PASSOVER MEAL

You can choose to add a re-creation of Jesus' Last Passover to your seminar.  It was at this last Passover meal that Jesus started the tradition we continue today as the Lord's Supper or Communion.  Learn more about this foundation stone of our faith by experiencing it yourself!  This authentic, several-course meal is based on Jewish traditions, some of which date back to the time of Moses.  Learn how Jesus built on this ancient foundation to bring across a message as fresh today as it was when he delivered it.  The meal can be as elaborate as you'd like, from a simple meal for seminar participants to a gala event open to the community, complete with costumed actors and a full music team.  This is an experience you don't want to miss! Learn more about the Passover Meal by looking at the Passover booklet and instructions on our Booklets Page, or go directly to the Passover Meal Preparation Instructions pdf file.
