Rolling Hills church to host 9/11 tribute

Rolling Hills Christian Church invites the public to a 9/11 memorial on the 10th anniversary of the terrorists’ attacks.

The church at 800 White Rock Road in El Dorado Hills will host two, one-hour services on Sept. 11 at 9:30 and 11 a.m.

“I think (9/11) had very big spiritual implications,” said Pastor Jeff Bigelow. “On the Sunday after 9/11 churches were packed; attendance was through the roof.”

In the midst of tragedy people gathered around God, explained Pastor Jake Larson. “Let’s not forget what brought us together that day.”

“You saw evil and you saw heroism,” Bigelow added.

The church’s program will feature musical tributes, remembrance videos and messages reflecting on the changes that 9/11 had on Americans. Members of the El Dorado Hills Fire Department are scheduled to attend.

“It’s going to be an extraordinary day,” Bigelow said. “9/11 in many ways, as tragic as it was, gave us great hope for what could be.”

Because of the large expected turnout, it’s recommended that guests arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the services. Traffic will be controlled around the event.

For more information call (916) 939-3527.
