“The Easter Sunrise Service is an awesome experience as we watch the sun come up and day grow brighter,” Lawler said. “What a wonderful way to celebrate our Risen Lord.”

The Easter Sunrise Service at Greenhills on Highway 29 South in Troy is set for 6:15 a.m.

Jamie Whitworth said the Rev. Louis Johnson of The Vine church will bring the message of Easter.

Whitworth said that watching the sunrise on Easter morning to a background of spiritual music is a meaningful and uplifting experience.

“Those who attend will be invited to breakfast following the service,” he said.

In the event of rain, the Brundidge service will be held at Salem Baptist Church and the Greenhills service will be in the chapel.
