Santa Rosa Memorial Park is hosting the 43nd Annual Interdenominational Easter Sunrise Worship Service. This free event takes place at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 16 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 Rod Bowman of Westview Christian Church. Praise and Worship will be led by Lennie Trujillo with the Redwood Gospel Mission.
The service is timed to start early in the morning 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 and Crematorium. This local business has been serving North Bay families since 1885.
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.
