SonRise Resurrection Pageant

SonRise is an interactive, put-you- there-at-the-scene trip through Christ's final days leading to His death and resurrection. The cast is made up of over 500 Southern Adventist University students and church members.
The Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church has offered this "walk-through" pageant since 1996. Held on the Saturday of Easter weekend, it begins in the Collegedale Church sanctuary and continues across the campus of Southern Adventist University. Casual dress and comfortable shoes are encouraged for the leisurely, less-than-a-mile walk. Be prepared for a warm day and bring water to keep yourself hydrated.
A SonRise DVD of 2013 and 2014 are available for purchase through the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church for $10 each (add $2 if we have to mail it). DVD proceeds will go to SonRise.
The video footage begins in the Sanctuary and continues through the Resurrection.
To request a DVD be mailed to you, send a $12/DVD check payable to:
PO Box 3002
Collegedale, TN 37315
Since we do not know what the demand for the DVD will be, we will be duplicating small quantities at a time. To pick up a DVD in person contact the Church office at (423) 396-2134 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure we will have one ready when you come to pick it up.
Due to copyright issues, the original songs used in the Sanctuary, Crucifixion, and the Resurrection have been changed, but the blessing you receive will still be the same.
