The day's first light tinted the dark sky and chased away the full moon Sunday as worshipers picked their way across the hillside at Beachmont Christian Camp in Kingsville. Frost-covered grass crunched underfoot as families and couples bundled in ski jackets and blankets arrived, some clutching cups of coffee. Most held a copy of the Easter sunrise service program. "Over the years, it's snowed, it's rained and it's been a little colder than this, but they keep coming," said Paul Twining, the director of Beachmont Christian Ministries.

Sunrise Easter worship service started extra early yesterday because of the change to daylight-saving time.Although worshipers would lose an hour of sleep and have to face an unseasonably cold morning, the Rev. Errol Smith knew they would come. And they did.Within an hour after he turned on the lights in the towering steeple of Lovely Lane United Methodist Church in Charles Village, about four dozen people had arrived. And there didn't appear to be a sleepy eye in the house.Churches across Maryland welcomed worshipers at dawn yesterday for services big and small.

St. Peter's Lutheran Church celebrates the resurrection of Jesus in a place most people associate with death. Congregants planned to gather before dawn Easter morning inside the darkened sanctuary of the Fullerton church before walking with candles to the church's cemetery for a service led by the Rev. Mark Crispell. His makeshift altar: a tombstone. Included in the service are hymns and Scripture readings, as the sun rises to illuminate the faithful - both the living and the dead. For churches like St. Peter's, an Easter morning gathering in or near burial grounds emphasizes their belief in the resurrection of Jesus and the salvation it represents.

Johnny Ray Youngblood, the pastor of St. Paul, who organized the tribute, which is held every year.

GEORGE WASHINGTON paid a visit to Freedom Elementary School last week and awed pupils and teachers alike. Professor John C. Swartz of Ohio spent several hours educating fifth-graders on our first president's life with anecdotes and little-known facts. Resplendent in uniform, riding boots, tricorn hat and white powdered wig, Swartz seemed to be Washington. Swartz matches Washington in height and even wears the same boot size. "I thought he was the real George Washington because his face looked exactly like him, and he even had a wig. I asked him if he dug himself out of the grave," said first-grader Haley Morton.
