Lincoln Memorial Stages One of The Nation’s Largest Easter Sunrise Services, With Over 6000 in Attendance Each Year

WASHINGTON, April 4, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — A Washington Tradition for 34 years — On Easter Sunday morning, April 8, 2012, over 6000 people will gather at the Lincoln Memorial for one of the nation’s largest Sunrise Services, hosted by Capital Church of Vienna, Virginia, Pastor Amos Dodge.
At 6:30 a.m., as the sun begins to rise over the Capitol dome, the mall will ring with sounds of celebration as Pastor Dodge leads those in attendance, in the hope-filled proclamation and celebration of Easter’s message. 

“This is not an event we sponsor but an assignment we have to our city, nation and world,” says Pastor Dodge.  “To joyfully, powerfully and boldly proclaim that ‘Jesus Christ is Risen!'”

The annual interdenominational service will include live orchestra, choir and worship. 

Those attending are encouraged to dress comfortably.  A coat or a blanket is suggested for the often brisk morning. Directed parking provided.

For more information contact Capital Church at (703) 757-1200 or visit www.capitalchurch.net.

Media parking available on Henry Bacon Drive. Photos available upon request.
