Haven of Rest hosts Easter sunrise service

Easter sunrise service

For more than 30 years, Haven of Rest Funeral Home and Cemetery has invited the community Gig Harbor, Key Peninsula and extended communities to its annual Easter Morning Sunrise Service. Sunday (April 5) marks another year of offering people the chance to watch the sunrise and remember loved ones who have gone before us while gazing out onto the vistas of Mount Rainier and the Puget Sound.

The weather is predicted to be beautiful this year with sunrise at 6:42 a.m. The public is invited to arrive at sunrise and stay for the program led by five local community churches. The service begins at 7 a.m. and concludes by 8 a.m. Hot beverages and donuts will be served.

Haven of Rest Funeral Home is located at 8503 State Route 16 NW, Gig Harbor. For more information, call Martha Bryant at 253-851-9991.
