The Community Easter Sunrise Service is Back!

It is with great joy that the Point Pleasant/Bay Head Area Churches announce the return of the Easter sunrise service! For the past two years we were prevented from offering this decades-old tradition due to the ongoing pandemic, but we are coming back this year with a few temporary modifications. Due to staffing issues, Jenkinson’s is unable to host us for the service, so we will be meeting on the Karge Street Beach in Bay Head. Because of local regulations, we cannot begin the service before 7am. Note that the beach access at Karge Street is not handicapped accessible and if you’re planning to attend you should bring a folding chair or a blanket to sit on. A free-will offering will be taken to benefit St. Gregory’s food pantry in Point Pleasant Beach. Questions about the service can be directed to Rev. Don Stevens at (732) 892-3233 or In case of inclement weather, we will move the service to St. Paul’s UMC in Bay Head (Bridge Ave and West Lake Ave).

Plan to begin your Easter morning with this special community tradition brought to you as a cooperative effort of the local churches.
