Gilead Lutheran Summer Services
CENTER BRUNSWICK – Gilead Lutheran Church will be holding worship services in a beautiful outdoor setting, overlooking a pond, allowing time for you to “ponder” this week’s message. It is not unusual to see Canada Geese families walk from the pond and lay on the lawn to take a gander at our service. This takes place each Sunday morning beginning June 6, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. We also offer Communion each week. The church is located at the intersection of Routes 7 and 278 in Center Brunswick. In the event of inclement weather, we will move inside. You may remain in your car and listen to the service on FM radio station 107.5 or bring a chair to sit outside your vehicle. Any questions, please leave a message at 518-279-9270. Our web site is gileadlutheran.org.
