Easter Services

We invite you to celebrate the joys of Easter with us: The good news that in Christ’s death and resurrection we, and all creation, are continually being made new!

Sunrise Service, 6:30 a.m., at The Ohio River Levee in Marietta, Ohio

Sunrise Service

6:30 a.m. at The Ohio River Levee

As the sunlight breaks over the Ohio River, we will remember that an empty tomb greeted Mary Magdalene as dawn broke on Easter morning. The place and time is unusual to us, giving a sense of newness and expectancy. Mary Magdalene must have felt those same emotions when she witnessed her Risen Lord. Where there appeared to be no hope, there is now hope. Where there was death, there is now resurrection!

Graduating Senior, Derek Duckworth, will provide the message and The Marietta Ukulele Choir will provide special music. Lawn chairs are welcome. In case of inclement weather, the service will be held in the church sanctuary.
