  • Sunday Of The Passion / Palm Sunday - 3/28

    Even though we remain separated by the pandemic, as God's people we continue to gather around God's Word, confess our faith, sing our praises, and offer our prayers. Week in and week out, we give thanks for the technology and skills of individuals that enable this to take place. Join us this Sunday for worship at 11:00 via Zoom.

    This week we hear from Isaiah, Philippians, and the Gospel of Mark. In this reading of Palm Sunday gospel reading, may we remember focusing our worship on Christ. As we walk the path with Jesus on Palm Sunday, we join crowds of pilgrims from millennia before preparing for festivals remembering God’s salvation.

  • NYC Lutherans offer ashes & prayer to hundreds

    Teams of GA members offer ashes and prayer on Ash Wednesday to hundreds of people: at church, at Union Square, on the street, even in a local pub!

     Written by Paul Miller 

    Praying on Ash Wednesday at 18th and Park Ave South

    It was Ash Wednesday.

    We walked out onto 22nd Street and were greeted by a crisp, sunny, February afternoon. There were five us on this sojourn to Union Square Park to offer ashes and prayer for anyone seeking the blessing of God. A team of two members remained at the church to offer the same.

    As we headed toward
Lexington Avenue, we got
a few inquisitive looks. A 
woman with bright green 
hair nearly gasped at the 
site of four people in
 robes and stoles, wearing 
large crosses while walking down the street.
