FARMINGTON – The annual Farmington area Easter sunrise service will begin at 5:25 a.m. Sunday, March 27, on Voter Hill in West Farmington.

All are invited to join members of participating churches to gather in the early dawn to wait for sunrise and a half hour service of Easter hymns, prayer, and Bible readings celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Bagpipes, played by Scott Walmer, will announce the first rays of the sun.

Voter Hill is about two miles from the Farmington Bridge and traffic signals. Travel past Maxwell’s Market on Route 43, turn left on to Morrison Hill Road, then turn right on to Voter Hill. Go past WKTJ radio station to the foot of Voter Hill. Turn left and go straight up to the intersection with Mohawk Drive. Parking is along the sides of the road.

The service will be conducted near the intersection, away from traffic, in the yard of Paul and Sue Taylor. Following the service, muffins and beverages will be served indoors by the Taylors, assisted by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. There is no charge.

Coordinators this year are Lisa Ellrich, Carolyn Balsam and Irene Berry.
