|First United Methodist Church||
Each October, the Church on the Hill works together to fill the hill with pumpkins, a visual reminder to all who pass by that autumn has arrived!
Our 7th annual Pumpkin Patch has begun and will run through Oct. 31. Daily hours will be from noon-7 p.m. Sundays through Fridays, and 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturdays. On Monday Oct. 13 (Columbus Day) and Tuesday, Oct. 14 (a North Attleboro Schools professional development day), the patch will open at 9 a.m.
We will be discussing more about the Navajo Indians in our Sunday School classes, as it is on a reservation in New Mexico where these pumpkins are grown. For more than 29 years, Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers, Inc. has helped churches and other non-profit organizations throughout America raise money by selling pumpkins. Each fall, the organization ships over 5.5 million pumpkins - enough pumpkins piled one on top of the other to reach the International Space Station orbiting 240 miles above the Earth's surface and back -- to churches and other organizations to help raise money. This is our Church's biggest fundraiser of the year, helping us carry forward our mission of Loving God and Loving Others.
