Welcome to Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church! 

Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church is a Christian community dedicated to growing the personal faith of its members, strengthening the support and connection between its members and becoming a religious resource in its urban neighborhood surroundings.  GA thrives through a foundation of service to Christ and a commitment to spiritual development and outreach.

We have been a source of spiritual and community strength in the Gramercy Park area for almost 150 years.  We recently launched Open Arms Preschool - founded on the philosophy that play is a child's vehicle for learning.

We are within walking distance to many of Manhattan's east side neighborhoods including Kips Bay, Peter Cooper Village & Stuyvesant Town, the Lower East Side, and Murray Hill.  We are conveniently located to public transportation.

Please join us - Renewing Faith and Building Community.

Join us for Sunday worship.
All are welcome!

φιλοξενία - philoxenia: “love of strangers” concert held at GA

 

Philoxenia Live

Posted by Lucas Mietlowski on Tuesday, February 14, 2017

 

On February 14, 2017, GA held an evening of fun, music, and joy; GA was place to come together to share our concern for immigrants; a time to lift up the work of Seafarers International House and  Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services through song. We "lifted every voice and sang," lifted up our neighbors, near and far.

  • I sit at my desk (at a screen in a long row of screens), and turn up the volume in my ear buds and train my mind towards all the moments of grace I got to live yesterday, Ash Wednesday.

    • Worship
  • There we were again on Ash Wednesday, standing in a busy Manhattan park offering ashes and prayer to a world in need. This year I was at Madison Square Park, under the canopy of tress with the smell of burgers and fries wafting from Shake Shack; in my white robe, sticking out like a sore thumb against the sea of secular clothing; looking strange, I’m sure, to many “unchurched” people.

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.

 

Healing Services

We offer brief healing services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. These are powerful times of anointing and prayer. They are held in the sanctuary after the 11 AM service.

Daily Bible Verse

  • Ephesians 5:8-14

    ​For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light — for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.
