Sunday To-Do: Community Easter Sunrise Service



7 a.m., Riverfest Amphitheatre. Free.

Since 1989, the Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church has hosted this ecumenical service down by the river. Every year, it brings in community leaders, students and area choirs and vocalists to fill the program. This year marks the 18th — and last — community sunrise service Pulaski Heights' Rev. Vic Nixon will preside over; he's retiring in June. He'll be joined by Mayor Stodola; Arkansas First Lady Ginger Beebe, who's reading the gospel scripture; Assistant Little Rock City Manager Bryan Day and his wife Betsey; Stacy Sells; Dr. Jeffrey Hampton; Rev. Lynn Lindsey; Central High sophomore Ty Spradley and the Allison Presbyterian Church dance ministry. Plus, there'll be music by instrumentalists Ozark Point Brass, the Christway Missionary Baptist Church Choir, the Philander Smith College choir, two Parkview High School choirs, the Pulaski Heights United Methodist choirs and baritone vocalist Isaiah Bailey from Central High. A community offering benefits local charities Village Commons and City Connections.
