Portland Pumpkin Patch

First United Methodist Church of Portland, Texas hosts an annual pumpkin patch. During the month of October we'll be selling pumpkins and hosting a slew of fun, fall events for the whole family. This is the only pumpkin patch in San Patricio county and it's just a short drive from downtown Corpus Christi. Proceeds from pumpkin sales go to our Build-A-Home mission.

Build-A-Home

Every year we raise about $30,000 and head down to the Border and build a home for families in need.  That $30,000 will build a roughly 900 square foot home.  For many of the people we help; we are able to give them a real structured home for the first time in their lives.
