Agape Garden

 Agape Garden – A Great Family Mission Opportunity

agape2013

Located on the grounds of our Faith Chapel location at 7384 NW 16th St. in Ankeny, Agape Garden is our church’s ministry to provide fresh produce for area feeding ministries.  From spring planting through fall harvesting, a dedicated team of volunteers from our church and several other partner churches plant, tend and harvest the vegetables and fruits, and then deliver them to various feeding ministries around the metro. 

Each year, Agape Garden has grown. In 2010, we received Honorable Mention from the World Prize for a community garden effort.  In 2015 we were able to raise and donate 21,969 pounds of produce! Area agencies and ministries receiving produce include Bethel Mission – Hope Ministries, DMARC Food Pantry (Ankeny Neveln Center), North Branch Lutheran Church of Hope Ankeny Food Pantry, Trinity United Methodist Church, and our congregation’s “Homeless Helps” meals.
