  • Various service projects
  • A guided tour in the Metropolitan Museum with a focus on the images of Christ
  • One-on-one conversations about faith in daily life
  • GA will host the group on Saturday, Jan. 10, 6-9. (A catered meal will be provided.) The evening will end with a worship service.
  • This group will return on Sunday morning for worship at 11 a.m. before departing for home.
  • The entire retreat is sponsored by Project Connect and is being coordinated by Matthew O'Rear, Admissions Director, Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.

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.
