Pumpkins with a Purpose
Fall is in the air which means “Pumpkins with a Purpose” are not far behind. St. Charles United Methodist Church will be hosting their 21st Pumpkin Patch.
It has become a tradition in the parish for many families to come visit our patch and take their Fall Family Pictures!!
Our patch not only allows for children to come visit many times during the month but the proceeds that we earn at the patch go into our Mexico and Cuba Mission Funds. Each year we send teams to both Mexico and Cuba reach out in relationship with them. We have sent musical teams, medical teams, construction teams, vacation bible school teams and whatever our host countries need of us at the time. It is a blessing to have so many people support these missions through this fundraiser.
Our first pumpkin truck arrives on Saturday the 30th at 3PM. We will have fresh pumpkins of all sizes which have been picked in New Mexico just days before they arrive at the patch!
We invite the community to come and enjoy our patch from October 1st – October 31st.
Field trip groups are also invited from schools, scouting groups and so on. You can call the church to find out how to schedule your field trip at 985-764-8292.
Public Hours of the Patch:
Sunday – Fridays 11AM – 7PM
Saturdays 9AM -7PM
