What Is Lent?

The 40 days (not counting Sundays) before Easter is the Christian season of Lent.  We use this time to prepare for Jesus’ resurrection by turning our hearts toward God.  Many choose to give up something the feel takes their attention away from God.  Others may decide to give more of themselves to a cause.  And some take time to develope disciplines like going to church, reading Scripture or a dedicated prayer time to bring them closer to God.

This year Broadway United Methodist will worship with a sermon series called The Walk.  Each Sunday at 8:30 and 10:30 am we will walk with Jesus and examine five essential spritual practices.  Each is grounded in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught by him in the Bible.

Holy Week - April 5-11

At the present time all in person gatherings at Broadway United Methodist are suspended.  We currently do not have a date when worship and ministries will resume.  In the meantime, we invite you to join us for our Sunday worship services and special Lenten services as they are broadcast live.

Holy Week is the last week of Lent, the week immediately preceding Easter Sunday. Special services will be held on Thursday and Friday of Holy Week where we will commemorate and enact the suffering (Passion) and death of Jesus through various observances and services of worship.
