Happy 25th Anniversary to the Pumpkin Patch at Southern Hills Christian Church, Edmond. The annual fundraising event draws families from across the city, some who’ve shopped for the perfect Halloween pumpkin for 15 years.
The church purchases the organically grown pumpkins from the Navajo Tribe in Farmington, New Mexico, who grow and sell to churches nationwide. Two separate shipments assure customers have high quality products. The congregation’s Disciples Men organizes and runs the stand along with a host of volunteer church members.
This year the profits were divided equally between the church’s Breakfast Ministry and Youth & Children’s Ministry, plus Central Christian Camp & Conference Center. The popular drive-up hot breakfast and sack lunch ministry feeds 50-60 people each Saturday and Sunday morning. In tandem with FCC Edmond’s weekday breakfast program, Edmond residents are assured a meal 7 days a week.
Congratulations Southern Hills CC on this fun outreach ministry!
