In 2010, a group of members established a Community Garden on the site next to the church where the church had recently purchased and torn down a derelict house. The city’s Green Corp assisted with funding and provided help in the construction of an attractive circular patio for social events.
Now, member and neighborhood gardeners share the space and the produce and gather for outdoor dining and community socializing, often around horticultural themes. The garden, along with the adjacent children’s playground has also served as a venue for outdoor church events.
