What's Happening at GA


A hearty cast of GA characters ventured out last year to the local parks and street corners in NYC prepared and willing to offer ashes and pray with folks. About 20 people (including the President and Assistant to the President 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 900+ “neighbors” to pray with them by name and remind them how much God loves them.

We plan to do the same this year. We invite you to join us for this powerful and holy experience. We’ll meet for the noon service on Mar. 6 and then head out in teams afterward. Please join us.

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.
