    You can enter the Cokesbury UMC parking lot from either entrance on Idlewild Road. Please look for signs showing you wear to pull in and our host team will help guide you where to park.

    You will see a large tent where we will gather for worship, but if the weather is hot, we may be in the fellowship hall.

    Based on guidelines from the CDC and the state of North Carolina, if you are fully vaccinated, masks are no longer required to attend New City services. If you are unvaccinated, or are still uncomfortable unmasked, we recommend you continue to wear yours. Learn more on our New City Sundays page.

    All adults entering the NextGen areas will continue to wear masks. Our kids (Pre-K and up) and students and volunteers in our NextGen ministries will wear masks during classes.

    We have childcare for babies through age 4 indoors during our Sunday service.

    Our NextGen team continues to partner with parents to raise up the next generation of Christ followers. Our NextGen Sunday Experience is created weekly for kids and students and offers age-appropriate videos from their leaders, worship songs, curriculum, and activities. You can also find a list of other resources including conversation guides, YouTube videos, family-friendly apps to download, and more on our NextGen Resources page.
