At odds over the role of a popular television ministry, supporters of the Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service have split in a struggle to control one of Southern California's oldest religious celebrations. Dissidents opposed to the involvement of televangelist Paul Crouch and his wife, Jan, have won approval from the Los Angeles Philharmonic Assn. to use the Hollywood Bowl this Easter, provided they can raise the money to produce the April 11 service.

The worldwide Trinity Broadcasting Network's abrupt withdrawal from next month's Easter pageant at the Hollywood Bowl means there will probably be no televised coverage of the annual sunrise service, event planners conceded Wednesday. There is not enough time now to arrange for even a local broadcast, said leaders of Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service Inc., which regained control over the pageant.

Despite having won a bitter dispute with the toss of a coin, the flamboyant Trinity Broadcast Network is abandoning its plans to produce and televise this year's Easter sunrise service at the Hollywood Bowl, an attorney said Tuesday. "They dropped it because of the public outcry," said Gerald Manpearl, an attorney representing Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service Inc., which says its predecessors initiated the annual service 80 years ago. "People were outraged," Manpearl said.

Organizers of the Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service, which has featured a rabbi and a broadly religious flavor in recent years, say they will reintroduce a more specifically Christian focus in the 71st annual service on March 31. Some church people quietly objected to the invitation of Reform Rabbi Leonard Beerman to give one of two sermons in the 1988 service during a period when the service occasionally involved ministers from the spiritually eclectic Religious Science churches.

Easter sunrise at the Hollywood Bowl survived its 73rd year Sunday, but the rift between rival groups vying for control of the service showed no sign of abating. "After all we've been through in taking the service back on behalf of the people of Hollywood, this one was something special," said publicist Norma Foster, the event's producer. But the woman who lost control of the service this year because of her controversial association with a popular television ministry saw it differently.

Nothing could deter organizers of one of the nation's best-known Easter sunrise services on Sunday. Not a last-minute shortage of lilies. Not a lack of live television coverage. Not even a half-empty Hollywood Bowl. In fact, event coordinators were downright elated that the event remained in their hands at all. "So many people were so enthusiastic because they almost lost the Easter service," said Norma Foster, president of the Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service Inc.

As the sun flickered over the Hollywood Hills Sunday morning, Farrah Cho stood just offstage at the Hollywood Bowl and explained the significance of Easter sunrise services. "Every day, you're really busy all the time, and then you wake up on Easter and you realize that God has risen," said the 11-year-old who rose at 3 a.m. and traveled from Norwalk to be a part of the children's Living Cross. "It's cool."
