The Salvation Army Celebrates Easter with Annual Sunrise Service at the National Cemetery

The Salvation Army will celebrate Easter with its traditional Easter Sunrise Service at the National Cemetery at 1200 Bailey Avenue beside the flag pole overlooking beautiful downtown Chattanooga!  For the last 36 years, The Salvation Army has partnered with the National Cemetery for the Easter Sunrise Service.  All are invited to worship at 7:30 AM as the sun rises over Chattanooga.

Music will be provided by the internationally acclaimed Jericho Brass band.  Our guest speaker, Salvation Army Area Commander Major Algerome Newsome, will deliver the message.  Come celebrate Easter with The Salvation Army at the Sunrise Service! The Salvation Army is expecting an attendance of more than 300.

Other Easter observances for Holy Week will be a Seder Meal on Monday, March 25th, at 6:30 PM at The Salvation Army’s 614 Corps on McCallie Avenue.  The Seder Meal is an interactive evening that tells the story of God and His people.  A tradition among Jewish people as a part of the Passover Celebrations, it is also meaningful to Christians as a way to consider the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.  There will be a $5.00 charge at the door.  Click here to RSVP.  

On Good Friday, March 29, at 7 PM, The Salvation Army on McCallie Avenue will host a “Tenebrae” service, meaning “darkness or shadows” in Latin.  This is an ancient Good Friday service that reflects on the events surrounding the last week of Jesus’ life and His death.  Special music will be performed by “Ten Bartram” featuring Rebekah Angel Rapp and Eleanor Angel.
