Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday

 

We will be observing Maundy Thursday this year with a traditional Seder Service (complimentary Passover Meal) on Thursday, April 2nd.  Passover is the Jewish Holiday when the Jewish people recount their ancestors’ descent into Egypt and recall their suffering and persecution.

 

Many of you will remember our Passover Suppers from the past.  This service will be similar; reverent and symbolic of the traditions that the Jewish people have observed for thousands of years.

 

A nursery will be provided for children who may be uncomfortable in such a formal setting.  There will be no age limit for this nursery.  Pizza will be brought in for the children at no cost to the parents.

 

To help us prepare, we ask that you sign up by March 28th.  Signup sheets will be placed in various spots throughout the church.  We hope you will join us for this special service on Thursday, April 2nd at 5:45 PM.
