The season of Lent begins Ash Wednesday and runs until Easter Sunday. Ash Wednesday is Feb. 14, 2024.
During Lent, we will gather on Wednesday nights for a meal (5:15-6:15pm) followed by a short 30-35 min time of worship in the Worship Center. (Please kindly RSVP for the meal weekly in the Sunday bulletin using the bulletin response form.)
On Ash Wednesday, we will have a time of worship concluding with receiving the ashes on the forehead.
During Holy Week, we will gather on Thursday evening instead of Wednesday to celebrate Maundy Thursday together.
Easter services will be 8:30, 9:45 and 11am. There will be no Sunday classes on Easter Sunday.
Our Ash Wednesday worship service is March 2, 2022 at 6:30pm. A dinner is provided beforehand 5:15-6:15pm. An RSVP is helpful, but not required. (Call the office 396-6608)
Nursery (ages 0-36mo) and children’s worship (ages 3-3rd grade) will be available starting at 6:15pm. Children are always welcome to stay with their families in the service as well.
Come, receive the ashes, and enter into this Lenten season of reflection as we await Easter Sunday together.

Wondering how to celebrate Easter this year?
You are invited to our Easter Sign Celebration! We are asking each of you to use “garage leftovers” to come up with the most creative sign/sculpture to post on the church property. We will line Stoney Point Rd and E Ave from our driveways to the roundabout.
Come post your signs on Saturday, April 11th….so by Easter day our property will be filled with signs reflecting Christ’s love for all to see while driving by.
Include a heart and a message of Easter hope, like “He is Risen”.
- It’s windy on our hill! Take measures to ‘sturdy’ your sign.
- Bigger is always better for visibility!

It’s a Cedar Hills tradition – pancakes on Palm Sunday. This Palm Sunday, we invite you to make pancakes with your family for breakfast and enjoy them before the Live stream… or during! 🙂 Take a few pics of your pancake breakfast and send them to us. You might find yourself on the big screens Sunday morning, April 5 if you submit your pictures before 10am.
Our Staff Pancake Artist
And just for fun, our worship director is quite the pancake artist when cookin’ up flap jacks for her kids. Enjoy this album of our favorites:
It’s that time of year! Easter is quick approaching and we’re planning another great Easter Egg Hunt for Saturday, April 11 a 9am. The egg hunt is for ages preschool to 5th grade and is free and open to the public. Bring your own basket!
Help us with our Egg Hunt supplies and donate a few bags of candy! Just make sure they are individually wrapped and can fit inside a plastic egg (otherwise, the office staff has to eat the ones that don’t make the cut!)
Drop off at the bin near the Family Discipleship Table or to the church office anytime before April 9.

The Season of Lent
Cedar Chips – February 2020
Lent is a season of forty days (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter. This year it starts on Wednesday, February 26. It is a time of preparation for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are different practices associated with the season of Lent, but the intention is that Lent serves as a season of growing closer to God. Consider using the special services and practices of Lent to help you grow closer to God!
During Lent, we meet on Wednesday nights for a meal (5:15pm-6:15pm) and a short reflective worship service 6:30pm-7:00pm. The season begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 26 and continues until Maundy Thursday on Apr. 9. All are welcome for this season of reflection and going deeper into the Word.
The Egg Hunt was a great experience for the church, their families and the community to share in a joyous occasion together.
Our church donated plenty of candy!
The Constants and Colberts were beyond helpful in sharing candy with a family who came late and were unable to participate.
The Van Genderens, Pates, and Kathy Nelson did an incredible job volunteering!
