The patch runs through Oct. 31 at the church, 4 Union City Road.

New activities this year include miniature and frisbee golf games and a princess and superhero day.

Field trips for schools or other groups can be scheduled on weekdays. The church is also holding a Best Pumpkin Recipe and Best Scarecrow contests.
