Easter is our busiest Sunday of the year, so we appreciate your patience with our Parking Team, as they help to organize the flow and get you parked as quickly as possible.

Some specific things that you can do to help us:

  • Follow the directions of our signs and parking greeters (in reflective vests).
  • Be prepared to park on the field if you’re coming in off Price Rd, in our parking lot if you’re coming in off Southern Ave, or possibly across the street in the Rio Salado parking lot if we run out of spaces.
  • If you end up parking across the street, please be careful when crossing the street and obey all traffic laws.
  • Give us and other drivers grace! We’re going to do the best we can to get everyone in and out in as timely a manner as possible, so please help us in that endeavor by being patient and being willing to follow our directions.

What to Expect

  • Good Friday: At these services, we get the opportunity to reflect on the beauty of Christ’s sacrifice for us at the cross. This service will be similar to our normal Sundays with worship music, a message, and communion taken together.
  • Easter Sunday: During our Easter services, we get to celebrate the hope of the resurrection and Christ’s coming kingdom. We do this by glorifying him through worship in song, a message, and time for prayer.
  • New Here? If you’re new to Redemption Tempe, we’d love to meet you! Stop by the info desk in the lobby or the book tables after the service and introduce yourself.
  • New Christian? If you have recently come to faith in Christ, we would love to meet you after whichever Easter service you are at and give you a gift! Also, note that we will be celebrating with Baptisms next Sunday (4/28), which you can sign up for HERE
  • Have Questions? Lastly, whether you’re new to Redemption Tempe or have been coming for awhile, if you find yourself with any questions at all this weekend, please feel free to ask any of our staff and volunteers with nametags. We’d love to help point you in the right direction of R/KIDS check in, answer questions you might have, and help you get connected to the life of the church.

We’re looking forward to celebrating with you this weekend! If you have any other questions about our services this weekend, please feel free to email me at
