Lent at Cedar Hills

We have a tradition of celebrating the season of Lent with reflective midweek services at Cedar Hills.

This year Lent begins on March 1 with Ash Wednesday.  Meals begin at 5:15pm with a short 35min service to follow at 6:30pm.  We are celebrating “The Cross”, and each week will walk through a station of the cross via narrative shadow plays.  We’re excited to present these plays as a unique way to reflect on the final moments of Jesus. (If you’d like to attend the meal, RSVP each week via the Sunday bulletin tear-off or by contacting the office by Monday noon at 319-396-6608.)

These are family-friendly, relaxed dress services.  While there is no nursery staff available, there is plenty of space for children and families and the nursery room is always available if a parent needs to step out with a child.  We’ve found the shadow plays are intriguing to children of all ages, and the shortened services are just the right length for families with children.

We’ll continue on Wednesday evenings at 6:30, until the week of Maundy Thursday when we’ll meet on Thursday night.  On Easter morning, we’ll regather to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord! Services will be at 8:30, 9:45 and 11am.
