Featured Events outdoor worship image

April 4, 2021

11:00am – 12:15pm

Now’s the time, if you’ve been waiting, we hope that you will participate in-person on Easter Sunday with us, and bring a friend. We want everyone to feel free to worship with us on Easter, and to invite anyone they know, so we are going outdoors! View our "How to Participate" Guide here.

  • Time: 11am
  • Location: Edgewood Field at Edgewood Park in Westville (at the corner of Yale Ave. and Edgewood Ave., across from Edgewood School). Bring your own outdoor chairs and picnic blankets.
  • Parking: Across the street from the field, at Edgewood School.
  • Rain Plan: In the event of inclement weather, we will make the call by 8am that morning and post any updates online at cpcnewhaven.org/cancellations. If it rains we will have our normal service at CPC indoors and online at 11am.
  • Policies: Please maintain social distance and wear masks when moving around. The State recently released additional guidelines for outdoor religious services that could be read to require the wearing of a mask even when seated; however, the guidelines are ambiguous. We leave it to your discretion whether to remove your mask once seated.
  • Invitations: Hard copy invitations may be found in the foyer, or digitally here.
  • Reserve a Picnic Basket or Pie: Stay outside afterwards to enjoy a picnic basket or pie provided by CPC from Lyman Orchards (or bring them home). Extras will be available if you did not sign up in advance.
  • Sign-In: As part of our Edgewood Field usage, we are required by the city to collect information for Covid-19 contact tracing. If you plan to attend our Easter Sunday Service 4/4/21 you can give us your information in advance, so that all you need to do on Sunday when you arrive is check-in, or you can do it all in-person on Sunday. Thanks for your help in advance. Please fill out one form per household here.

On Easter Sunday, those who have become members of CPC throughout the past year, and those becoming members this day, will be presented in front of the congregation to join in the taking of membership vows. In preparation, we ask that all Life Groups watch and discuss the NEW Membership Seminar, and that those seeking to pursue membership contact Annie (annie.mchugh@cpcnewhaven.org). Find the class here.

There will be no service on-site at CPC, though you may watch live on YouTube (cpcnewhaven.org/live), and a recording will be available after the service (see the link for archived services under “After the Worship Service”).
