easter at the arena

Join us on Sunday, March 31, at 10:00 a.m. at the David S. Palmer Arena in Danville, IL, for a special Easter celebration that promises to uplift and inspire. Our 90-minute Easter service is designed to be a welcoming experience for everyone, whether it's your first time joining us or you're a regular Second Church attendee. This year, we're embracing the powerful theme "God's Got This," reminding us all that no matter the challenges we face—loneliness, financial troubles, addiction, or anything else—God is in control.

What to Expect

Our 90-minute Easter service features contemporary worship led by a full band and choir, creating an engaging and spiritual atmosphere. We will also share in the joy of Easter baptisms, a testament to new beginnings and the hope that Easter brings. Our pastors will deliver a message that ties into our theme, offering encouragement and a reminder of God's presence in our lives.

For Our Young Guests

We believe that everyone, no matter their age, should be able to partake in our Easter celebration. We offer busy boxes for our k-4th grade students to keep them entertained throughout the service.  

For our youngest guests, we offer nursery and preschool programming that provides a safe and nurturing environment for your children. This allows you to fully immerse yourself in the Easter service, knowing your children are cared for and engaged in age-appropriate activities.

Your Comfort is Our Priority

Wondering what to wear? We want you to feel at home with us. There is no dress code for our services, so we invite you to come as you are. Our congregation includes a wide range of styles, from casual to formal, so you'll fit right in regardless of how you choose to dress.

Parking Made Easy

We've taken the guesswork out of parking for the Easter service. Below, you'll find a detailed parking map that outlines all the available parking options, including regular and handicap parking areas. Our goal is to make your arrival and departure as smooth as possible, so you can focus on the celebration.
