The annual “Pumpkin Patch for Mission” will be sponsored at The First United Methodist Church of Owasso (FUMCO), October 5-31, 2017.   Our pumpkin patch is unique in that ALL proceeds from pumpkin sales are given away to local, regional and global mission.    Our mission is to offer a safe and fun fall activity for families and students to enjoy year after year while also funding local, regional and global mission!

Our pumpkins are born in New Mexico and transported to Owasso in tractor trailers.  The pumpkins come from Pumpkins USA/Pumpkins Fundraising.  They provide pumpkins to non-profit organizations for fundraising sales.  Check out their website, https://www.pumpkinsusa.com/about-us/our-story and follow on Facebook.

Purchasing pumpkins at the patch makes a difference locally and globally.  The 2016 Pumpkin proceeds allowed us to provide financial support or donated items to:  Owasso Community Resources (OCR) http://owassohelps.org, Arubah Community Clinic in Collinsville http://arubahclinic.com, City Lights Foundation (sponsor of Night Light Tulsa) https://the-city-lights-foundation-of-oklahoma.networkforgood.com, FUMCO Food Pantry , FUMCO Christmas Everyday fund, Restore Hope Ministries, UMCOR relief kits, OKVIM ongoing Bolivia mission efforts, FUMCO sponsored VIM Mexico Spring Break mission trip, OKUMC sponsored Exodus House and CJAMM ministries, OCR sponsored Thanksgiving Baskets and Christmas Angel Tree gifts for CJAMM and children through OCR.  Learn more about these mission at our website: http://fumcowasso.org/about/missions/.

Most importantly, the “Pumpkin Patch for Mission” is also an outreach to Owasso and the surrounding communities.  The “Outdoor Classroom” provides a fun learning opportunity for school field trips.  The annual “Hance Henrie Memorial Run for the Patch” start and finish line are at the Patch.  A free outdoor movie night and the annual Halloween “Trunk or Treat” are also held at the patch.

This year the Patch will open on Thursday, October 5th.   The hours are Sunday-Friday daily, from noon to dusk, and Saturdays and fall break (October 19-24) from 10 a.m.-dusk.  In addition to the Pumpkins for sale – that come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors – our activities include:  Outdoor Classroom, weekend hayrides, a fun maze, stickers and wonderful photo backdrops.

We are also collecting NEW ADULT SOCKS of all colors to give to our friends at Night Light Tulsa in support of their month long SOCKtober initiative.
