Pumpkin Patch

Leaders: Ken and Dianne McCleary

THANKS TO EVERYONE IN OUR COMMUNITY

FOR MAKING THIS THE BEST PUMPIN PATCH EVER!

SEE YOU AT THE PUMPKIN PATCH NEXT YEAR!

 

Look below for ways in which you can help with this wonderful ministry!

Our Pumpkin Patch fundraiser is held annually to benefit local missions and outreach.  All money raised goes toward the mission/outreach project selected for each year.

You can be a part of the Pumpkin Patch in many ways.

  1. Hay bales.  Hay bales are needed to help decorate the Patch.  You can help by making a donation toward the purchase of hay bales.  You can volunteer your pick-up truck and/or your strong back to help in picking up and setting out the hay bales in October.
  2. Set-up.  Several volunteers are needed to set up the hay bales, fencing and decorations for the patch prior to the arrival of the pumpkins.
  3. Unload.  We need a large number of people to unload the tractor-trailer when it arrives.  Watch our website for announcements about when the pumpkins will arrive.
  4. Work at the Patch.  This volunteer opportunity includes selling pumpkins, taking pictures for families (as needed), removing rotten pumpkins from the patch, reorganizing/consolidating the pumpkins as they sell, and most importantly, being the face of the church to the public.  Be welcoming and friendly!  There will be materials with information about the church and church activities for volunteers to give to the public, whether or not they buy any pumpkins.
  5. Storytelling.  We always have daycares/preschools bringing their little ones to the Pumpkin Patch.  We plan special activities for them when they make arrangements in advance, including storytelling and mini science lessons using pumpkins.
  6. Clean-up.  We need volunteers to help clean-up the patch on Halloween evening.  The Patch needs to be cleaned up and put away to remove temptation for any Halloween tricksters who may be in the area on that evening.
  7. New!!  We are looking for ways to improve the ministry of the Pumpkin Patch for our guests.  If you have an idea for a game, new decoration, etc. for the patch, please let us know through the email link above.

Use the email link above to sign up to be a part of this year's Pumpkin Patch!!

Please include your name, contact information, and the way(s) in which you are able to help!
