Youth Pumpkin Patch
October 12-31 2019
The Pumpkin Patch is Sold Out! A huge THANK YOU to all our neighbors who showed up to buy their pumpkins and other goodies.
Great thanks to the Patch Sponsors for their support of our Youth...
Kudos to the Youth committee and the many volunteers, young & old, who helped make this year's patch a great success.
Each year, the Youth Group and Youth Committee along with other groups in the church embark on our largest fundraiser, the Youth Pumpkin Patch. The proceeds from this fundraiser support our youth programs, the summer mission trip, and the designated charities chosen by the high school youth.
The Pumpkin Patch opens on Saturday, October 12th. The patch will be in operation throughout the month, six days a week, until the supply of pumpkins is sold out.
The Patch provides great fun for families and kids of all ages. There will be thousands of pumpkins, a variety of gourds and squash. live music on the weekends, homemade baked goods and dusk movie showings on the following Friday and Saturday evenings:
“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”
Friday & Saturdays at Dusk - October 12,18 &19, 25 &26
This event helps celebrates the season in the greater Park Ridge Community. A wonderful time for fun, service and fellowship. Please come out and join us! To Download the 2019 Pumpkin Patch Flyer click here
