Over the past 6 years our Pumpkin Patch has grown to be a beloved tradition both in our church and in our community. This year I feel the Patch held special significance for us all because it was very emotionally uplifting. Hosting the Patch gave our church members an opportunity to come on campus again and be part of a church activity and it gave our interim ministers an opportunity to meet some of our church folk face to face. It also gave the neighborhood a very needed and enjoyed fall tradition for which we received many heartfelt thanks from all who visited our Patch.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Pumpkin Patch this year with donations to purchase the pumpkins, working a shift and/or buying a pumpkin. All efforts definitely succeeded in meeting the needs of our church family and serving our community. It was a greater pleasure than usual for me to be the Pumpkin Pastor this year.
