Gilead Resumes Indoor Services

CENTER BRUNSWICK – Gilead Lutheran Church is returning to worship services inside the sanctuary. We appreciate the support we’ve received while we held services outside. COVID guidelines will not be as strict as the past year, but we ask that parishioners wear masks and remain social distanced. Please join us as we return to some normalcy, and we will conduct services to keep us as safe as possible. We will also be continuing our food pantry and our free monthly dinners, but the dinners may remain take-out only. Please join us and take time to reflect on this past year-and-a-half and spend an hour remembering that God lifts us up and walks beside us in trying times. Gilead is located at Route 7 East and Route 278 in Center Brunswick. Our web site is and our phone number is 518-279-9270.
