The DGFUMC Pumpkin Patch

Wes and Anna at the Pumpkin PatchThis year, purchase your pumpkins from the Downers Grove First United Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch from October 13 to October 31. In addition to many pumpkins of all sizes to choose from, we'll have apple cider, a photo booth, and good fellowship to share!

All of the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity. First, proceeds will cover construction costs for our church's delegation that will serve with the Tutwiler, Mississippi chapter of Habitat when they go on a Mission Trip this spring. Any additional proceeds will be given for the chapter to use as they need. Halloween cookies will also be on sale to support Habitat for Humanity in the pumpkin patch.

The Pumpkin Patch will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekdays and during special hours on the weekends.  Volunteer help is needed. You can sign up online below!

Celebrate the fall season while supporting a good cause when you purchase your pumpkins from DGFUMC!

50th Anniversary CROP Hunger Walk

DGFUMC Team 2016

Sunday, October 20

1:00 - Registration
2:00 - Walk begins

When you walk in the CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 20, you are raising money to help fight hunger and also walking in solidarity with all of those people around the world who are walking for food, water, and firewood each day. Help us reach our goal of 50 walkers for the 50th CROP Walk!

Stop in the parlor on Sunday to sign up to walk or for a donation envelope. If you can't walk, consider sponsoring one of our pastors. Rumor has it that John Smoke said if we don't reach 50 walkers, he will carry a 50 lb. bag of cat litter during the walk! Let's help John out!!!!
