April 18 - Passover Seder

The Passover Seder retells the story of the Jewish people leaving Egypt 3,000 years ago: the first successful slave revolt recorded. It's a celebration of freedom—and it's a great opportunity for fellowship and connections.

Whether you've celebrated the Seder your whole life, or whether you've never been to one before, you are welcome! Join us for this festive and informal potluck meal on Friday April 18, 6-8 p.m. Traditional recipe suggestions and additional information is available when you purchase tickets.
Tickets are $2 each, and will be sold during Sunday coffee hour. You can also email Barbara Harrison at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
