After a couple of weather postponements, the seeds for the church’s pumpkin patch finally made it into the ground, thanks to gardeners Bob Joldersma, Carolyn Wentworth, George and Barbara Kausler, Pam Evans, and Maurine Kuiken.

And with Pastor Chad Oyer’s blessing of the pumpkin patch, we’re pretty sure they’ll have a bounteous crop this year!

The goal of the church’s Caring Garden “is to share God’s bounty with those less fortunate, to better appreciate our blessings at FCC via beautiful gardens and grounds, and to share fellowship and fun with other gardeners,” notes their website. “Local gardeners can lease tilled garden beds from the church, plant the annual vegetable or flower plants they wish, and then donate at least 10 percent of the proceeds to local food pantries. All planting, weeding, harvesting, and clean-up is handled by the individual gardener.”

First Congregational Church is located at 6105 Center Road near “The Forks” (intersection of Center Road and Peninsula Drive). For more info about the gardens or church services, visit their website or call (231) 947-6698.
