Appleton Baptist Church Easter Services

Spring is approaching fast, and along with that is Easter! Easter is on March 31 this year. Appleton Baptist Church will have their traditional sunrise service up on Appleton Ridge, at the corner of Town Hill and Appleton Ridge roads. The sunrise service will be at 6 a.m. Following the service will be a breakfast at the Appleton Village School at 6:30 a.m. I know it’s early, but it is a wonderful time of fellowship with the community. There is no charge for the breakfast. All are welcome to attend! There won’t be Sunday school at the church that morning, but the regular worship service will start as normal at 10:45 a.m. For more information you may call the church at 785-4921 or email appletonbaptist.sec@gmail.com.
