At 6:30am on Easter Sunday, April 17th, 2022, Kiwanis of Anna Maria Island will celebrate the 57th anniversary of the Sunrise Service held at the Manatee County Public Beach.  The crowd normally numbers 1200- 2000 people.  There is ample parking. Trolley will be up and running at 6:00am.  The Anna Maria Beach Café will also open at 6:30am if you need that cup of java.  Bring chairs or a blanket to sit on and dress to the weather.

It is truly an uplifting service as all the Island churches participate.  Father Matthew Grunfeld of Episcopal Church of the Annunciation will deliver the opening prayer. Rev. Ed Moss of Crosspointe will deliver scriptures. Rev. Doug Kings will deliver the sermon. Rev. Stephen King of Harvey Memorial will deliver the offering prayer. Rev. Dirk Rogers of

Roser Church will deliver the benediction.

Inspirational Easter music for singing will be provided.  All are welcome to join in.

Come and share this celebration on the beach as we show our gratefulness for this Island, we call our Paradise.

The Offertory collected will be divided among the participating churches and the Kiwanis Club of Anna Maria for their SCF Key Club Scholarship program.
