The annual event was held outside in the Ridge Camp amphitheater in Cook Forest State Park on Sunday, April 9. It began at 7:00 a.m. with the flag-raising by BSA Troop 51 followed by At The Cross sung by the congregation.
Husband and wife Danny and Shawna Feliciano then performed a duet with the song Once and for All.
A solo of the hymn The Last Song and An Easter Hallelujah was sung by Laura Kahle.
Reverend Richard Helsel presented the invocation and scripture, and his wife, Reverend Heidi Helsel, gave the message: How Do We Know?
After Reverend Helsel’s message, Danny and Shawna sang Hallelujah Here Below, and Laura performed a solo of the hymn Victory in Jesus.
The congregation joined in on the singing with a hymn that was perfect for the occasion: Christ the Lord is Risen Today.
The service concluded around 8:00 a.m. with the Benediction given by Reverend Richard Helsel and the lowering of the flag by BSA Troop 51.
