Gatlinburg’s Annual Easter Sunrise Service will be enhanced by the beauty of the Smokies when the community and its visitors gather at Ober Gatlinburg for this memorable worship service. This will be the 12th year for the mountain top services at the resort.  The 30-40 minute high mountain service will be led by local pastors of the Gatlinburg Ministerial Association. The offering collected during the service will be used by the Association in assisting the county’s needy.

As host for the Sunrise Service, the staff of Ober Gatlinburg will provide worshipers with free tram rides to the mountain top beginning at 5:15 A.M. and continuing at 15 minute intervals until the service begins. Complimentary parking at the resort will be provided for those who prefer to drive up the mountain. A breakfast buffet will be available at the Ober Gatlinburg Restaurant beginning at 6:30 A.M.
