2023 Pumpkin Patch
Supporting our community


Lakeside United Methodist is bringing the Fall fun to you with the first ever, Fall Pumpkin Patch on Lake Houston parkway. We are open everyday during October from 10:30 am to dusk. (Our pumpkins arrive at noon on October 15th and we will open just as soon as we have pumpkins on that ground!) We accept venmo, zelle and credit cards as payment. Pumpkins are priced by size and range from $4-$50. All proceeds benefit our children and youth ministries as well as many missions/outreach efforts. There is no admission fee to visit the pumpkin patch, enjoy the crafts, photo opps, food trucks and Movie night! 

About the Patch


Follow our Facebook page for more information about the patch, special activities, announcements and to be "in the know" about our schedule during bad weather days (rain). We love meeting each of you and your friends and family as you come and make memories in The Patch each year! We like to say that "it's more than a pumpkin" and really believe that! Your support of the pumpkin patch helps us to provide for the following ministries (just to name a few):

  • Azleway Foster Children's Services - Providing Christmas for our local children
  • Church Ministries and Family Outreach
  • Lake Houston Outreach 
  • Houston Food Bank 
  • Project Mammogram - Memorial Hermann NorthEast 
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Summer mission trips/Camps for all ages
  • Special events throughout the year for families
Let Us Host Your Group


Coming Soon, Story Time (15 minutes)

We LOVE hosting groups for Story Time Field Trips in the Patch! Your group can sign up HERE.

We are delighted to host your group in our Pumpkin Patch! An energetic storyteller will read several stories, guide your children as they explore the pumpkin patch and arrange for the children to purchase pumpkins (optional). If booking a group with more than 30 students, please sign up for TWO back-to-back slots.

Please contact the church office (281) 225-7022) if you are going to be late. If the forecast calls for rain, you are welcome to reschedule, or we can read the stories to the children inside the church in our Chapel. Pumpkin purchases are not required, but encouraged and appreciated! Our smaller pumpkins are $3.00- $5.00. The bulk "carving" pumpkins range in price from $6-$50 based on size. Pumpkins are available while supplies last.

THANKS for choosing to support The Pumpkin Patch!
