Sunrise Presbyterian Church welcomes all to gather to worship, to learn, and to serve. Worship is at the heart of our community life: each worship service is rooted in the hopes, fears, cares, and concerns that confront all of us and is infused with the good news that God is continually present in life’s joys and troubles.
Church services are at 9 and 11 a.m. on Sundays. Please come join us as we worship by the ocean on Sullivan’s Island. Any of the people in the congregation will be happy to answer your questions and help you and your family feel comfortable.
Lent and Holy Week Services and Events:
Palm Sunday Worship, Easter Egg Hunt & Children’s Processional: April 9th. Worship Services will be held at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The Children’s Processional and Singing will be during the 11:00 a.m. service. There will be an Easter Egg Hunt at 10:00 a.m. Bring your baskets!
Maundy Thursday Service and Seder: April 13th at 6:00 p.m. We join the disciples in the Upper Room for their celebration of the Passover with Jesus. This is Jesus’ Last Supper. Around tables in the Fellowship Hall, we retell the events of the first Passover in a Jewish Seder Meal. The evening will close with communion. This is a wonderful family event that recalls the story of the Exodus, as well as the historic context for Jesus’ institution of The Lord’s Supper.
Good Friday – Service of Shadows: April 14th at 7:30 p.m. This service is an adaptation of an early fourth-century worship service, traditional to Holy Week. The church is well lighted at the beginning of the service. The lights dim as it continues, until, at the end, the sanctuary is shrouded in deep shadows. The gradual extinguishing of the lights and candles is symbolic of the flight of the disciples and the resentment of the world leading to the final isolation of Jesus on the cross. At the conclusion a bell is tolled thirty-three times, recalling each year of Christ’s life.
Easter Services; Celebration of the Resurrection: April 16th. The Community Easter Sunrise Service will be at 6:30 a.m. at Breach Inlet. The 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services will be in the Sanctuary.
