Gilead Honors Military
CENTER BRUNSWICK – Gilead Lutheran Church honors our military all year. For the past two years we have displayed a decorated tree with flags and ornaments that represent each branch of the military. To continue this outreach, this year we added a red, white, and blue star to complete the picture. During this season and all year long, we especially need to honor and remember those who are serving and those who have served. There are links to Facebook and YouTube on our web site: gileadlutheran.org. In the year 2020 of the COVID virus, we recommend you join us on these virtual services in the celebration of the birth of Jesus and hopefully find comfort in the peace of the season and a congregation full of faith and hope and still serving the community. Gilead is located at 308 Brick Church Road, Center Brunswick. Our phone is 518-279-9270.
