Easter means more than dressing up pretty

There was a great enjoyment in the Easter Sunrise Service, 6 AM, Sunday, April 1. St. Stephens used Sunday for a threefold purpose: the excitement of resurrection, beauty in the service, and the regular Sunday Communion. The combined choir rendered music. They day was great.
