Maundy Thursday Seder Meal @ St. John's UMC | Texas City | Texas | United States

Join us on Maundy Thursday, March 29 for a re-creation of the traditional Passover Seder meal.  March 25 is the STRICT RSVP Deadline. Thank you! Call 409-655-5348 to RSVP

The Passover meal is one of the interesting places that Judaism and Christianity intersect – intersections that are, at once, rich, complicated, winsome, and sometimes fraught. Jews – even Jews who observe very few other religious rituals – celebrate a Passover seder each year, a meal that commemorates the events of the original Exodus from Egypt.

Celebrating a seder is more than gathering supplies – matzah, bitter herbs, charoset, a roasted bone, a hard-boiled or roasted egg, parsley, saltwater and wine or grape juice – and reciting the Passover story.  It is a spiritual experience that can enrich one’s faith.

During this meal you will see how Jewish people celebrate Passover today, how the symbolic foods of Passover picture God’s redemption, and how Jesus is beautifully foreshadowed in the Passover celebration and story. Children ages five to 105 will find this meal and service fascinating and fun!
