GET READY FOR YOUR
FAVORITE FALL TRADITION!
Did you know that the tradition of the St. Andrew’s Pumpkin Patch began over 25 years ago? It started as a youth fundraising venture where 1,500 pumpkins were unloaded into the arms of 40 students and 10 adults. The Patch has since earned us the name of the “Pumpkin Patch Church” and serves as one of our largest community outreach events, all while raising money for our Youth mission trips.
By purchasing a pumpkin, you'll be supporting our Youth Ministry—a ministry that gives teenagers Christian Community and an opportunity to serve others—so, invite your friends, family, and neighbors to come, too! We hope to see you there!
The outdoor nature of our Patch allows for a fun and safe experience for you and your family. While COVID numbers are high in our area, we ask that you practice social distancing in the Patch and also consider wearing a mask, particularly on the weekends when it can get crowded.

We LOVE our preschoolers!
If you are a preschool director and would like to take a field trip to the Patch, we would love to have you! The Patch is open by reservation Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Explore the Patch, see the pumpkins big and small, take fall photos, and listen to stories from our charming storytellers. You can even purchase mini pumpkins for your students to take home. Purchase them in advance when making your reservation to make check-out quick and easy, or pay by cash/check the day of your visit.
