Easter Sunrise Service on Mount Battie
6:00am Easter morning, the top of Mount Battie overlooking Camden
Annually Chestnut Street Baptist Church gathers at the summit of Mt. Battie for an Easter Sunrise Service to celebrate our risen Lord and Savior. While the road to the top of Battie is opened, thanks to the generous rangers at Camden Hills State Park, many choose to hike to the summit for this service of celebration.
The service is followed by breakfast at the church (@7:00am), Sunday school (9:30am) and our Easter Worship Gathering (10:45am).
