Salvation Army To Hold Traditional Easter Sunrise Service At National Cemetery

Monday, March 18, 2013

The Salvation Army will celebrate Easter with its traditional Easter Sunrise Service at the National Cemetery at 1200 Bailey Ave. beside the flag pole overlooking downtown Chattanooga.  

For the last 36 years, The Salvation Army has partnered with the National Cemetery for the Easter Sunrise Service.  

All are invited to worship at 7:30 a.m. as the sun rises over Chattanooga.   Music will be provided by the internationally acclaimed Jericho Brass band. The guest speaker, Salvation Army Area Commander Major Algerome Newsome, will deliver the message.   

The Salvation Army is expecting an attendance of more than 300. 

 Other Easter observances for Holy Week will be a Seder Meal on Monday, March 25, at 6:30 p.m. at The Salvation Army’s 614 Corps on McCallie Avenue.  The Seder Meal tells the story of God and his people and is a tradition among the Jewish people and Christians.  

Please RSVP at www.facebook.com/TSAChattanooga614/events. There will be a $5 charge at the door. 

On Good Friday, March 29, The Salvation Army on McCallie Avenue will host a “Tenebrae” service, meaning “darkness or shadows” in Latin.  This is an ancient Good Friday service that reflects on the events surrounding the last week of Jesus’ life and His death.  Special music will be performed by “Ten Bartram” featuring Rebekah Angel Rapp and Eleanor Angel.   

 For more information on The Salvation Army or this sunrise service, please contact Kimberly George at 423 308-7715 or email to Kimberly_George@uss.salvationarmy.org.
