Shepherd's Shop is a quaint &
unique country gift store

At the Pumpkin Festival we teach that God made the pumpkin. Pumpkins are a healthy vegetable, as well as a colorful
fall decoration.  God has blessed us with these wonderful vegetables, that keep well in winter time and provide important
nutrition.

The pilgrims and early settlers of America were grateful to have pumpkins to eat, as other vegetables did not store well.
Pumpkins were a dietary mainstay...and were part of the Thanksgiving tradition from the start!  

Here, at Shepherd's Cross, we thank the Lord for the harvest of vegetables of every conceivable variety.
Join us in rejoicing in the bounty of His blessings!

Look for our pumpkin recipes when you come to the patch this year.  There are many uses for this wonderful vegetable,
and we sell all kinds for both decoration and for making delicious foods such as pies, breads, soups...even snacks!

The Pumpkin Festival is a fun & educational experience.

Historically, October 31st began as a Christian
celebration.    
On that same night, October 31st, these prayer
warriors would place a candle in their window to notify
people in need,  that  they could come to receive free
clothing and food.

The following day, November 1st (All Saints Day)  
those dedicated Christian laborers would go out and
actively share the Good News of their Christian faith.  

Throughout history, and throughout the world,
Christians have had slight variations on this theme,
however one thing remains constant in those historic
tales - that is the gathering of Christian believers in
prayer and in service to others.  

May our porch lights, this holiday season, shine
brightly as a beacon of hope for all. If you are in
need, be it for clothes, food, or a night of prayer, you
are welcome.

This positive tradition can be followed any time of the
year. What a positive reminder of our history and
mission!  

Pray together and  labor the fields together.  
The field is ripe for the harvest.

May our celebrations be such a witness to the
resurrection of Christ!

For more information about this special Christian
celebration throughout history, here is a link to
Wikipedia information.
