Easter Sunday is a day of traditions. Many people make this their annual day to attend a church service. Others like to go to an Easter Sunrise Service. In the Village of Oak Creek you can do both.
The annual Community Easter Sunrise Service is at Kiwanis Park next to the Oak Creek Country Club clubhouse, at 690 Bell Rock Blvd., Sedona, 86351. Easter is on April 1st this year. The service will begin at 6:30 a.m. and include music, readings, scripture and a message, all designed to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.Chairs and hot drinks will be provided. Dress warm and consider bringing a blanket. No pets, please. If you have questions call 702-810-4048.
