15th Annual Easter Sunrise Service Scheduled for Hillcrest Memorial Park

Inspirational service unites community’s religious leaders and musicians in inspiring morning celebration.

Early morning worshipers from throughout the Bakersfield area will join to celebrate a community tradition, Easter Sunrise Service at Hillcrest Memorial Park.  The April 8th service marks the 15th year this stirring service has united community members on the holiest day in Christianity.  The service begins at 6:00 a.m. and will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Park, 9101 Kern Canyon Road in Bakersfield.

“It is truly an honor to host this moving community tradition and to provide residents with a peaceful gathering place where they can worship and celebrate this holy day,” said Curtis Woods, general manger at Hillcrest Memorial Park, a proud Dignity Memorial® provider.  “The Easter Sunrise Service brings a renewed sense of hope and well-being to every participant.”

Senior Pastor Wendell Vinson from the Canyon Hills Assembly of God will deliver the Easter message. Scripture readings, music and song, prayers and proclamation, and a beautiful setting will inspire all who attend. Three crosses, which are stationed as a permanent feature at Hillcrest, serve as a moving backdrop for the service.

The Easter Sunrise Service is offered at no charge to community members and their guests.  Light refreshments will be served following the celebration.  Hillcrest Memorial Park is located at 9101 Kern Canyon Road, Bakersfield, CA 93306.  For more information and directions, call 661-366-5766.
