Everywhere you look--a Pumpkin Patch!

October 13, 2014

Fall is in the air, and pumpkins abound!!

Rev. Michi Head, senior pastor for Jefferson United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge, is shown "staying on top of" pumpkin delivery to the church as the congregation prepared for the recent opening of their annual Pumpkin Patch.

This yearly site is common throughout the Louisiana Conference, with many of our local churches hosting Pumpkin Patch fundraisers. Proceeds are often allocated for community outreach, global missions and youth programs. Many churches host special activity days with family-friendly activities in association with their Pumpkin Patch events.

Enjoy the pictures, below, of Pumpkin Patch ministries spotted during October throughout the Louisiana Annual Conference.

Also, fall festivals are popular community outreach events for United Methodists churches throughout our conference. Find five helpful tips to take your church’s fall festival “to the next level.”
