Frequently Asked Questions

What is the "special church presentation" at 10:00am on Sunday?

We are inviting church members and visitors to join us on Sunday morning for our 10:00am performance. This performance will take place of regular worship on Sunday, and the childcare age is extended through 3rd grade. Children in Kindergarten and up are welcome to attend The Promise, but due to the graphic realism of the production, parents are encouraged to use their discretion as to what's appropriate for their child.

Will any of the performances be live-streamed?

Yes! The Sunday, March 27th performance at 7:00pm will be the ONLY live-streamed performance. You can watch it at

Will there be regular worship services on Sunday morning (March 27th)?

No, there will not be regular worship services on Sunday, March 27th. Sunday School will not meet as the rooms are being used for the cast to get in makeup and costume. The 10:00am performance will NOT be live-streamed, only the 7:00pm performance that night.

About The Promise

Celebrate the Easter season with the Park Avenue's The Promise!

While the location of the production is in the Park Avenue United Methodist Church Sanctuary, the sights, sounds and aromas have created a first century Jerusalem marketplace. Jesus' life is portrayed from His glorious birth to the Resurrection and empty tomb, and the gospel message is proclaimed.

The crew, choir and cast of hundreds of men, women and children put in countless hours of prep, set up, and rehearsal with one mission in mind — to tell the story of the Gospel. And yes, we have a lot of fun along the way!

The two-hour production is FREE and open to the public. Because seating is limited, we recommend that you arrive early to get a good seat. The sanctuary opens 45 minutes prior to the performance. The Sunday, March 27th 7:00pm performance will be live-streamed at

Because of the graphic realism of the production, it is not recommended for young children, and so we provide a nursery for children 6-weeks through Pre-K (age 4). There is blood, smoke, and loud noises — all part of the play.
