For the first time ever, I attended the Easter Sunday Sunrise Service sponsored by Capital Church in McLean VA today at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. In 2014, I had attended a service at Arlington Cemetery and filmed it. But this service lasting about 70 minutes, was “contemporary” in style.
Here is a list of clips.

2 The hymn “He’s Alive” reminded me of a Sunday night service in August 1979 at the old MCC Dallas (long before the Cathedral of Hope got built in Dallas) where a young man sung this with his guitar and a woman, paralyzed, got up and walked. I actually saw this.
3 “Praise the Lord”
At the end, there was an evangelical appeal to people to raise their hands as a sign of personal commitment to Christ, in public. This is more common at evangelical services.
