Challenge: Connect With Someone Different From You

This past Sunday, as part of breaking down the wall of division that we construct around ourselves, we were challenged to take a step toward reconciliation and connect with someone different from ourselves, whether theologically, politically, socially, economically, and so on. Checking in, how’s it going?

More Pumpkins On The Way!

Have you visited the Pumpkin Patch lately? In case you haven’t, we’re looking pretty slim on the patch! Not that looking pretty or slim is a bad thing, but when it comes to being the awesome Pumpkin Patch that we are, we want to be well stocked.

We need your help! We have more pumpkins arriving this Saturday, 10/22, at 4:00 pm. We need helpers to unload about 350 pumpkins. No weebees. With enough help, it should only take 45 minutes.

Just when you think I’m done asking for your help. We also need your help with filling in to work this coming week.

Fun! Fun! Fun!
Workers Needed for Pumpkin Patch
