Dear Friends,


1981…do you remember what you were doing then? At Elfinwild, we do! That is the year of the very first class at Elfinwild Church Preschool! Forty years ago, Carolyn Hervey launched this amazing ministry that has touched the lives of so many students and families. Under her leadership, nurturing, and dedication children grew on the inside as well as the outside…and most importantly, in their love and knowledge of Jesus Christ!

We are writing to you in anticipation of a wonderful celebration… no more crayons, playdough, paint, or Eric Carle stories… Carolyn has decided to hang up her smock! As Carolyn retires from Preschool we want to honor her on Sunday, May 30, 2021 at the 11:10am worship service at Elfinwild Presbyterian Church. A reception time will follow worship. Please join us as we give thanks to God for Carolyn’s servant heart and her faithful response to His call on her life.  We will lift her in prayer and ask for God’s continued blessings as this next chapter unfolds.  Even though she will continue to serve the children through Young Child in Worship and other ministries of the Church, we want to acknowledge her devotion to the children, families and staff through the amazing story of the Elfinwild Church Preschool these last 40 years. 

As part of this special day, we would love to shower Carolyn with well wishes and special remembrances. Please help us by jotting a note and return it to the Preschool (either through regular mail or email) or bring it with you, so that it can be included in a memory book that will be put together for her.

Please let us know you will be attending by emailing Preschool at for the reception and registering online at the Church’s website for worship.  We are planning to have worship and the reception outside to accommodate everyone who would like to attend. If the weather does not cooperate, however, worship will be held in the Sanctuary, where space is limited.


In His Love,

The Session of Elfinwild Church and the Elfinwild Church Preschool Board
