Honoring Military at Gilead Lutheran Church

November 30th was the date members of Gilead met to decorate the Sanctuary for Advent. The Advent Wreath was placed in the Chancel. The Altar Rail was wrapped in green garland and blue bows. Candles were place in the windows.

This year we have added a new feature to our Sanctuary. We have a white tree decorated in red, white and blue lights. Ornaments were added to honor all branches of the military, along with other red and blue ones. This tree is in honor of those who are presently serving in the military, retired military members and also in memory of those who have given their lives for this country.

Everyone is welcome to visit us any Sunday in December at 10:30 am for Worship or 8:00 pm on December 24th for our Christmas Eve Service. Gilead Lutheran Church is located at the corner of Route 7 and 278 in Center Brunswick and is handicapped accessible.

Join Us During Advent at the Nassau Grace United Methodist Church

In a season of holiday haste and hustle, Advent calls us to slow down and prepare. In a world of darkness and violence, the church proclaims a message of light and hope. In a world of division and fear, the coming of the Christ child reminds us of the healing power of love.

Your friends and neighbors invite you to join us as we watch with love. December 22nd the weekly service will be at 10 am. Topic will be the manger and nativity. Held in our historic and beautifully decorated sanctuary, children are invited to take part in our Sunday School starting midway through the service. This year’s Advent theme is based on a program written by Adam Hamilton. On Tuesday, December 24th, at 7 pm, a traditional candlelight service will be held. The joyous worship celebration will contain scripture, carols, a Christmas message and lighting of candles. The holy celebration begins as early as 6 pm for those who would also like to sing carols in front of the church.

The church is located at 42 Church Street, Route 20 in Nassau Village. For additional information please contact Pastor Dion Marquit. Text or Call: 518-915-3393. Email:
