EUM Church is hosting an Open House to celebrate the 38 years that EUM Christian Preschool served the community. The celebration will be on Sunday, November 15 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at the Worship Center located at 1451 Sater Street. Everyone is invited to attend and all past students, parents, and teachers are invited to share a memory or a joyful story, as we share milestones and pictures from the past.

EUM Christian Preschool was started by Ruth Ann Lockhart in 1978 with a small number of students. The original mission of the preschool was to touch little lives academically and socially and prepare them for kindergarten; however, over the years, the program began to grow and to challenge children socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually. EUM Church held the preschool in the highest regard by offering a quality early childhood education that was affordable and all encompassing. From start to finish, an entire theme based day was focused on learning not only academics such as letters, phonics, numbers, counting, sign language, and more, but Biblical truth and life lessons were also taught.

During the 38 years the preschool was in existence, students took part in Operation Christmas Child Shoebox project, had pen pals, exchanged letters and colorings to many Veterans, participated in Pizza Hut Book It, gave afghans to a birthing center, made crafts for shut-ins in the church family, Christmas caroled in downtown Greenville, donated to FISH food bank and so much more. The students went on field trips to places such as Brumbaugh’s Fruit Farm, Shawnee Prairie, local farms, Idle Hour Ranch, Greenville Public Library, Greenville Fire Department, and field day at South Park.

EUM Church is grateful for the community support given to EUM Christian Preschool for the past 38 years. Without this support, the preschool could not have had such a lasting impact or influenced over a thousand students and families.
