April 7, 2023

It's exactly 250 years since the first Easter sunrise service in the U.S. And many locations continue to host a sunrise service.

One service will happen at the Bald Knob Cross, in deep southern Illinois. The 111-foot-tall cross is one of the largest in the U.S., and it has a strong agricultural tie. The cross rises like a beacon, and a monument of peace and hope. The service this Sunday will have both contemporary and traditional pieces.
