Pumpkins Arrive Sunday 9/26/21! Pumpkin unloading is Sunday at 12:30 pm. Please bring wagons and wheelbarrows if you have them. There is something for all ages to do! If you attend the 11:00 worship, pack a lunch and join us in Bayless Hall while we wait for the fun! 

 

Be Part of the Pumpkin Sales Team! You don’t need to be able lift pumpkins to sell them. Anyone who can sit, talk to customers or count and collect money is more than qualified to help sell pumpkins. Remember, our purpose in selling pumpkins is not merely to raise money for our Children & Youth Ministry, it’s to get to know our neighbors who come to shop at the patch. A cheerful, friendly face is the most important qualification anyone needs to be a sales person at the pumpkin patch.



What we do with the money we raise from our 
Pumpkin Patch?

Money raised by selling pumpkins each year goes to help fund and support many, many events and missions of the Children and Youth Ministry here at Windcrest United Methodist Church (WUMC). Some of these include, Angel Breakfast, Day School Preschool Bibles, Vacation Bible School, Lenten Prayer Stations, Walk through Holy Week, SONrise service, Sundae Sundays, CPR training for Nursery workers, Backpack Blessing tags, Safe Gatherings Background Checks, Movie nights, First Friday Family Fellowship events, 4th of July Windcrest Parade supplies, Trunk-or-treat, Advent Workshop/kits, miscellaneous office supplies for the Children/Youth Director, Dumpster and Hay bales for the pumpkin patch, Graduation Sunday, Confirmation supplies, and so much more! In advance, thank you for your support in buying pumpkins, promoting our patch and volunteering!

THANK YOU
Thank you for purchasing your pumpkin from 
Windcrest United Methodist Church’s Pumpkin Patch. 
 
Your pumpkin started life about 100 days ago on a farm on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Farmington, NM.  Great care has been taken in the planting, growing and harvest to ensure that you have purchased a quality pumpkin with a long shelf life.    Unlike many other produce growers we use no undocumented labor.  Nearly 100% of our farm workforce is Native American.  We believe it is very important to use domestic labor as the  unemployment rate in this region is over 40%.  This project and others like it create roughly 25 full-time jobs and 550 seasonal jobs for Native Americans. Your pumpkin is a non-GMO product. After ripening, this pumpkin was hand loaded on a truck and traveled all the way to the  our pumpkin patch to help raise money for Children & Youth Ministry. This pumpkin has helped a lot of folks on his way to you…treat him nice!
