Easter Sunrise Services in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach NC

Picture of cross at sunriseOne of my earliest Easter memories isn't a basket full of candy, or a new outfit.  It's sunrise services on a knoll in the cemetary next to the church.  I remember waking before the sun was up, dressing in my finery and riding to the services with my step-mother.  It may have been Spring, but it was always freezing; though I wouldn't admit that -- didn't want to cover up my new Easter outfit with an icky old winter coat!   Easter Sunrise Services have always been very special to me.  There's just something so reverent about hearing the story of the Resurrection read from the King James Version of the Bible and singing hymns as the sun rises.  Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.

Here in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach NC, there are plenty of places to attend Easter Sunrise Services.  Here are just a few:

North Pointe Community Church 10th Easter Celebration at the Beach at 7 a.m. Sunday at the Oceanic Pier at Wrightsville Beach. Information: 617-0796.      Picture of lily

Pine Valley Baptist Church Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30 a.m. Sunday on the deck of the Battleship U.S.S. North Carolina. Information: 791-1949.

Easter Sunrise Services for Wrightsville Beach community churches 6:45 a.m. Sunday on the beach strand at Oxford Street, Access #19.

First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) sunrise worship, 6:30 a.m. Sunday near the pond in Hugh MacRae Park. Information: 762-1389.

In whatever way you choose to celebrate Easter, I wish you all the Blessings of Easter's Promise.

Nothing quite like Easter Sunrise Services on the beach.  Though having them on the deck of the Battleship North Carolina sounds pretty cool too!

Hi Tish...I remember dressing up too!  We are planning to go to the 8:00 service and I think that is very early!  Hubby likes hymns though (even though his darling wife like Praise and Worship songs) so that's when will go...lol

Have a happy Easter my friend!

Happy Easter
