On March 27, 2016, the Colorado Council of Churches will host its 69th Easter Sunrise Service at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. This a truly unique worship experience that draws people from all across Colorado, the Rocky Mountain region and rest of the nation. Last year, the service had an estimated 14,000 attendees (a record crowd) and another 7,000 people watched the service online (an all-time high). Given the spectacular venue and the wonderful service, it’s no wonder that so many people have this event on their “Bucket List.” You may view past Easter Sunrise Services on YouTube.

To fund the event, Colorado Council of Churches relies on donations collected the morning of the service. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to The Colorado Council of Churches that will be earmarked for the Easter Sunrise Service by March 15, 2016. You may do so online or by mailing a check payable to the “Colorado Council of Churches” to: Adrian Miller, Executive Director, Colorado Council of Churches, 1140 W. 5th Avenue, Denver, CO 80204. Please write “Easter Sunrise Service” on the memo line so that your donation goes to the right place.
