The Christian Seder is based on the Passover, one of the most ancient and important festivals of the Jewish people. The Seder tells the story of Israel’s release from bondage in Egypt and reminds us of God’s continual saving help throughout history. Also, Jesus’ Last Supper with his friends happened during the Passover season, so by sharing in a meal like theirs, we can understand more about our celebration of Communion.
Seder means “order” and during this meal, we’ll eat each food in sequence and we’ll accompany our eating with storytelling and prayer. Don’t worry, though, you’ll also get to relax as you enjoy a delicious Mediterranean meal!
This year we’ll be having a Seder meal On Thursday, April 13, at 5:30pm, followed by the Maundy Thursday Eucharist and Foot Washing service at 7.
To defray the cost of the lamb, wine, and other ingredients for the meal, there will be a charge of $20 per person ($7 for children under 12).
