St. John's Get Together: Passover Seder Meal on March 2

The Passover Seder meal is a living testimony to God’s faithfulness to his people. Celebrated by Jewish people since they were freed from Egypt, this meal teaches those who eat it to look back at the past with gratitude, to accept the present with trust, and to anticipate the future with hope. It is from the bread & wine of the Seder meal that Jesus gives us the Lord’s Supper to celebrate his presence among us.

Pastors David & Justin invite you to enjoy this full-fledged 90 minute dinner at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, March 2, 2016, in St. John’s Fellowship Hall. The ceremonial meal will include samples of lamb, matzo, bitter herbs, & haroses, and the actual meal will include turkey, green beans, boiled barley, dates, figs, and orange slices.
