God's Pumpkin Patch Party

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. 

God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes off all the dirt you may have gotten from other pumpkins.  Then He cuts the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.  He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.  Last, He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.

Join us this Friday 10/29 for a
God's Pumpkin Patch Party

at Kristen McConnell's House
15 Scarlet Maple Court

10:00 am
Wear a festive costume (not required)
Bring a snack
Make a craft
Have fun!

We hope to see you there!
