It is almost certainly the most important day in the liturgical calendar.  Easter marks the resurrection of Jesus after the crucifixion, an event on which Christians base their hope for salvation.

The oldest of Lincolnton's Easter Sunrise Services wsas held at St. Luke's Episcopal Church on N. Cedar Street, where worshippers gathered to hear a short sermon from Rev. Steve Hines and to observe eucharist.  

The Sunrise Service at St. Luke's is at least 150 years old, and has been observed continuously for over a hundred years longer than such an event at any other Lincolnton church.  

Following the service, parishioners and guests gathered at the church's Parish House for breakfast and fellowship.
