Easter Sunday will have three services, 8:00 am, 9:30 am, and 11:00 am. All three will be the same mix of traditional and contemporary styles. Don’t miss our other Holy Week services leading up to Easter Sunday.
As we approach the season of Lent and Easter, we invite you to join us for a special Easter Sunday service at UPC. This is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and to come together as a community to worship and give thanks.
Our Easter Sunday services will be a time of reflection, renewal, and rejoicing. Easter Sunday will have three services, 8:00 am, 9:30 am, and 11:00 am. All three will be the same mix of traditional and contemporary styles. We will gather in fellowship to hear inspiring messages, sing joyful hymns and songs of praise, and offer our prayers of thanksgiving. It will be a day filled with hope and love as we come together to honor the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and celebrate his victory over death.
Whether you are a long-time member of our church or are looking for a new community of faith to join, we welcome you to come and celebrate Easter with us. Our doors are always open, and we would be honored to have you join us on this special day.
So, come and be a part of our Easter Sunday service and experience the joy of the season with us. We look forward to seeing you!

Frequently Asked Questions
Where should I park for Easter Services?
We have 4 parking lots for you to utilize on Easter. There are two surface parking lots – across NE 47th Street (North Lot) and across 15th Ave NE (West Lot). You can also park in the above-ground garage across 15th Ave NE from the church (4545 Garage). Please be sure to use the crosswalks to get to the building.
You can find more information and maps to our parking lots HERE.
If I require accessible parking or have limited mobility, where should I park?
We have two options for individuals requiring accessible parking. First, we will have a “Limited Mobility Drop Off Zone” on 15th Ave NE with access to the building only 15 feet away. Second, our underground garage will be available, with direct access to the building. The underground garage is located on 16th Ave NE. There will be plenty of signage directing you to either location.
Where do I enter the building?
We have a large church, and it can be a little confusing where our “front door” is located! On Easter, we will utilize the glass doors on the corner of 15th Ave NE and NE 47th St as our main entrance. We ask that everyone enter the building through those doors unless requiring limited mobility access from the drop-off zone.
If you need assistance entering the building, we will have greeters ready to help you enter through the wooden doors by the limited mobility drop-off zone.
When should I arrive for a service?
We will start each service promptly at its scheduled time, so be sure to arrive with enough time to find parking, cross the street, and find your seat in the sanctuary or balcony. We will keep the sanctuary and balcony closed until 15 minutes prior to each service start time. Anyone who arrives more than 15 minutes prior to a service will be asked to wait in a line that begins in the hallway leading into our lobby (Narthex).
What happens if I am running late for a service?
If you find yourself a little behind schedule, that is okay! We ask that you still enter through the glass doors, located on 15th and 47th, and head to the lobby. If there is space in the sanctuary or balcony, an usher will help you find a seat at the appropriate time of the service.
In the event that we are at full capacity in the sanctuary and balcony, we will have a designated overflow seating area in the narthex/lobby area with a live broadcast of the service.
Will there be Children’s Programming?
Children’s programming is offered for birth to kindergarten at the 9:30 and 11:00 am services only. Older kids join their families in the services! Across the lobby from the sanctuary, Knox Family Room will be equipped with toys, rocking chairs, and children’s activities for families during all three services.
Will there be hot chocolate and coffee available?
OF COURSE! And scones and strawberries too!
