“things ready for Passover”

The Passover we celebrate is a Christian one. The form is Jewish, but the content proclaims Jesus as the fulfillment of the Passover. The Passover is not a requirement for us, but an opportunity to learn.  It teaches us how the first Passover in Egypt is a picture of the great Passover which happened on Good Friday and Easter. Christ IS our Passover Lamb.

Our Seder begins promptly at 4:00 pm. It concludes between 7:00-7:30 pm. It is to your benefit to arrive with plenty of time to set up your family’s place settings and prepare for the worship that precedes the meal itself. The downstairs door is open at 3:00. It takes at least 20 minutes to set up your dishes and feel organized.

Because this is an event that has specific items used in specific amounts,
we need to work with specific numbers.
We ask that you let us know in advance that you are coming.

Pastor will assign an “Avoht” (Leader) for each table and selected children are asked to read parts from the Seder booklet. Allow for some extra preparation time if you agree to help with these roles.

The ceremonial food is provided. Each family is asked to bring a family-sized serving of a dish to be shared during the meal. Main dishes, sides, and desserts are all needed. The lamb is provided, but chicken and other main dishes are welcome. See Beth Dietz or call (610) 937-1997 (Church) for suggestions. Bring your dish ready to serve for the Seder. If your dish requires cooking, heating or ANY preparation at church, bring your own equipment to do so.

To make clean-up easy for everyone, please bring your own tableware. You will need the following items for each one of your family members: Seder place setting image is here.
