It takes a lot of helping hands to make the pumpkin patch run. Please sign up at the link below to help out in the patch!
The Jesse Lee Church Pumpkin Patch represents more than pumpkins. This year, it is a true emblem of resilience borne out of the trials of the pandemic in our own community and in the Navajo Nation. The Navajo were hit exponentially harder by COVID than other communities in America. However, they are now among the first nations in the world to reach herd immunity with a vaccination rate that is fast approaching 80 percent.
Jesse Lee Church Senior Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Bill Pfohl says, “The Jesse Lee Pumpkin patch embodies our commitment to mission outreach, our desire to serve our community and our hope to help make connections with our neighbors close to home and mission partners in the Navajo Nation that reflect God’s love and light into the world. We hope everyone has a chance to come and enjoy the Jesse Lee Pumpkin Patch this Fall!”
Jesse Lee Church’s 30+ year partnership with the Navajo Nation mission partners helps provide 700 seasonal jobs and a handful of full-time positions for people in the Navajo Nation. Every pumpkin purchased in the Jesse Lee Pumpkin Patch, whether real or our ‘homemade’ wooden ones made during the pandemic, makes a difference. Thank you for being part of this!
