Doors open for annual sunrise Easter service at Red Rocks Amphitheater at 4:30 a.m. this Sunday, April 8. The service begins at 6 a.m.
This year the music will be provided by Jakarta Praise, a band former by Isaac Points of Denver, according to a Red Rocks news release. Points has performed gospel music at Park Hill United Methodist Church and New Hope Baptist Church.
The sermon will be given by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, who is a deacon at New Hope Baptist Church.
Parking and admission are free, although COMPA Food Ministry will collect non-perishable food items.
Monetary donations will be accepted, with 10 percent going to homeless shelters and the rest used to offset the cost of the service.
Last year's service drew an estimated 10,000 people.
