PALMER TWP., Pa. -

Bethel Memorial Baptist Church, located at Freemansburg Ave. and Mine Lane, Palmer, will once again get to celebrate Easter Sunday at Fairview Park.

The church has received unanimous approval from the township Board of Supervisors, during its Monday night meeting, for use of the park for a sunrise service at 7 a.m. on March 31, in celebration of the Easter holiday.

Bethel Memorial coordinates with other churches in the area for the community service. The board also gave their approval for the church to hang signage on the legion field fence before the event, to draw a crowd for the event. The township will also move benches, open the restroom facilities and allow access to electrical outlets for the service.
