How the "Patch" Has Grown

We had our first pumpkin patch over seven years ago. Originally, the money was used to sponsor a mission trip the youth were taking to Puerto Rico. As the patch grew, it has provided mosquito nets for our sister church in Liberia, relief through Bethlehem Ministry in Haiti, and helped support local missions like Interfaith Hospitality Network, in addition to paying for 1/2 of our 15 passenger bus. 

Milledge Avenue Baptist Church has become known around Athens as the Pumpkin Church. The proceeds have grown each year so that now the money is used in many more ways and to benefit a variety of areas in the church and community.

The Pumpkins Need YOU!!!

We are looking for a few wonderful people, actually we need quite a few, to assist in the selling of pumpkins! We need volunteers for days and evenings during our sale. Take a look at the volunteer schedule below to see if the spot you want is available! Two volunteers are needed for each time slot available for most days but our busiest days will need at least three volunteers.

We also need help turning the pumpkins throughout the week. You can find these opportunities on Wednesdays and Sundays but any day will help. Turning pumpkins is extremely important as it helps keep the pumpkins fresh and nice for selling.


If you need community service hours or would like to volunteer and you aren't a church member, please call the church office at 706.354.0090 or email Carrie.

It takes so much work to bring the pumpkins to MABC and we want to thank all of our volunteers who come out and help unload the truck as well as all those who come visit our pumpkin patch!
