Easter Sunrise Worship Service and Breakfast were celebrated at 6:30 a.m. at the home of Linda & Scott Mitchell located on the Mattaponi River in Walkerton, VA.  It was a beautiful morning and all in attendance were witness to the 3 deer who emerged from the woods to drink water from the river, the ducks, geese, birds and all of God's creatures who were all around us.  It was a beautiful service.

Easter Service was held at Mizpah UMC at 9:00 a.m. as noted in the adjoining photos.  Pastor Betty Jo Sims is shown delivering her sermon behind the beautifully decorated alter.
