Services & Activities During Lent
Lent is the forty-day liturgical period of prayer and preparation when we become ready to accept the gift of resurrection and new life that Easter offers us. Traditionally a time of prayer and fasting, we at Bradley Hills we also support taking time from overly-busy schedules for new or regular spiritual disciplines. During Lent, we offer:
Palm Passion Sunday
April 14 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
Come experience the highs of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem and the lows of Jesus’ passion with his coming death. Children will waive branches entering the sanctuary. Our Chancel Players will present a dramatic reading, “The Streetsweeper of Jerusalem,” as Dr. Gray preaches about how Jesus’ passion for each of us gives us confidence that we count too. Message “Sweeping into Jerusalem” based on Luke 19.
