Welcome to Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church! 

An Important Notice Regarding COVID-19 

Now that states are beginning to re-open, we are gathering data from the CDC, the governor's and mayor's offices, our bishop's office and other synods, in order to determine a timetable, safe practices, and cleaning procedures for re-opening GA. The school will continue remotely through the end of the school year, none of the building partners are meeting, so the building remains closed for the time being.

Regarding activities, we continue our Wednesday night study and discussion of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Life Together - we will be beginning at 6:30 with an opportunity for study and discussion. The evening will conclude with Evening Prayer, beginning at 7:00 PM. 

Please virtually join us on Sundays at 11:00 AM EDT and Wednesdays at 6:30 PM EDT:

 
Even though GA's building is closed to all activity, ministry continues. You can make your offering online. We have multiple ways to give: Vanco, Venmo, Text to Give, and PayPal.

We welcome you to subscribe to "Bread of the Day," a daily email including scripture, song and prayer from GA! We will continue to offer this devotion during the COVID-19 shutdown. Also, please see below for information about resources such as Worship in the Home and Christ in our Home

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 over 150 years.  Our Open Arms Preschool is 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.

  • We encourage you to check in with neighbors who might need some extra encouragement right now. We will support each other as we navigate this new reality. We trust that God brings life out of death and hope out of uncertainty. And we pray this beautiful prayer adapted from the New Zealand Prayer Book: God of the present moment,God who in Jesus stills the stormand soothes the frantic heart;bring hope and courage to usas we wait in uncertainty.Bring hope that you will make us the equalof whatever lies ahead.Bring us courage to endure what cannot be avoided,for your will is health and wholeness;you are God, and we need you.Amen.

  • Available each week on the ELCA worship blog are materials for “Worship in the Home.” Although various formats of livestreaming worship work well in many contexts, you are encouraged to worship as you are able in homes on Sunday and throughout the week. Consider ways to pray and sing using this resource at home. If you don’t have a hymnal at home, perhaps churches might safely distribute copies for home use. In addition to Sunday worship resources, Daily Prayer in the Home is available, providing simplified forms of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer, as well as table prayers.”

Daily Bible Verse

  • Luke 1:39-57

    43And why has this happened to me, that the mother of my Lord comes to me? 44For as soon as I heard the sound of your greeting, the child in my womb leaped for joy. 45And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord."

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.
