Community Garden at ACTS Leander
Last year during Unleash ACTS, ACTS Church Leander discovered that two of the primary passions of their families were one, community gardening, and two, finding concrete ways to better love their neighborhoods. It took some coordinating, but ACTS Church helped their folks take the next steps in equipping and sending their in those two areas March 17th.
Their Sending Sunday consisted of two parts.
First, over 50 people helped build two large community garden beds (and matching picnic tables). These will be used to grow fresh produce for ACTS of Love families and their partner elementary school, Bagdad Elementary.
Then in the afternoon, they helped three families host block parties in Cedar Park, Leander, and Liberty Hill. The church provided invites, smoked meats, and bounce houses, and over 150 people took part in the fun. Both events were different ways ACTS Church Leander is answering Jesus call to 'love our neighbors as ourselves.'
