Opening in October
Monday - Thursday: 2 pm - Dark
Friday - Sunday: Noon - Dark
Visitors are welcome to come to the patch at any time (it's a great spot for photos), but pumpkin sales will only happen during those hours.
We invite local preschool and elementary schools to bring their classrooms to the pumpkin patch for a Storytime in the Patch field trip. Kids can tour the patch, take pictures, and pick out a small pumpkin to take home ($1/each). We provide a storyteller who will read age-appropriate fall and pumpkin picture books. We are open for field trips in the mornings Oct. 4 - Oct. 20. Please email Kim@ManchacaUMC.org to sign up.
If you'd like to sign up to be a storyteller or a helper during a Stories in the Patch Field Trip, please click below. (Books and other resources provided.)

What are some of your favorite things that God made?
Think about all the different kinds of pumpkins we saw in the patch, and all the different types of flowers we see in Spring, and all the different types of animals in the world, I wonder what does God's creation say about God?
God used the words "good" and "very good" to describe God's creation. I wonder what words you would use to describe God's creation?
I wonder what it means to be created in the image of God? What does it mean for you to be made in the image of God? What does it mean that all people (all shapes, sizes, colors, interests, etc.) are made in the image of God?
