Santa Rosa Memorial Park is hosting the 42nd Annual Interdenominational Easter Sunrise Worship Service. This free event takes place at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 27 at 1900 Franklin Avenue in Santa Rosa.
Highlights of this Easter Sunrise Service which is a celebrated Christian service the world over, include an Easter Message by Pastor Jeff Johnson from the Cove. Worship will be provided by the Redwood Gospel Mission.
The service which starts early in the morning is timed so that those in attendance can see the sun rise during the service.
“We are pleased to offer this special, time honored service and welcome old and new friends alike to join us,” said Tim Maloney, General Manager of Santa Rosa Memorial Park.
Historically, this event has roots that date back to 18th century Saxony where communities gathered for all-night prayer vigils that were followed by visits to the nearby graveyard. There people sang hymns of praise to the Risen Savior who had overcome death.
All are welcome. Outdoor seating will be provided and warm clothing is advised. For information: (707) 542-1580.
