He Is Risen!
Easter Fun Fest - CANCELED
We regret that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our Easter Fun Day that was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2020.
May we encourage you, instead, to color and dye all your Easter Eggs and post them to our Facebook page? May we also suggest all kinds of Easter crafts and celebrations you and your family can participate in by visiting the link below! Post pictures to social media as soon as your done - we'd love to see your results!
Palm Sunday Parade Around Your House
Bake an Easter Cake
Bake Resurrection Rolls (hollow on the inside)
Easter Egg Hunt (empty eggs to point to the EMPTY Tomb!)
Easter Puppet Show, Books and Stories, Movies
Read the Easter narrative together from the Gospels
Good Friday Service
Friday / April 10 / 7pm, livestream
This worship service is open to all as we join us for a time of reflection, Holy Communion and worship. This time together is always a sacred time and we look forward to hosting you and yours for a night that recalls the events of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the events leading up to Resurrection Sunday.
Easter Sunrise Service
Sunday / April 12 / 6:30am, livestream
Join us at Hollywood Cemetery on Easter morning to celebrate our risen Savior! Members from New Song will be assisting in various parts to help lead the service, and we would love to have you join us! Get there early; the crowd/parking is always a little tricky. Just as Jesus met Mary at the tomb that day, we hope to see you there, too!
New Song's 2020 Easter Offering will all fall under the category of MUSIC this year and will specifically benefit two specific causes:
- We are collecting for our Financial Assistance Fund to better support those who are anticipating financial struggles as a result of shut-downs, loss of hours/job, and decreased paychecks.
- A major upgrade project has also been discussed for a new speaker/sound system. New Song's original speakers have been around since 1997! They have held their own for over 23 years, but they have started to show their age.
Both causes are meant to equip our church in ways that build and help our ministries for the future; the priority is obviously to assist our community and equip all to have vital, essential services. Praying for all++
Peep Show Contest - CANCELED
Not too long ago... we were cheering: Come on, Peeps! Let’s do this!
We’re now aware that getting you to the store to purchase Peeps is not safe.
As a result, we have made the decision to not proceed with this year's Annual PEEP Show. :(
Should you want to get creative and throw some peep creations out there... bless your heart. Still feel free to post anything you have to our Facebook page, but understand the contest element to this year's festivities has been canceled. Pandemic and other Acts of God was actually in the bylaws, so we're technically covered to do this (before any lawyers are consulted)!
We regret so many activities are being taken down all at once; we're doing our best to abide by the new rules and it's hard on us all! If nothing else... feel free to draw or describe what your Peeps Creation was going to depict and how you were going to design it!
Thanks for getting into this annual event - it's always been a fun one!
But this year, we'll count it as a year off: may our 2021 Contest be even MORE creative for it!
