Gilead Lutheran Journey Together Marks Return
CENTER BRUNSWICK – Gilead Lutheran Church’s “Journey Together” outreach returns Saturday, June 12th after a lengthy pause for the pandemic. The group held a picnic on the church grounds for our first get together in over a year. Each family brought a dish to share and an item for Gilead’s Body & Soul Pantry. The final request was to bring a favorite game and a comfortable lawn chair. Ants were not invited although Aunts were, and they brought Uncles with them.
There was quite a variety of food including appetizers, pasta salads, chicken, German potato salad and desserts. After our meal we relaxed and enjoyed the wonderful fellowship, the Baltimore Orioles nesting in our trees and the visitors from north of the border, the Canada Geese. Stay tuned for future Journey Together outreach events. Gilead is located at Routes 7 and 278, 518-279-9270, gileadlutheran.org.
