2023 Family Seder Meal
Wednesday – April 5th | 6:00pm-9:00pm
The Seder meal was celebrated during Passover by Jews to remember the Exodus and how God led them into the Promised Land.

Christians have celebrated this meal to remember how Jesus served as our Paschal lamb, the perfect sacrifice, given to rescue us from captivity and deliver us into the freedom of life with God for eternity. Please join us to share in this rich and storied meal as we remember and once again tell the story of God’s faithfulness. This is a family friendly event – young families are also encouraged to attend.
