Central Christian Church has been "Waco's Pumpkin Patch Church" since 2006. (#wacopumpkins) We are open everyday during October from 10 am to 7:30 pm. We accept cash and credit cards as payment. Pumpkins are priced by size and range from $0.75-$50. All proceeds benefit our children and youth ministries as well as many outreach efforts. There is no admission fee to walk around. Please be mindful of others in the patch. If you visit during "peak" times and there's a large crowd, we strongly encourage masking during this latest surge of the Covid-19 pandemic.
FIELD TRIPS--We WILL be hosting a limited number of field trips this year, while also taking the COVID19 pandemic seriously. We do not want to contribute to school/community spread of the virus. Since this is an outdoor field trip and we have room to spread out, we feel that it can be a safe, fun experience for kids. Please note that we are limiting groups to no more than 30 (including students and adults) and will spread the kids out during story time. Masking will be encouraged, but not required since we will be distanced and outside.
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!
