Kiwanis 69th Sunrise Service set for Sunday

The Lebanon Kiwanis Club will sponsor its 69th annual Community Easter Sunrise Service on Sunday.

The event, which is a tradition for decades, is set to continue again this year at the Lebanon Square at 6:30 a.m.

This year’s Sunrise Service will feature two speakers, Pastor Stephen Manley of Cross Style Church and Pastor John Hunn of Immanuel Baptist Church. There will also be worship music at the service.

Additionally, there will also be a Rhett Walker Band concert on Saturday at 6 p.m. at the square, as well.

Kiwanis Club president Phil Carter said he was “pleasantly surprised with the amount of buzz this event is already creating.”

The Rhett Walker Band is a Christian rock band from the Lebanon area that released its debut studio album, “Come to the River,” in 2012.

“This band is really making headway in the music business,” Carter said. 

According to Carter, the band’s debut single and Grammy-nominated song, “When Mercy Found Me,” achieved placement on top radio station playlists and has landed on a multitude of Christian music charts.

Sean Patrick, an organizer for the event for the Kiwanis Club, said the idea is to come and be together Saturday night and highlight the services set for Sunday.

Food, such as hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks will be available during the concert for a minimal concession stand price. 

Services on both Saturday and Sunday are free.

Patrick said the club hoped to get as many churches involved as possible, and any and everyone is invited to attend the concert or Sunrise Service.

In the event of rain or inclement weather for either service, Patrick said it would move inside the Capitol Theatre.
