It's that time of year!
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. There are still plenty of time slots available, and signup sheets are in the Gathering Place and Sign-up to help with the Pumpkin Patch.
