Easter Sunrise Service 2020

Join us for this annual gathering held at the summit of the 440-acre camp and conference center near Felton. A 24-foot-high cross marks the location for the sunrise service, and just up the hill from Mount Hermon’s Ponderosa Lodge. The view over Scotts Valley and the San Lorenzo Valley is spectacular, and the setting serene and perfect for the occasion.
In response to the COVID-19 shelter in place orders, this event has been canceled for 2020

We plan to continue the tradition for Easter 2021!
