Lent, Holy Week, & Easter at BHPC
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:
Ash Wednesday Services
Our services will be held on Wednesday, March 1 at 1:00 and 7:30 pm. These meaningful services marked the beginning of the holy season of Lent. There was Communion and Imposition of Ashes at both services.
Lenten Centering Prayer
Every weekday in Lent ((March 1 to April 13), join Pastor David Gray in the Sanctuary from 12:00 to 12:20 pm for a Centering Prayer to reflect upon this journey towards the cross.
Lenten Small Groups
We invite you to deepen your spiritual practice this Lent by joining a six-week small group. As we journey through Lent together, we encourage you to make some space for your spiritual journey and growth as you strengthen your relationship with God and friendships within the congregation. The small groups will be a time for self-reflection and spiritual growth through weekly themes of service, growth, sharing our stories and welcoming. These are connectional, discussion-based group using scripture, activities, and prayer guided by a leader. You are invited to join a group during the sign-up period from February 19 to February 27. You will be matched with a group of 6 - 12 Bradley Hills members depending on your availability, and meet weekly during Lent.
We offer services on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday during Holy Week 2016:
Worship with us at 8:30 & 10:30 am to experience the Children's Palm Processional, special music, and David preaching.
Worship with us at 7:30 pm. This reverent service is profoundly moving and meaningful as the darkness deepens during Holy Week.
We hold two worship services on Good Friday at 1:00 pm and 7:30 pm. These services help all experience the depth of Christ's suffering in preparation for his resurrection.
We offer two identical family-friendly services at 9:30 and 11:30 am. Please contact Communications Specialist Samantha Steinfeld with questions at email@example.com.
