Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park to Host 47th Annual Easter Sunrise Service

April 20, 2014 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

Luminaries in the form of a cross will light up a small hill as more than 1,000 community members gather at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park for the 47th annual Easter Sunrise Service. Nearby, in the garden of Gethsemane shepherds and their dogs tend a small flock of sheep.

The service will be held April 20 beginning at 6 a.m. at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park, 5600 Lindero Canyon Road in Westlake Village, just north of the 101 Freeway. The service, open to all in the community, is sponsored by the Conejo Valley Interfaith Association.

“Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks’ Easter Sunrise Service is one of the most anticipated events in our community, and one that many have attended for decades,” said Tammy Eacker, general manger at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park, a proud Dignity Memorial® provider. “We are delighted to once again work with the Conejo Valley Interfaith Association to provide an inspirational start to a glorious day, and a gathering place where multi-generational families come to celebrate.”

Dr. Gary Alan Dickey will lead the procession and lighting of Easter candles playing “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes. During the service, the Rev. Craig Beeker will present the Easter message, “Is There Any Hope?” Scripture readings, music and song, prayers, proclamations, and a beautiful setting along with live sheep will inspire all who attend this moving non-denominational service. An offering will be collected and used to assist the Lutheran Social Services Agency of Thousand Oaks for outreach to the needy in the area.

Light refreshments will be served following the celebration. For more information and directions, call Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park at (818) 889-0902.
