSED so they can't accidentally pop open.
  3. CLEARLY number each of the eggs from 1 through 12. Make sure the numbers are easy to read (Put a line under your 6 and 9 if they look alike).
  4. Bring the already prepared eggs to the hunt!

Doing these steps ahead of time will allow the festivities to begin more quickly and run much more smoothly. Thank you!

Prizes for the egg hunt will be awarded in the following age categories:
2-4
5-7
8-10
11-13
*14 & up

Agape C.O.R.E. Membership (New)

Homeschoolers in our area have enjoyed the flexible structure of Agape Leadership Development and our patron list has grown to 400+ families over the last decade.  During the 2012-2013 school year, it became clear that many of Agape's homeschool families were looking for an additional option that would provide a closer connection with each other and a stronger sense of community.  This has resulted in the creation of Agape C.O.R.E. (Centered on Relationships and Encouragement). C.O.R.E. membership is available to families that actively homeschool students from Kindergarten to graduation.  Annual C.O.R.E. membership is $25 per family with a calendar year that runs August 1st through July 31st.  Benefits for C.O.R.E. members are:

• Monthly field trips and specialized activities (see the CORE Calendar),
• Semi-monthly park days,
• Annual group testing,
• Access to a private Facebook group,
• Monthly activities/events for K-2nd grade (called Primary Pals),
• Semi-monthly activities/events for teenagers (called F.L.O.C.—Future Leaders of Our Communities),
• Monthly moms’ nights,
• Free admission to Agape seminars,
• Annual promotion & graduation ceremony
• Access to special pages on the Agape website with helpful homeschool information.

Want to join C.O.R.E.?  Follow these six easy steps (all six MUST be completed):
1.  Fill in the registration form (on the right) on this page. 
2.  Then send your $25.00 fee (either mail check or pay via PayPal on the [Fee$] page).
3.  When we receive your fee, we'll notify you via e-mail to move onto Step 4. (Please wait for the confirmation e-mail before moving onto Step 4.)
4.  Once you receive the e-mail, you can complete the registration on the CORE Calendar or other protected pages.
5.  After you finish that (second) registration form, the website will automatically generate a confirmation e-mail.
6.  To complete the process, you MUST respond to the automatically-generated e-mail from the website.

    Kay--On September 1st, the Facebook group was changed to be for C.O.R.E. members only. We sent out several notifications and pinned a notification on the group in hopes that no one would miss the information about the change. Sorry you missed that change.

    Hey Guys, I can't get into the core calendar. It says I have to enter my email address and password-which it says are incorrect. I then ask for it, to send me a new password and it says my email address is invalid and not registered on the site. So I tried to register a new account and it says that someone else is already using my email address?? I'm lost. Please help.

    Hi, I have been thinking about making the switch from public to home school. I have two girls currently in 2nd and 3rd grade. My oldest is ADHD and I'm afraid she falling between the cracks and not getting the one on one attention she needs to really excel. I would love to get more information on what it would take to make the transition. My email is CRochat1202@gmail.com Any information you could give me to get this process started or to point me in the right direction would be greatly apreciated. Thank you!
