Community Easter Sunrise Service Slated for 7 a.m. April 9

Continuing the tradition of bringing the community together in the Gospel, Life Point Baptist Church has announced that the annual Community Easter Sunrise Service will be held at 7 a.m. Easter Sunday, April 9, at the Early Visitors and Events Center in Early, TX.

“The Community Easter Sunrise Service is one of my favorite events all year,” Pastor Leland Acker said. “This is where we get to gather with friends and neighbors, worship together, and truly feel the Lord’s presence as the sun rises on Resurrection Sunday.”

This year’s service will include a few minor changes to the program.

“At Life Point, we’ve come to believe that true worship is participatory, so we’ll be incorporating more group participation into this year’s service. We’ll be adding responsive readings, focusing on congregational hymns, and we will pray together as well.”

As has been the case since 2019, the Community Sunrise Service will be held at the Early Visitors and Events Center at 419 Garmon Drive.

“It’s truly an amazing venue,” Acker said. “We gather at the outdoor stage, and the sun rises to our left as we worship. There are comfortable restrooms inside, and if bad weather breaks out, we can retreat indoors.”

Acker added there is plenty of parking, and the outdoor stage area can be quickly and easily accessed from the parking lot.

For more information on the Community Easter Sunrise Service, visitors can follow the event page on Facebook, or contact Pastor Acker at (325) 200-8531.

“All are welcome,” Acker said. “This event is for the entire community.”
