Miss Thompson's 3rd/4th Grade Class
Welcome to my class page. We have had a great start to the year. I hope the information on this page will help you as we work together in this learning experience. You may contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
I grew up attending a Methodist church in Logansport, Indiana. From the time I was born my parents had our family in church every time the doors were open. My mother taught me from the time I can remember that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died on the cross for our sins, and that the Bible is the true Word of God. I believed what she taught me. Our church, however, did not ever mention a personal relationship with Christ that came as a result of accepting Christ’s payment personally.
When I was in high school, a couple came to our church to teach the high school Sunday School class. They were “born again” Christians. We attended evangelistic meetings where we were encouraged to come forward and accept Christ. This was a difficult concept for me, because I thought I already believed in Christ. The Lord brought other people and family members into my life who understood this personal relationship. I came to church in Indianapolis the summer before my senior year at Purdue University.
That was the first experience I had in a Bible-believing church, Northeast Baptist Church (Colonial Hills Baptist Church today). My cousin, Dr. Richard Hand was attending at that time. Through preaching by Dr. Heller and Bible study in Sunday School I learned that “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” and “but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:”
In July of 1975 I knelt beside my bed and asked the Lord to forgive my sin and be the Lord of my life. I was baptized the following May. He has been faithful to lead me every step of the way since that day.
The church was going to start Colonial Christian School, beginning with pre-school and kindergarten in the fall of 1976. Dr. Hand would be the administrator. I was asked to teach, along with a two other ladies. By the time school started, for various reasons, I ended up being the only teacher. We had 15 students the first year…seven four-year-olds and 8 kindergarteners. It has been my privilege to point young hearts toward God; instruct young minds toward truth; and direct young lives toward success these last 37 years. I cannot think of a better way or place to have spent my life. I marvel at the goodness of our great God in leading me here. My life teaching verse is found in John 15:5 “…for without me ye can do nothing.”
