Gilead’s Body & Soul Pantry and Dinner

October 25, 2018. As all of our animal friends are preparing for winter, we too are readying ourselves for what is to come our way for winter. This month we offer you a fall dinner of roast loin of pork, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, butternut squash and coleslaw. For dessert we have everyone’s favorite, apple crisp. We had many favorable comments about last month’s roast beef and hope we serve something as equally good this month.

Our pantry is back to our normal schedule of 3:00-6:00 PM. Now that we are entering fall and the winter rapidly approaching, we suggest when it snows you call the church at 518-279-9270 on that day to make sure we will be open.

For those of you who have not joined us for a meal, the question is why not. Here is our address. Gilead Lutheran Church is located at the intersection of Routes 7 & 278 in the Town of Brunswick and we are handicapped accessible. Come join us and meet your friends for dinner.
