IMPORTANT UPDATE

To ensure the safety of our parishioners during this pandemic, worship service & Bible study are temporarily suspended. We are hoping to resume service on April 5th.  

(Stay tuned for updates and changes)

Please read the latest letter from Pastor David Anglada below.

Dear friends in Christ, 

 

As the Coronavirus spreads, we are called as people of faith to protect and care for one another, especially the most vulnerable among us. As a step towards doing this, Susan Lowe, President of The Board of Trustees, and I believe that we should not gather physically for worship in our church building for the next two weeks, between now and March 29th. It is our sincere prayer that we will gather for worship on Sunday, April 5th, (Palm Sunday). We will assess the situation and adjust as necessary. The aforementioned is consistent with the recommendations given to us from The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), The Metropolitan New York Synod, as well as the Governor’s Office of New York State.

 

Why? The Coronavirus is now a pandemic and we are responsible for one another. According to the Federal Government, the virus has spread throughout the entire United States. We can't stop the spread, but we can slow it down, thereby saving thousands of lives and helping ensure that our health care system remains effective. 

 

Therefore, social distancing is our best means of slowing the spread. The majority of churches who are members of the ELCA have made the same decision to suspend worship services in our church buildings as COVID-19 cases have increased in the United States.

 

While we won't gather at Grace Lutheran Church for worship these next two Sundays, God will be worshipped and praised. I encourage you to pray daily, spend time reading your daily devotions, call your congregational friends and pray for each other. During the next two weeks, I will share a brief message here on our website, which will be posted on Sunday mornings at 9:00am. 

 

People of God be not afraid. God is with us; God is good. God is leading us and guiding us even now. God is teaching us how to be Church in ways that might not be what we know to be Church, but in ways that will be faithful. 

 

I want to assure you that God loves you and will not abandon us; God will always accompany us. Please know that we are here for you. Please feel free to call me for pastoral emergencies at 917-705-2975. You can also reach me at danglada@glcas.org.

 

Faithfully yours, 

 

David Anglada
