Elaine Baeumler

Parent's Day Out Director

Born in Buffalo, NY I found my way to Kansas City via Washington, DC and New Orleans. I have been a member of Pine Ridge since 1993 and have served in many capacities. I am an elder, served on fellowship, sang in chancel choir and taught Sunday School.

Children have always been an important part of my life and was one of the reasons for choosing secondary education as my major in college. But the little ones have always pulled the strings of my heart! So, I continued to teach Sunday School as my career took a different direction. Instead of teaching high school I taught adults and eventually found my way to TWA where I was quite happy!

After retiring I became a PDO volunteer and read to the kiddos twice a week. I was asked to sub a few times and I was hooked! I have been the lead teacher in the 4-5 year old room for the past 6 years.

PDO is a wonderful outreach ministry of Pine Ridge! Initially started 20 plus years ago it has grown to be more than a parent’s day out! We have many special events and help our kiddos love to learn! We are blessed by many families and pray that we have blessed them as well!

Come join us as we love, pray and learn as Jesus Christ leads us to do! We are always looking for volunteers, teachers and new kiddos to join! My door is always open!
