Passover Seder, Wednesday, April 5th at 6pm

What does a roasted egg, chopped apples, horseradish, salt water, unleavened bread and a roasted egg have in common. They are all sacramental elements in a sacred meal that takes us back to our Jewish roots. In the Passover meal, we celebrate the freedom of God's people throughout the centuries and we as Christians can look back and see how these symbols also point to Christ the Messiah who came to bring the whole world the good news that they too have been chosen by God.
