Sunrise services on Easter morning are a tradition like no other. There’s nothing like taking a quiet, early moment to reflect on the holiday alongside fellow members of the faith.

In the Huntsville area, there are several opportunities to attend a sunrise service this Easter (which falls on April 17 this year, by the way). Here are five we’ve found:

1. Epworth United Methodist Church
