Come join us!
Easter at Coolidge returns for its 9th year! Bring the family and your Easter baskets and join us Easter Sunday morning for this fun, community-cherished event that includes an egg hunt of over 100,000 eggs.
This event is FREE for the whole family. The egg hunt begins at 9 a.m. but be sure to arrive early to set up your lawn chairs in the park and take part in the other fun activities! After the egg hunt, grab your seat and enjoy songs of praise led by Stuart Heights’ Worship Choir and Orchestra, followed by a message of faith, hope and gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have over 100,000 Easter Eggs filled with treats and toys for the kids. The hunts begin at 9 AM with separate hunts for different age groups. There will also be a chance to get your kids face painted.
The service will begin at 10 AM with a 100-voice choir. There will also be a short Easter sermon followed by an opportunity to be baptized on-site in Coolidge Park in a portable baptistry! You can sit, stand, sing or just listen.
Alabanzas en Español
Este año vamos a tener porciones de nuestro culto en español. Animamos a nuestros amigos de habla hispana a unirse a nosotros este año! Estaremos unidos con la Iglesia Bautista de Chattanooga.
You will probably want to plan your arrival early. Although there is plenty of FREE parking, it does fill up quickly. We also offer shuttle services from nearby parking areas.
Face Painting Begins
While you get your game plan together for our massive egg-hunt, stop by one of our face-painting stations to get a makeover.

Pre-service Live Music
You will hear some of your favorite worship music beginning at 9:30. As you finish up your egg hunting or face painting, start making your way over to the main stage soon after you hear the band start up.
Join us at 10am for our open air worship service. You will hear music from our 100-Voice choir and band. You can sit, stand, sing along or just listen. Following the music portion of worship you will hear an encourage message from the Pastor of Stuart Heights, Gary Jared.
Baptisms in the Park
Maybe you've been meaning to follow through with baptism for some time. Lots of people who make decisions on Easter have followed through with believer's baptism right there in the park. We have a portable heated baptistry that will be on site Easter Sunday. If you would like to be baptized on Easter Sunday at Coolidge Park just follow the signage following the service. Our baptistry will be set up near the Pavilion next to the fountains.

We hope you will stick around and have a pic nic in the park with us. You can pack a lunch or you can purchase lunch from any of the local restaurants in the park. There will also be several food trucks on hand to serve up some delicious lunches. Don't forget the frisbee or football!

This is possibly my favorite worship service of the year! Can't wait.
My family and I look forward to this service all year long. It's such a great day in the park!
My daughter absolutely loves the egg hunt!
