Easter begins in Guilford with a bonfire sunrise service at 6:30am at the north side of the church. Pastor Lise Sparrow and Rev. Larrimore Crockett will lead the service which combines shared reading of John's gospel of the resurrection with traditional hymns. Afterwards everyone is invited to the annual pancake breakfast in the Rosa Zeller Hall.
At 10AM all ages are invited to the family service of lessons and anthems based on the resurrection story. Choirmaster Peter Amidon will lead Easter favorites including "Bells of Norwich", "Billings' Easter Anthem", "The Man in the Middle" and Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus".
