First Presbyterian has been hosting a pumpkin patch since 2001. The pumpkin patch is the biggest fundraiser for the church's homeless outreach ministry, the Program of Hope. This year, the pumpkins will be arriving on Sunday October 2, 2016. To sign up to help, click here.
The Program of Hope is a holistic ministry that seeks to address the various needs of people who are without permanent housing. Every Wednesday morning the sanctuary is staffed by volunteers and open to people in need of housing vouchers, clothing, counseling, spiritual guidance, compassion and healing, food, job placement and resume assistance, bus tokens, transition into housing, and much more.
The pumpkin patch is also a great activity that allows First Presbyterian to visit with our neighbors, to partner with other volunteer groups and schools (it's a big job and we need help!), to celebrate the beautiful fall weather with all of God's children in such a scenic and fun environment. We love the pumpkin patch!
In recent years we have added a costume contest and movie night which has been a wonderful event fun for the whole community.
We have been able to keep the pumpkin patch alive and growing with the help of of community groups and individual volunteers, including:
