Come join us for our Maundy Thursday/Passover Seder Service, “Christ in
the Passover”, by Jews for Jesus, on Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary. One of the most significant Jewish holidays, Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, recalls and rejoices over the Israelites' redemption from slavery in Egypt. The symbolic elements of the feast cause us not only to look back and remember what God did for our people in the past; they also foreshadow a greater redemption through Jesus, the Passover Lamb. Jewish people around the world have celebrated Passover for thousands of years.
“Christ in the Passover” shows the link between the ancient Festival of Redemption and the Christian belief in Christ as the Lamb of God. This memorable and sermonic demonstration is visual, so the congregation will actually see a table set with traditional Passover items. The presenter uses Scripture as well as the visual items to walk through a Jewish Passover Seder, weaving the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ. The words Jesus spoke in the upper room come alive as each Hebraic item is carefully explained. The service will end this powerful presentation by celebrating communion. Special music will be provided by Stephen Berg, Bob Barnes and Patrice Meschke.
And remember to attend "Requiem", on Friday, April 3rd at
7:00 PM. The BUMC Choirs and
Orchestra will be presenting this inspiring work, by Gabriel Faure. A free will offering will be taken.
