Gilead Church is “Renewing”
CENTER BRUNSWICK – Gilead Lutheran Church in Center Brunswick continues to serve the community in worship services and outreach. Both may be in a different manner, but we are here and we are using this new schedule to spruce up the church – inside and out.
Our dedicated members and staff are cleaning carpets, polishing floors, cleaning pews and some outside raking so the daffodils can poke through the ground. There is also a plan for some painting inside to spruce up a stairway – all within the “social distancing” rules. Our pastor has enabled us to set up on-line worship services, a Wednesday devotional and a breakfast with the pastor segment on Monday mornings. Our food pantry and dinners are still operating, but now with drive-up service, and an opportunity for a matching grant from the ELCA has been successful. Our next pantry/take-out dinner (Chicken ‘n Biscuits) is April 30th from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Our building may be closed, but we will be ready to welcome all members and those who would like to join us when the COVID-19 virus is less threatening. We are anxious to welcome all to our squeaky-clean sanctuary and fellowship hall. Please check out our web siite at www.gileadlutheran.org or contact us with any questions at 518-279-9270.
