Let the celebration begin! Local churches to host Easter sunrise services

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Some things are just too good to wait. As a result, many local churches will continue the long-standing tradition of celebrating Jesus Christ’s resurrection through sunrise Easter services Sunday.

As the sun peaks through nighttime darkness, it is more than just a pretty picture; the scene is symbolic of what transpired a long time ago. There will be two sunrise services to celebrate Christ rising from the grave. Both will begin at 6:30 a.m. One will take place at Ashley Pond while the other will be at Overlook Park in White Rock.

Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, the United Church of Los Alamos, Christian Church and First United Methodist Church are taking part in the worship at Ashley Pond, which also includes live music from Quemazon Brass.

“The sunrise service is always a great event,” said Rev. Doug Partin of the Christian Church. “There are numerous churches in town that take part in it, which is a great witness to the unity of the church.” He added, “It’s a confirming event of our faith. It’s good time for families to come together. It’s a reminder that early morning on the third day, Jesus rose from the dead. It’s a connection to that historical event.”
