The 40th annual, interdenominational Easter sunrise service at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. is expected to draw thousands of Washingtonians and people from across the country and the world.
“At the dawn of Easter morning from the heart of the city that influences the world, thousands will gather to declare, CHRIST IS RISEN, HE IS RISEN INDEED!” says Pastor Amos Dodge, the founding pastor of Capital Church who will host the event along with his wife, Sue, and lead Pastors Travis and Tara Goodman.
“We will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, and the message will not only ring on the Washington mall, it will be heard around the world,” Dodge adds.
The special service has been featured on the cover of The Washington Post and been listed as No. 5 on the Washingtonian’s The Great Washington Bucket List.
“The music, the people, the message, and the view make this sunrise service one of the most unique ways to celebrate Easter Sunday morning,” the organizers say.
The service is produced by the worship and technical arts ministry of Capital Church, with the help of about 100 volunteers from within the congregation.
About 10,000 people are expected to attend the service Sunday morning at 6.30 a.m., and it will also be live-streamed on the Capital Church website.
