Cloudy skies didn’t dampen spirits for about a dozen congregation members of the First Presbyterian Church who celebrated Easter with a sunrise service Sunday, March 31. The service — which began at 6:50 a.m. — was the church’s fifth annual and was held in its community garden, 495 E. Third St.

The Rev. Everett Bosch led the service using a simple wooden cross draped with a white cloth as a backdrop.

Hay bales soaked by thunderstorms the night before were covered with plastic for participants to sit on for the service.

Bosch read several passages about Easter. Hymnals were performed by Ina Brekke-Danforth, the church’s music director, and Ken Cefalo, of Main Street Music.
