Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery is located south and across the street from the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Anchorage, Alaska. The street address is 535 E 9th Ave. At this location the Easter Sunrise service is scheduled for Sunday, April 16, 2017, at 6:10 AM. According to the weather service sunrise is at 6:15 AM. This is a very traditional Moravian service to worship Jesus by gathering together on Easter morning. It is also a time to remember those that have passed on during the last 12 months.
Note: Many of our Moravian people are buried at Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery. One of the notable Moravians buried there is Dr. Joseph H. Romig, the Dog Team doctor (1872-1951). He is buried in Tract 9, Row 8, Lot 17. He was a pioneer medical missionary arriving in Bethel, Alaska in 1894 as a Moravian Missionary.
