The Lizard Butte Easter Sunrise Association consists of a group of believers from a variety of churches across the Treasure and Snake River valleys who have banded together to continue the long-standing tradition of an annual Sunrise Service on Lizard Butte. We're a non-denominational Association with no formal affiliation to any particular church or denomination, though some of the churches involved have been active since the beginning of the annual service in 1938.


The association was originally formed by various regional groups, churches, grange halls and others. They represented the communities or regions of Marsing, Riverside, Sunny Slope, Knowlton Heights, Central Cove, Deer Flat, Lakeview, and Southside Boulevard. Some of these regions exist today only in memory.

The present Association membership is comprised of sixteen volunteers whose places of residence range from Marsing and Huston to Caldwell, Nampa, Murphy, Star and Meridian. The number of churches and organizations they represent is equally diverse.

The Association members meet three to four times each year to evaluate, plan and carry out the details of the annual time of Easter morning worship.
