Celebrate the Seder with us on the Thursday before Easter, April 2 at 6:00pm followed by potluck.
The Passover Seder is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover. It is based on the Biblical verse commanding Jews to retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt: "And you shall tell it to your son on that day, saying, 'Because of this God did for me when He took me out of Egypt.'" (Exodus 13:8)
Seder customs include drinking of four cups of wine, eating matza and partaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate. The Seder is performed in much the same way by Jews all over the world.
Please join us here at Spirit of Joy on in remembrance of Christ at His last Passover Seder... shortly before his arrest, trial, scourging, crucifixion and death on what is today called "Good Friday."
Following the Passover Seder we'll share a potluck meal. Sign up on the kiosk.

“He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.”
