Wednesday Night Gatherings,
The Jewish Student Organization (Hillel) has hosted a Seder for us for decades. The actual start of Passover is this Friday, but we will host a Seder tonight. This is the meal Jesus shared with his disciples the night before his arrest. It was his last supper with them.
The meal is intertwined with the liturgy. We will begin at 6:00 and conclude around 7:30. This is a meal difficult to share only in part. If you want to come by simply for food, come at 7:30 and hope for leftovers. We will be having baked chicken and vegetables.
Menu this evening: Baked chicken and vegetables.
Next week's Program: Farewell Eucharist and Farewell (Followed by Easter Egg Hunt)
Set-up: Sze Wing Yu, Zach Lindler
Clean-up: Michael Cook (more help needed)
