St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in the Houston Heights is excited to present its annual Fall Festival on Saturday, October 14, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., benefiting local missions. The entire festival is held outdoors on the church’s front lawn. The festival includes the annual Blessing of the Animals by Pastor Emily Chapman at 10 a.m. on the front steps of St. Mark’s. In addition, a Pumpkin Patch featuring hundreds of pumpkins will be in full swing and remain on the church lawn from October 14-31 with pumpkins for sale.
The event promises lots of family fun, including the Pumpkin Patch, arts and crafts, children’s activities, a bake sale and local artisans selling one-of-a-kind art and gifts.
Hungry? There will be plenty of delicious food available for sale, including hot dogs, Greek Sliders, homemade hummus, chips and soft drinks. And don’t forget the fabulous sweets, ranging from a variety of homemade granola bars, cookies and homemade pickles.
Come on out, celebrate the season and join in the fun. Grab a bite to eat while you’re there, enjoy all the activities and shop for holiday gifts -- proceeds benefit local missions, including nearby Heights Interfaith Ministries Food Pantry and Wesley Community Center.
Vendor booths are available for $25 each. Please contact the church office for booth details. St. Mark’s United Methodist Church is located at 600 Pecore, in the Heights. For further information, call 713-861-3104 or visit the website at www.smumc.org.
