“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20–21
I’ve had the privilege of teaching preschoolers at NorthPointe since the early days of our church. Many of the prayers that I’ve had for our NorthPointe kids have come true. Even some of the things I dreamed have come to pass!
When NorthPointe met at Malloch Elementary & Tenaya Middle School, I dreamed of having a permanent classroom that we wouldn’t have to pack and unpack every week. But, even in those borrowed rooms, we were able to share God’s love and truth. When we built our first worship center and moved into portable classrooms we worked excitedly and diligently to put our own NorthPointe touch on the rooms and make them a fun place to learn God’s truth each week. This was an exciting time for our NorthPointe kids and teachers!
When we built our current worship center even bigger dreams were born and realized with our nursery rooms becoming a part of that building. With our Say Yes campaign, I dream that my grandson will have classrooms even beyond my imagination!
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Many of the preschoolers I served are now adults! They may not even remember Teacher Linda but they do remember God’s truth and love they were taught through words and actions. I know this because I see their fruits as they are teaching those truths to the next generation. Oh, what a precious harvest!
