Kids' Day Fall Festival Coming to Kendall Park
Christ the King Lutheran Church hosting Pumpkin Patch and kids day to celebrate fall season.
With the green leaves of summer evolving into the colorful tapestry of fall, Christ the King Lutheran Church on Route 27 in Kendall Park is welcoming in the season with a series of events throughout October.
The church is selling pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn and more through Oct. 31, leading up to their Kids' Day Celebration on Oct. 27.
"This is a great way for us to get to know our neighbors better and to meet more people in our community," said Pastor Kim Carlson. "This opens up our doors to welcome in the community to celebrate the fall with us."
The event is a new venture for Christ the King and the other worshipping communities that use their building, the Evangel United Brethren Church, which is a church of primarily west African immigrants, and the Tamil Gospel Church, a non-denominational Tamil speaking Christian congregation. The churches will be donating 10 percent of the profits from the Pumpkin Patch to the South Brunswick Food Pantry.
"One of our local missions is to support the South Brunswick Food Pantry, which fits with our regular pattern of how we give back to the community and how we support our neighbors," Carlson said. "That's part of we are and who we have been."
The Kids' Day Celebration is open to all and will include face painting, story time, pumpkin painting, photo cut-out boards, games, apple cider, hot chocolate, snacks and a bake sale. The Pumpkin Patch is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
"There is no charge for any of the children's activities, and children of all faiths are welcome to share in the fun," Carlson said. "This is simply our way of offering hospitality to all the children of our community in a fun day of fall festivities."
