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

New City Church
Join us to share a 1st century Passover meal like Jesus did with his disciples before he went to the cross. We’ll gather together at New City for a special service and meal this year. It will include lamb, bitter herbs, unleavened bread, charoset and wine. Childcare will be provided for birth through preschool.
Registration is required so that we can plan for the amount of food needed. If you’d like to help us cover the costs of the meal, we would appreciate a donation of $15 for an individual or $40 for a family.
“…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.”

New City Church
Since Good Friday coincides with the First Friday art walk downtown, our traditional service will look a little different this year. Using the written word and some of the most famous art in history, our Good Friday Art Exhibit will guide attendees through the last few hours of Jesus’ life. This interactive installation will challenge you to contemplate the sacrifice that Jesus made and the eternal impact of the Crucifixion.
This art experience is designed with both Christians and non-Christians in mind, providing an incredible opportunity for you to invite a friend. It will be open between 7 – 10 pm and you can expect to spend about 20-25 minutes walking around to see everything. Drinks and hor d’ourves will be available so you can enjoy a time of community afterwards. Children are welcome to attend but because we intend for the environment to be contemplative, children should be accompanied by an adult at all times.
“…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…”

Margaret T Hance Park
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 preschool 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)!
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.
