Gilead Luthern Church Sunday School

Sunday Church School has faced many challenges since September. Due to many factors including conflicting commitments and the Covid-19 resurgence, we have not had as many friends joining together on Sunday mornings. 

We have decided to postpone all remaining classes this spring and will resume in September 2022. Hopefully, all of our regular friends and some new friends will be reunited to share bible adventures and songs and fun together. We will send further details over the summer. Jen and Tori ask that all students, watch the mail for some surprises. We will miss all of our children very much. See you in September. Gilead is located at the intersection of Route 7 East and Route 278. Our phone is 518-279-9270.

Support for Parents of Children with Disabilities

BRUNSWICK – Do you have a child with various disabilities or other needs? You are cordially invited to participate in a support group from the comfort of your own home! This is an opportunity to share concerns, insights, and resources to help navigate through both rewarding and challenging times.

The group meets via zoom on the first and third Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM, and is open to all parents and caregivers without regard to geographic or religious boundaries. If you are interested, please write to and Connie will send you an online link to the group and answer any questions you may have. Sometimes a bit of encouragement makes all the difference!

Calling All Knitters

BRUNSWICK – Are you someone who likes to knit, but you’ve already made everything you need for yourself and your family? We have a great opportunity where you can use your skill to help others!

Shawls are made to share and bring comfort to those who are ill or suffering, and they have always been very much appreciated.
