The 26th annual service will be held at First Security Amphitheater in Little Rock.
LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) - For the 26th consecutive year, thousands of people are expected to come together for a morning of communal worship at the 26th Annual Community Easter Sunrise Service. The service will be held on Sunday, April 20 at 7 a.m. at the First Security Amphitheater, 400 President Clinton Ave., Little Rock. This ecumenical service is organized to serve the central Arkansas community by Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church (PHUMC). The service has been in the same location since March 26, 1989.

2014 participants will include: Georgia Mjartan, Director of Our House; and Mr. Steve Straessle, Principal of Catholic High School for Boys. Music will be offered by the combined choirs of PHUMC, Philander Smith College, and Parkview Arts and Science Magnet High School. The 2014 co-chairs are Penny and Gordon Wilbourn.

The 26th Annual sunrise offering will go to support Our House, which provides the working homeless individuals and families with shelter, housing, job training, education, childcare and summer youth programs. Our House equips them with the skills to be successful in the workforce, community and their own families.

Attendees are encouraged to dress casual and bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. Pets are welcome with a leash.
