Seder with Holy Eucharist 
and Dinner


Saturday, April 4, 2020

5:00 p.m.

Church of the Messiah

816 Kempsville Road | Chesapeake

The Passover Seder celebrates God setting Israel free from Egyptian bondage, delivering His people from slavery to freedom. Believers in Y'shua the Messiah participate in Passover because through Him, our lives have passed over from death to life. We have been redeemed by the Passover Lamb, through the Perfect Atonement through His Blood.


Each food on the Seder plate symbolizes a part of this redeeming act of God.  Each person has a little taste of each food, coming together to participate in what God has done for His people. The Seder gives us the historical Jesus, putting into perspective what He did for us.


We participate in the life of Y'shua and celebrate this through the Cup of Redemption, which is a part of the Passover Seder. We become one with Jesus through receiving His Body and Blood, remembering He celebrated this dinner with his disciples the night before He was handed over to suffering and death.


Come join this celebration on Saturday, April 4, at 5:00 p.m.   Please sign up by Sunday, March 29, so we can plan our seating and supply needs. There are sign-up sheets for both attendance and for helpers and donations.


We ask that each family bring the following:

  • Last name A-L:  A meat dish that will feed 8 people.  

  • Last name M-Z:  A dessert that will feed 8 people.

  • Vegetable dish or salad that will feed 8 people
    (if you're coming solo, just bring double what you would eat yourself)

  • A bottle of juice for your family, such as grape or cranberry. 

  • The Seder ceremony takes place before dinner, so please provide
    a snack beforehand for young children, so they will not become
    too hungry.
