Easter Sunrise Service Banner

Easter is always a special time at Mt. Gilead as we celebrate the Lord’s resurrection on top of the mountain at Inspiration Point, overlooking the Santa Rosa Valley.  It has been called  “The Sunrise Service with the most spectacular view,” by the Press Democrat.  

Following the service you will enjoy an incredible, hearty, warm breakfast in the Mt. Gilead Dining Hall.  Don’t miss out on making your own special memories right here at Mt. Gilead.  We can’t wait to see you!

"He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’" Luke 24:6-7

This year we are pleased to welcome our featured speaker and Mt. Gilead Alum, Mike Tonks to the podium as he shares the hope we have in Christ.  Mike has served in many ministry positions from Youth Pastor to Senior Pastor.  He and his wife, Leslie serve with the youth ministry at Calvary Chapel, The Rock.
