Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. During these 40 days we remember the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation and preparing to do his ministry. By taking time for self-examination and reflection, Lent becomes a time of preparation for the coming of Easter.
We are excited to come together in the disciplines of Lent to strengthen our connection to God and each other. This Lent and Easter we invite you to join us as we worship and study together.
On this page you will find all the ways to worship with Broadway and offer a special invitation to become involved in a small group where the conversation continues and friendships are formed.
Based on the book and video series “Signs and Wonders” by Dr. Amy-Jill Levine, we are taking a look at selected miracles of Jesus through the lens of historical context. For each miracle we will hear and discuss how past witnesses would have understood the events, and how we can draw meaning from Jesus’s words and actions.
We invite you to join a small group to meet in person or our private online group. Hard copies of the book are available from the church office. Digital copies can be purchased and downloaded from many e-book vendors.
Sunday worship is held at 8:30AM or 10:30 AM in the church Sanctuary or online.

We are so blessed to be able to feature artwork by local artist Linda Muilenburg. Linda’s Stations of the Cross series is displayed in our Sanctuary.
This year we bring the art to you in the form of a Holy Week Devotional Journal. Each day from Palm Sunday to the Saturday before Easter we present two of pieces from the series with corresponding refletion questions.
Our photos of the art are not near as impressive as the real thing. We invite you to visit us to see them in person.
