 12:45 pm – Teams will depart for Union Square to offer prayers and ashes to the community. Please consider joining us this year.


Every year, a hearty cast of GA characters ventures out to the local parks and street corners in NYC prepared and willing to offer ashes and pray with folks.

We plan to do the same this year. We invite you to join us for this powerful and holy experience.

This year, Ash Wednesday is on February 26th. We encourage you to attend our 12:00 pm or 6:30 pm service at GA

We invite you to join the GA team who will be gathered in Union Square Park to offer Prayer and Ashes to anyone who wants them (departing the church at 12:45).

This is a powerful statement of our public faith in Jesus.
