The Pumpkins are Coming!
Since 2009 Trinity Church has welcomed over 1000 pumpkins onto our property every year. This has become a ministry that has welcomed people from our neighborhood, our city, our island, our state, our country, and the world onto our campus. We have gotten to know each other a little better through the years with 8 o’clocker’s and 10 o’clocker’s sitting in the Patch together. Our community count the days until the pumpkins arrive!
God works through these pumpkins to allow us to share the spirit of Trinity Church! The money we raise from the patch goes partially to support our parish but 70% of it goes to support outreach! We have donated over $50,000 through the years. We support both local and international agencies.
This year as we are still slowly coming out of our Covid season may you find time to come sit with the pumpkins. Sell them to those that come to see the spectacular view of the pumpkins in front of Trinity Church. Talk with those that come and visit, about our church and about our faith. Sell them a cider, cold or hot depending on our weather of the day, or a fresh baked good from one of our parishioners.
Please sign up to sit with the pumpkins and sell them for a great cause!
I look forward to sitting with many of you.

New volunteer training will be held on October 10 after church in Honyman Hall.
This training will be for those that are new to the Patch or those that would like a refresher. I will go over what it means to work in the patch, and cover various tasks.
The unloading of the Pumpkins is on October 15 at 5 PM.
We will wait for our 18 wheeler truck to pull up on Spring Street and we will unload one third of the truck, the rest of it onto the next patch. Please bring gardening gloves in case you are going to work inside the truck and a mask if you are unvaccinated, please remember to wear it anywhere on the property during unloading.
On October 16, we will open with our first official day of the patch! There will be live music, the Golden Coronation Coach, fresh baked goods, hot and cold cider, homemade Pumpkin Chili and all our amazing volunteers! Please be one of them!
Can’t wait to see you in the Patch!
The Patch runs from Oct 16 – Oct 31
Weekends 10 – 6 PM
Weekdays 12 – 6 PM
By the Glory of God, we welcome everyone to the 13th year of the Trinity Church Pumpkin Patch!
