Great Pumpkin Party and Harvest Hoedown 2021
Great Pumpkin Party Volunteers

GPP Monday, Oct 25

Each night of the GPP is tabbed separately.  On mobile phones, use the toggle feature at the top of the page to see each night--don't forget to hit "GO" after choosing a date.

We are back!!  The GPP will be held at Valley Church and the Valley Community Center on Monday, October 25th, Tuesday, October 26th and Wednesday, October 27th from 6-8pm.

Locate the night and area you would like to serve. We need approximately 250 volunteers for each night so we ask that you sign up to volunteer for more than one night, if possible.  Please note the age requirements for each volunteer spot.

A light meal will be provided for all volunteers beginning at 5:00 on the lower level of Valley Church in Northpoint. If you are signed up to serve in an area at the Community Center, you will need to come to the church side between 5 and 5:30 if you want something to eat. (Monday: Walking Tacos, Tuesday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Wednesday: Hotdogs. Salad available every night)

When you arrive to serve, please park in the LOWER football stadium lot, at Jordan Creek Elementary School or across Mills Civic at WDM Christian Church. You may enter through the doors on the North side by the dumpster or the WEST doors. 

All volunteers need to sign in by 5:45pm to receive the instructions for your area and be ready for the doors to open at 6pm. If you are serving at Valley Church, sign in will be outside North Point each night and supper will be served beginning at 5pm each day in Northpoint. If you are serving at the Valley Community Center, you may sign in at the VCC OR at Valley Church outside Northpoint. The event will close at 8pm, but there will be a few things to do in your area so it is ready for the next night.

Each night we will need a clean-up crew to come in at 8pm to vacuum, take out garbage, etc. We will need lots of help Wednesday night to reset all ministry areas so they are ready to go on Sunday.

If you are a student, you may sign up to help with game stations by signing up on the tab labeled:  Student Ministries Game Stations

There is also a tab located above for the Harvest Hoedown, Night for families with Special Needs and pre-event set up needs.
