This year, the Greater Decatur Churches are working together to sell pumpkins on the campus of North Decatur United Methodist Church. The Pumpkin Patch will be open daily until 7:00 pm through October 31 or until we sell out. All proceeds benefit UMCOR - the United Methodist Committee on Relief - to help victims of hurricanes and other natural disasters.
