We are excited to come together to celebrate all that this week means to us as Christ followers. Easter represents the essence of who God is, what He has done, and what He promises for our world today.

We’re also in need of volunteers leading up to Easter! If you’d like to serve with us during Holy Week, you can look at the different day/time options and sign up to help here.

 

Maundy Thursday

“…go and prepare the passover for us that we may eat it.”

MAUNDY THURSDAY MEAL ELEMENTS

If you were not able to order a meal pack from Persepshen, or if you would just like to prepare your own Maundy Thursday-inspired dinner, we’ve outlined the core elements for you. The meal includes lamb, bitter herbs, unleavened bread, charoset, and wine or grape juice. Of course, we realize that a lot of these items probably aren’t things you have readily available in your pantry! Feel free to substitute any way you can, as listed below.

Lamb: Use whatever meat you have on hand

Bitter Herbs: Use horseradish

Unleavened Bread: Use any bread you have on hand

Charoset: You can use applesauce or make a homemade fruit and nut paste

Wine: Any wine or juice you have available

 

Good Friday

“…but he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.”

April 15, 6:15 pm and 7:30 pm
Join us in gathering and worshiping together to mourn the death of Jesus and remember the price He paid to be reconciled with God. We’ll also have Good Friday themed art set up in our lobby. Both services will include children’s programs.

 

Easter Sunday

“…and they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus…”

April 17, 9:30 am

Rejoice with us outside on Easter morning to celebrate what was accomplished through Jesus on the cross! We’ll gather together at Margaret T. Hance park, on the east side of the park near the library. If you’re interested in being baptized during the Easter service, you can register now here! We’ve also included a detailed parking map at the bottom of this page.

We’ll have normal children’s programming for infants through kindergarten at New City Church. Families, plan to arrive early if you’re dropping littles ones off at church first, so you have enough time to park, go through child registration and walk over to the park area where the service will be held (map below)! Please pre-register your children here.

We encourage kids elementary age and up to join us at the park for this service! We’ll have plenty of seats set up, or you can bring a blanket for your family to sit on at the far sides of the seats. We’ll have special kid’s packs for them to pick up at a New City Kid’s tent there.

After the service, we’re hosting a kid’s egg hunt for all ages at 11:00 am across the street from New City! You can head over after the service ends – and pick up your little ones if they were in the classrooms at church – to participate in the egg hunt as a family.
