ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Leesburg congregation closed the doors of its church and headed out to serve the community.

Sunday, the LifeGate Church spent what they call "PASS Sunday" at Turtle Park.

The church dedicates every fifth Sunday to community service, and in this case, church members passed out free hot dogs and snacks.

The pastor of the church said this is one way for the community to get in touch with the church, without being in one.

"For one it does something for our church, to get outside of the four walls, and get outside of ourselves, to go meet people that we normally wouldn't meet maybe," said Cory Wise, pastor of LifeGate Church.  "That's a good thing. For the community, it just helps people to see that hey, it's not about always having to try to get somebody to come to us, we want to go to you, we want to find out where you're at and what  your dealing with and how can we be a blessing in your life."

They also took part in installing playground equipment at a mobile home park.

The pastor says though the church is in Leesburg, this gives them a chance to fellowship with people in the city.
