Pumpkin Patch at Maple Springs
Maple Springs is widely known as “the pumpkin church”. Since 1978, Maple Springs has offered pumpkins for sale to the community in October. The pumpkin patch was managed and operated by our Youth with adult supervision and support. Proceeds were used to support our youth ministry programs for the year.
Recently, pumpkin patch operation was broadened to be a church-wide ministry. Youth are, of course, still an important part of the program, but proceeds are now used more broadly to help fund our church-wide missions and outreach ministries.
Perhaps the most important part of the pumpkin patch is welcoming members of the community to our church campus. We offer an open invitation to members of our community to worship, work, and serve God with us. The pumpkin patch is one way we can invite the community to make a first visit to our church in a comfortable environment for a fun time of shopping for pumpkins.
