Easter Sunrise Service: a Bright Tradition on Robinson Pond

April 1, 2016

It was a cold gray morning at 7 a.m. as the First Baptist Church of Hudson held its annual Sunrise Service at the boat ramp on Robinson Pond.  Still, compared to last year’s service, this one was warmer and without all the snow.  The birds were chirping, which was a welcome sign to prove that spring is near.

People showed up to pray and sing hymns in celebration of Easter.  Rev. Moa Imchen led a beautiful service in which he mentioned the Belgian terrorist attacks and, how that even though there has been so much tragedy in the news, Christ is alive.

The church has been a staple for many years in the Hudson community.  Rev. Moa became a pastor at this church in July of 2014 after he and his family moved to New Hampshire from San Francisco.  The church has been offering Easter Sunrise services for many years, and Rev. Moa happily continues the tradition.
