This will be a complete Seder Service with meal held at 6:30pm in the FLC. This is a time to remember Jesus’ last meal with his disciples. This time for the Jews is the remembrance of Moses leading the people out of bondage and God’s plan of salvation.
This is a big event and a lot of people are needed to make this happen. Volunteers are needed to help prepare the soup, matza balls, desserts, set up, decorating, take down, serving the meal, etc. There is also sign up for those who will be attending.
