Community Ministry at Gilead

CENTER BRUNSWICK – Community Ministry at Gilead Lutheran Church is collecting hats, mittens, scarves and socks to an area women’s shelter. Some of these are displayed on our mitten tree. We are also collecting children’s gifts for those who attend our food pantry who need an extra hand at Christmas. Members choose a gift tag and provide a gift that is requested for that child. Gilead is located at Route 278 and Route 7 in Center Brunswick. Visit our web site at; our phone is 518-279-9270.
