  • Reflection from Ash Wednesday 2017

    I sit at my desk (at a screen in a long row of screens), and turn up the volume in my ear buds and train my mind towards all the moments of grace I got to live yesterday, Ash Wednesday.

  • Delivering Good News to a World in Need

    There we were again on Ash Wednesday, standing in a busy Manhattan park offering ashes and prayer to a world in need. This year I was at Madison Square Park, under the canopy of tress with the smell of burgers and fries wafting from Shake Shack; in my white robe, sticking out like a sore thumb against the sea of secular clothing; looking strange, I’m sure, to many “unchurched” people.

  • 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!

    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.

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.

Daily Bible Verse

  • Ephesians 5:8-14

    ​For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light — for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.
