Looking for a memorable way to spend Easter morning? What better way than celebrating amongst the trees in one of the most majestic settings of all – nature, and just outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. More specifically, atop Mount Harrison at Ober Gatlinburg.
Gatlinburg’s Annual Easter Sunrise Service (March 31) is a sight to see each and every year with an inspirational message given at one of the most inspiring places int he Smokies. The region’s beauty really stands out when both locals from the community and visitors staying in the area gather at Ober Gatlinburg for this memorable worship service.
This will be the 16th year that Ober has held mountain top services at the resort. In all, it’s a 30-40 minute high mountain service which is led by local pastors of the Gatlinburg Ministerial Association. The offering collected during the service will be used by the Association in assisting the county’s needy.
As host for the Sunrise Service, the staff of Ober Gatlinburg will provide worshipers with free tram rides to the mountain top beginning at 5:45 A.M. and continuing at 15 minute intervals until the service begins at 6:30 A.M. Complimentary parking at the resort will be provided for those who prefer to drive up the mountain. A breakfast buffet will be available at the Ober Gatlinburg Restaurant from 7:15 – 10:30 A.M.
