“Say yes to new adventures”

RUMC Celebration Of Monument Preschool

Ms. Kathan (Hartle) is retiring after 25 years as the Director of Monument Preschool.  She has been here from the very beginning supporting and building onto RUMC’s mission of providing the community with a top-quality preschool in a spiritual setting.  Kathan will be recognized at both worship services on Sunday, September 24..

At that time, we will also introduce Ms. Julie who is taking over as Monument Preschool’s Director and ask for God’s blessings on her work as she continues with this important RUMC outreach into our community.

Both ladies will be available for you to say “Thank You” during Fellowship Time between services; however, in order to give us a bit more time, we are inviting all church members and any former parents/ students who attended Monument Preschool to attend an informal potluck after the 11:00am church service.

PLEASE BRING A DISH TO SHARE as many hands make light work.  We will provide drinks, plates, silverware, and napkins.  If you have pictures to share or stories to tell, please bring them too as we look back on 25 years and toward the future.

If you are unable to attend, please feel free to send a “retirement” note to the church office, and we will be sure to get it to Kathan.


Monument Preschool is based on the belief

that children have the right to a respectful, nurturing,

and safe environment where they can feel comfortable and secure.

We recognize that each child is an individual and must be allowed to develop at his or her own pace.  Christian values such as love, hope, trust, self-esteem, kindness, honesty, cooperation and appreciation are emphasized.  Redlands United Methodist Church believes that each child is a unique child of God and should be given every opportunity for spiritual growth.  If you have questions or are interested, please contact Julie Hearing at or 970-245-1478.
