Over 150 people attend the 91st-annual event held at the Granada Beach Approach.
For 91 years, Ormond Beach Riverside Church has been meeting in the early hours of Easter Sunday to host a Sunrise Service right on the ocean.
Looking over at the crowd of 150 residents bundled up in blankets and hoodies, Pastor Mike Carruthers said they were blessed for the windy weather that morning.
“At least it’s not raining like last year,” he chuckled.
The church’s annual Easter Celebration Sunrise Service was held at 6:30 a.m. at the Granada Beach Approach. People gathered around the beach to listen to the message “From the Cross to the Resurrection,” and to the musical performance by the family group Great Day.
