Hometown Easter Service
Sunday, April 1, 2012 :: 10:45 AM
If you love those Easter Programs presented by a church choir, you can find that here in the Smokies! My personal favorite is the one presented by First Baptist Sevierville. They will be presenting this year’s Music Service on Sunday, April 1, 2012 at the 10:45 AM service. For more information, contact the church office at 865-453-9001.

Gatlinburg’s Annual Easter Sunrise Service will be enhanced by the beauty of the Smokies when the community and its visitors gather at Ober Gatlinburg for this memorable worship service. This will be the 12th year for the mountain top services at the resort. The 30-40 minute high mountain service will be led by local pastors of the Gatlinburg Ministerial Association. The offering collected during the service will be used by the Association in assisting the county’s needy.
As host for the Sunrise Service, the staff of Ober Gatlinburg will provide worshipers with free tram rides to the mountain top beginning at 5:45 A.M. and continuing at 15 minute intervals until the service begins at 6:30 A.M. Complimentary parking at the resort will be provided for those who prefer to drive up the mountain. A breakfast buffet will be available at the Ober Gatlinburg Restaurant from 7:15 – 10:30 A.M.
Breakfast Buffet Menu:
Orange Juice, Milk, Coffee and Tea
Adults: $12.95 Children $9.95
Easter Egg Hunt
Beautiful Easter Church Service
Sunday, April 24, 2012 :: 8:15 am and 10:45 am
Whether you just love Easter services, and could enjoy hitting a second one after the Sunrise Service, or you can’t get yourself to get up that early, but you’d still like to attend an Easter Service, here’s another option for you! I’m sure every church in the area will be holding an Easter Service. Many of them at their normal service times, allowing you to sleep in a bit. Find one that’s right for you. If you don’t know where to start, I would recommend First Baptist Sevierville again! They have a talented church choir and orchestra to lead the music, as well as a dynamic, extremely smart, and captivating preacher. You won’t want to miss it! Call the church office for more information : 865-453-9001.
Rise and Shine!!! Sunrise Service @ 6:30 with breakfast to follow. Morning service starts @ 10:00, worship @ 11:00, and Easter Egg Hunt after church!
