Pumpkin Patch October 7 – 31, 20l3
Blackwater United Methodist Church is happy to announce the return of our annual Pumpkin Patch!
Why do we have a pumpkin patch? It is a fundraiser. The sales from the pumpkins help the church fund special mission projects. It is also a time where we are given the opportunity to share our Christian story with the community.
We invite everyone an opportunity to purchase pumpkins! Come and have fun roaming the pumpkin patch going on hayrides and playing games on Saturday October 19th and 26th. Mark your calendars, come join us. If you've been before, we look forward to seeing you again. If you haven't, plan on joining us this year. The pumpkins arrive on October 5th and go on sale starting October 7th, 2013 from 9am – 6:30 pm. Monday thru Saturday and 1 pm – 4pm on Sunday. Students who need community service hours are welcome to come help unload the truck on October 5 at 9am. Call the church at 261-4646 to confirm.
