The Pumpkin Patch

The Pumpkin Patch is an annual mission activity at St. John’s Lutheran Church. During the month of October, hundreds of pumpkins are sold. All the proceeds are donated. A Navajo tribe receives a portion for providing the pumpkins; all other proceeds are donated to local charities. Food sold at the food tent supports the quilters of St. John’s who make quilts for Lutheran World Relief, a world-wide quilt distribution to those in need. This mission activity is “pumpkins with a purpose!”

The Patch is back! 

On October 2 at 9:00 am, a semi-truck loaded with pumpkins arrives at St. John’s. The leadership team needs to be reconstituted, so if you are willing to be part of the Patch Committee, let either the Pastor or Gary Olson know ([email protected]).

  • Pumpkins are unloaded on the first day of the patch, from 8:45 am to 12 noon. Come help unload hundreds of pumpkins and ready the Pumpkin Patch for the October sale.
  • If you would like to sign up for a shift during the month of October to sell pumpkins, please let us know. We need many volunteers to staff the Pumpkin Patch.

You are encouraged to support “Pumpkins with the Purpose” and encourage your friends and neighbors to obtain their fall pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch of St. John’s!
