Fourth Grade

Yes, that's me!
I am Mrs. Baxley, and I enjoy the privilege of teaching here at Grace.


A miraculous thing happened in my life when I was only eight years old. I was away at a Christian camp. It was there that I heard the wonderful gospel message of how Jesus took my place on Calvary. He willingly gave His life so that I could have eternal life. I can still remember walking down the sawdust aisle of the meeting hall to receive Christ as my personal Savior.

That was many years ago. Many things have happened in my life since then, but God has been faithful. His promise to us is that He will never leave us nor forsake us. What a blessing to know that when there are times we feel alone, God is always there!


An exciting year awaits those entering Fourth Grade. Preparations have been made, rooms have been completed, and prayers have gone up daily.

Our goal this year is to become more like Christ. The classroom has been decorated in insects. The bee is a social insect working with one another to survive. It must nurture the young to maturity. We, as Christians, must be united in "one accord" working together. The ladybug is an insect that is very helpful to farmers. It eats the aphids that would destroy their crops. We could say the ladybug is a friend to the farmer. We want to learn to work well with one another and to be friendly.


Our key verses this year are found in the book of Proverbs:
Proverbs 16:17
"The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul."



"Rev It Up! Full Throttle for God!"



As you prepare for the school year, here are some things you can do that will help you to become more like Christ.
1. DAILY search to see if there is sin you need to confess, then CONFESS it!
2. DAILY pray and seek God's will for your life, then OBEY!
3. DAILY read God's Word to see what promises He has for you, then CLAIM them!
4. DAILY seek someone to share the gospel with, then SHARE it!
