But not only will we be supporting these outstanding local charities, but we will also be engaging with our community and providing an opportunity for our congregation to fellowship and serve together.  Here’s what you can do:

  1. Sign up here to sell pumpkins at one of our two-hour shifts.  Sign-up as a family, partner with a friend or neighbor, or sign-up by yourself and meet a new friend.  It is super simple to do, all instructions will be provided, and it is guaranteed fun and rewarding experience!
  2. Join us for all the activities in the patch! (See below)

Sign Up!

Our Pumpkin Patch promises to be a powerful presence in our community and through our mission work. As if that weren’t enough, we have free long-sleeve Pumpkin Patch Staff shirts for the first 50 people who sign-up to volunteer!
 
We look forward to seeing you in “the Patch”!
