MC offers virtual Easter Sunrise Service 

April 9, 2020

Maryville College will offer a virtual Easter Sunrise Service on Sun., April 12 at 8 a.m. All are invited to tune in to watch on the Maryville College Center for Campus Ministry’s Facebook page

The Rev. Dr. Anne D. McKee, campus minister, will deliver the sermon, titled “Again.” Scripture for the sermon will be Jeremiah 31:3-6 and Matthew 28:1-10.

Dr. Tom Bogart, Maryville College president, will play two Easter hymns on the piano.

“It is, indeed, strange, this year, not to gather at Lloyd Beach to mark the resurrection together, and it is little comfort that it is probably going to rain, anyway, which would have chased us indoors,” McKee said. “But we remember that the good news of Easter doesn’t ever depend on our celebration, but on God’s love, which, Jeremiah reminds us, is unfailing – in all times and places, in all circumstances. So we wish you health and even joy, as you find quiet ways to celebrate the resurrection, and we will look forward to the time to come, when we will gather again.”
