Goodhope General Baptist Church was the scene of a beautiful sunrise service Easter morning at 6:30. Sue Brown played her keyboard. Glen Dale Robertson, Bob and Mary Bumgardner, Danny Davis and Brother Bob Huskey brought the music. It was very good. Then Brother Bob brought the sermon. It was a very moving service. We all had breakfast inside. Sunday school and Easter egg hunt for the children and morning service started about 10:30 with our pastor David Welsh with a powerful Easter message. There wasn’t any evening service.
