On Saturday, October 16th, at 3:00pm, a HUGE tractor-trailer will arrive at Yardley United Methodist Church in Lower Makefield to deliver more than 500 pumpkins of all sizes, from a farm in New Mexico, in preparation for the church’s annual Pumpkin Patch on the church’s front lawn at Scammell’s Corner.
Members will be there, some with their wheelbarrows, to unload the pumpkins and set up the Patch on the church’s front lawn at Scammell’s Corner.
Sales of the pumpkins will take place from October 17th to 31st, noon to dusk.
You’re invited to come to buy pumpkins or to just enjoy walking through the Patch and taking pictures of your family there.
Proceeds from the pumpkin sales will fund the church’s mission trips and other outreach activities.
And, although the COVID pandemic continues, the YUMC community has devised safe ways to continue to be in ministry.
Sunday Worship Services are hybrid: an in-person service is held at 9:00am (with masks and observing social distancing), followed by a Fellowship Hour on the front portico, and a Zoom worship service at 11:00am Sunday School for children is on Zoom, while Youth and children’s mid-week groups meet for worship, study and recreation, outside on the lawn and around the fire pit.
Weekday adult study groups take place on Thursday afternoons and Tuesday nights, on Zoom.
Donations of non-perishable foods are received from congregants and the community throughout the month and delivered to the Penndel Food Pantry on the second Tuesday of each month.
We welcome everyone to take part in these ministries.
