We will have the annual Seder Dinner on Palm Sunday, April 9th at 5:00pm. The ritual meal which commemorates the events of the Exodus is called the Seder. This Christian observance of this ritual meal celebrates not only our tradition of Christ's last supper but our own Jewish heritage which provided the context for Jesus' institution at the last supper. Recipes for traditional dishes will be available for those who wish to help with the meal.
8:00 pm April 13th - Noon April 14th (1 hour shifts)
Following the Maundy Thursday service on April 13th the congregation will be invited to move to the parish hall where an altar of repose will await the sacrament of Christ's presence. During the night, followers of Christ are invited to keep watch before the altar remembering how Jesus asked his disciples to stay with him in the Garden of Gethsemane. This watch will continue through the entire night until noon on Good Friday. We are putting together an hourly sign up for the hours of 8:00 pm on Thursday until Noon on Friday and we will have a security guard present. If you would like to sign up please email (email@example.com) or call me (254.773.1657) and let me know which hour you would like to cover. We can certainly have more than one person for each hour but want to be sure we have at least one.
