For half a century, Ruth Brown has attended Rosebank United Methodist Church.
One of her favorite services of the year is the Easter Sunrise Service. "We've had it on and off through the years for about 30 years, said Brown, of the service which is held outdoors if at all possible.
"We have it outdoors if the weather is good. If it rains or snows, it's inside," said Brown, who explained that the church teams up with it's sister church, Zion United Methodist, for the sunrise service. "If it's really cold, you have to wear a coat. Mostly it's cool, damp, and chilly. Occasionally it's pretty and nice but that's a rarity," said Brown.
