Each year, the New Horizon Methodist Men group sponsors our Pumpkin Patch event. This is a major outreach for our church, and brings hundreds of people from our community into New Horizon United Methodist Church. Preschool children arrive by the busload, and enjoy storytelling and other festivities while they wait for their big moment- picking out a pumpkin of their very own. This is an event to be enjoyed by entire families, and is a long standing tradition with many.

One of the most amazing aspects of this event is watching the truckloads of pumpkins get unloaded. The congregation always pitches in, youth and adult alike, and pass the pumpkins down the line from truck to final destination. It is a moment of true comradery, even with people you don’t even know, working together to accomplish a great objective.

The Methodist Men’s group uses the money raised to support a wealth of missions throughout the church, including the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home and Hallandale Food Pantry.
