We journey with God, to serve with love

Holy Week at BLC 2022

Join Us on the Sacred Journey as Our Lenten Theme Concludes with "The Message and the Messenger" - Jesus!


We have been gathering each Sunday and Wednesday evening during Lent, focusing on Christ as he, in word and deed, embodies the Gospel on his way to the cross.


Palm Sunday Weekend - Sunday, April 10th, 10am

We enter into the holiest of weeks on Palm Sunday, as Jesus "triumphantly" enters Jerusalem, proclaiming a new type of love, as we shout "Hosanna!" - hoping for what is seen but not yet believed.

Maundy Thursday, April 14th, 7pm

Here we celebrate the ancient "Passover" story and the final ("Last") supper Jesus enjoyed with his disciples, coupled with the (optional) footwashing ritual. We end the service with a reading of Psalm 22 and a stripping-down of the altar.

Good Friday, April 15th, 7pm: 

The bare altar and dark veil remind us of the sadness of a Friday that was "Good" only because Christ went to the cross for our sake. 

Easter Sunday, April 17th - 8:00am. & 10 am:

Celebration of the resurrection, in-full! Join us for a morning of Easter resurrection praise, along with a wonderful brunch at 9:00am!
