What's Happening at GA

Praying on Ash Wednesday at 18th and Park Ave South

Though it was mighty cold Ash Wednesday last year, a hearty cast of GA characters ventured out to the local parks prepared and willing to offer ashes and pray with folks. Fifteen people (including the president and dean of Wartburg Lutheran Seminary, Iowa) split into teams to cover: Union Square, Madison Square Park, Herald Square, and Times Square.  One team stayed at the church all afternoon. These folks stood with about 800 “neighbors” to pray with them by name and remind them how much God loves them. We plan to do the same this year, Mar. 1. 

Ash Wednesday 2013 at Union Square Park 

We invite you to join us for this powerful and holy experience. We’ll meet for the noon service on Mar. 1 and then head out in teams afterward. Please join us.

Daily Bible Verse

  • John 8:21-38

    34Jesus answered them, "Very truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. 35The slave does not have a permanent place in the household; the son has a place there forever. 36So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.
