Kiwanis Sunrise Service

The Kiwanis Club of Anna Maria Island’s 49th Annual Sunrise Service will be held at the Manatee County Public Beach at 6:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday, March 31.

All the Island churches participate in this spectacular event. The invocation this year will be delivered by Rev. Dee deMontmollin, of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation. Rev. Ed Moss, of Crosspointe Fellowship, will be giving the sermon, “Because of The Resurrection.” Rev. Stephen King, of Harvey Memorial Church, and the Rev. Gary Batey, of Roser Community Church, will share Easter Scripture with the crowd. The Rev. Rosemary Backer, of the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, will give the offertory prayer and Father Michael Mullen, of St. Bernard Catholic Church, will give the Benediction.

Daniel Paul Anzaldo , accompanied by Drew Thomas, will provide music.

Come share this celebration on the beach. All funds raised are equally divided among the participating churches. Some of the organizations which have benefited from this event are The Manatee OutReach programs; Feeding Empty Little Tummies; CAMPABLE, a place for memory disabled young people; and the Catholic Faith Appeal Outreach program of the Diocese of Venice.
