Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Sep 27, Sep 29, & Oct. 1, Bham: Greek Orthodox Study

Everest Family Church
World Culture & Religion Series

September - Orthodox Religion (Christian)

We will combine the Greek Festival (sponsored by the Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral) with an education in the Orthodox religion. There is more than one church in the Orthodox tradition: the most common being Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox. These churches differ mostly in culture, so we will check out the Greek culture in addition to the Orthodox Church. It would be great if you could come to all three events, but at least try to come to the October 1st event as we will learn the most about the Orthodox religion from that event. I will send out readings on the religion prior to the events. From these, students should compile questions to be pre-submitted to the pastoral assistant. Sign-up is required at the October 1 event and suggested for the other events. Contact Danielle at 4neerdowells@gmail.com

September 27 - Greek Festival and church tour at Holy Trinity Cathedral Greek Orthodox Church on at 1:00 PM. 
September 29 - Divine Liturgy 
October 1 - 2:00 - Meet with an Orthodox Pastoral Assistant and learn more about the Orthodox religion.
