Curriculum/Course Guide

Note: Many, if not most, of the youth attending OLGH, are enrolled in “home-schooling.” It behooves us, then, to provide whatever religious/academic instruction for these students that will enhance their education.  Moreover, in making these courses available, we attempt to provide adults with opportunities to further their personal interests.  All courses are provided on an individual (couples) basis, and, in so far as possible, at a time suitable to the student.  These courses are provided in a manner that will enable the student to move at his own pace.  There is no charge for any of these courses, but every student is expected to work in each course as though he were paying tuition.

Pre-Cana Instruction for Persons Preparing for Holy Matrimony: (This church recognizes Sacred Matrimony between only a male and a female.  We do not recognize same sex marriage under any circumstances; nor do we recognize “transgendered” persons whom the State may recognize as having “changed” their gender; it is our belief that gender is determined by God at the time of each person’s birth; no mutilation or alteration of any kind can change what God has determined for each of His children.  (Not less than 6 months in advance is required for preparing for marriage.)
