Meet Me At The Pumpkin Patch
Fall has long been my favorite season. I love comfy sweaters, the changing colors, and cooler temperatures (If the St. Louis humidity would give it up already!) Over the years, my love for the fall has grown stronger, as some of the best things in my life have happened in October. Shane and I were married in October. We welcomed our first born, Parker, in October. Besides those special events, our Octobers have another great thing in common--time spent at the pumpkin patch at Webster Hills. There are photos of us on our wedding day in the patch. Parker’s first outing as a newborn was at the Family Fun Day at the patch. Last year, Parker pushed his new baby sister, Allison, around in her stroller, showing her the pumpkins. It has truly been the backdrop for some wonderful memories.
The pumpkin patch has also brought us closer with other members of the church. We have come to know others we may not have otherwise crossed paths with while serving there. It is truly amazing to see how this ministry brings all of us together. It takes a tremendous amount of work to make the pumpkin patch possible, from the manpower at the pumpkin unloading, to serving at the BBQ, to coordinating and working shifts, not to mention countless other necessary jobs. Our church always makes it happen—together.
The pumpkin patch has also been a wonderful way to make our church more visible to the community. Some families walk from surrounding neighborhoods and others from much further away to “The Pumpkin Patch Church.” We really have the opportunity to not only enjoy the fun activities at the patch ourselves, but also to use these activities to extend kindness and God’s love to those around us.
I know many of you also have fond memories of the patch. I am excited to make more this year and look forward to seeing you there! Check out this year’s great events!
