FUMC Pumpkin Patch

The First United Methodist Church's Pumpkin Patch is an annual fundraiser held every October. Proceeds from our Pumpkin Patch go to support the Backpacks For Hunger program in our community.


A semi truckload of pumpkins arrives just in time for fall each year carrying pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors. 

The patch boasts a unique and festive decor inviting families and friends to join around the pumpkins for photographs to cherish memories of fall. 

The Pumpkin Patch also hosts field trips for local schools, providing a special Pumpkin Patch story time and activity. Field trips must be scheduled in advance. Please call for details.

Admission is always free & the 2020 Pumpkin Patch will be open starting: TBD

  • Mondays - Fridays:  8:30am - 12:30pm & 4:00pm - 8:00pm
  • Saturdays: 8:30am - 8:00pm
  • Sundays:  12:00pm - 8:00pm

Please call 956.423.0540 with questions or email: Secretary@fumcharlingen.org
