Kailua Community Church welcomed the community and their pets to a special Easter sunrise non denominational service at Kailua Beach Park on the great lawn across from Buzz’s. When Buddy the dog arrived it was dark, but as the sun rose people and their pets trickled in for the morning songs and worship. Pastor Dan Stringer called out to to the congregation, “he is risen indeed”. The vocalists were accompanied by guitar players as they sang hymns.
People brought blankets and sat on the grass with their families, friends and pets. Some of the people passing by commented on how nice it would be to have more morning services in the future at the park and welcome all.
Kailua Community Church is located at 250 Oneawa Street, Kailua and serves a continental breakfast before each service.
