VOC annual community Easter Sunrise Service at Kiwanis Park April 21

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 VOC Community Easter Sunrise Service, hosted by the Village of Oak Creek Community Church of the Nazarene (VocNaz), is at Kiwanis Park next to the Oak Creek Country Club clubhouse, at 690 Bell Rock Blvd., Sedona, Look for the Easter Sunrise Service signs.

Easter is on April 21st this year.

If you are looking for a church to attend on Easter Sunday, at 10:30 a.m., VocNaz will have music and a message that also celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, and what that means for you today and forever.
