2020 Community Seder | Canceled due to COVID-19
** We are so sad to announce that due to the gathering restrictions placed as a result of the spread of COVID-19, we have canceled our 2020 Passover Seder.
To help enable you to have a seder at home this year, you can purchase copies of the haggadah that we use (at cost).
Please join our mailing list to be notified of next year’s seder! **
Have you ever wondered why Jesus spent his last moments before his crucifixion celebrating Passover with his disciples? Have you ever thought about the significance of the Last Supper and why Jesus had earnestly desired to eat it with his disciples? We welcome you to learn these things and more and take part in the Passover with us!
During this event, we will partake in the Passover meal together as the meaning and significance of this ancient holiday come alive. Connect with the scriptures in a real, experiential way. Share in the very meal Yeshua (Jesus) & his disciples partook of just prior to His crucifixion as the scriptures come alive to you like never before!
- Date: CANCELED
- Time: 6:30pm – 9:30pm
- Location: Grace Foursquare Church, 2240 E. Franklin Rd, Meridian.
- Cost: $15/adult, $8/child
What to Expect
Passover Seders typically last into the night – often for 4-5 hours. While we retain most of the traditional elements, we have shortened our haggadah (written program of order) so that ours takes around 3 hours, including dinner.
You can expect to learn a few Hebrew blessings, but we also repeat all of these blessings in English so that you won’t feel disconnected from the meanings of the blessings. Alcohol is not served – blessings will be done with grape juice.
The Seder will go for a couple of hours, then we enjoy dinner and fellowship together before wrapping up the seder with the last of the elements. We will finish between 9-9:30pm.
Our Passover Seder is family friendly, and we will have coloring pages available for kids as well as a few snacks on the tables. We’ve found that it helps children to be prepared by their parents ahead of time that dinner is after a “service” – otherwise the wait can feel rather long for little bodies. Childcare is not provided.
The seder includes a chicken dinner that we will enjoy together.
Scholarships may be available for those in need – we don’t want anyone to not be able to attend due to financial hardship. Please contact us via the form in the menu above for more information.
