The Worship Center Foursquare Church in South Boston will host a pumpkin patch beside the Heritage House on Old Halifax Road to raise funds for Habitat For Humanity beginning Friday night through Oct. 26.

The patch will be open Monday through Thursday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 2 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9  5 p.m.

Whitlow said each Friday night special activities are planned from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 

This Friday Three Nails will perform, hayrides will be offered, and a bouncy house will be set up on site.  

Whitlow expressed appreciation to Abbott’s Farm Supply for donating the hay at the pumpkin patch. 

The Worship Center Youth Group also will sell fried Oreos and Snickers, and other food choices also will be available.
