25th Easter service at Prosperity ARP set

Posted on Monday, March 25, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Prosperity Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church of Taft will celebrate its 25th Annual Easter Sunrise Service at 6:15 a.m. on March 31, Easter Sunday morning.

The service is modeled after the famous historic sunrise service at Old Salem, Winston Salem, N.C.

The Fayetteville AR Presbyterian Church Choir will provide special music. There will be brass assisting in the service.

The service begins in the church before sunrise with the historic declaration, “The Lord is risen!” and its response, “He is risen indeed!” After hearing the Biblical resurrection narratives and singing hymns of Easter, the congregation proceeds silently to the beautiful Prosperity Cemetery with the brass playing hymns as a reminder of the transporting moment when the trumpet of the Lord will sound and the Lord will call all of the saints of all the ages to meet Him.

The service will conclude with scripture and singing in the cemetery.

After the service, coffee and doughnuts will be served in the dining room.
