You're Invited to Passover!
4:30pm, April 15, at Lighthouse Baptist Church
All teens, young adults, and their immediate family members can participate. Please bring a dish to share that will feed at least 12-15 people. We also need a few generous people to bring a dessert 🙂 Contact Pastor Joshua if you plan to attend.
About the Seder
The Jewish Passover (Seder) is a celebration consisting of singing, Scripture reading, a game, and several other symbolic elements related to Jewish history. Therefore, it can last as long as three hours. The actual supper will not occur until over halfway through the Seder, so please eat a snack prior to your arrival.
Kosher Food Details
As you decide what food to bring and share, please make sure your dish is kosher. Kosher meats include beef, chicken, turkey, and fish with scales. Dairy products are kosher but traditionally cannot be eaten in the same meal with meat, so we will try to avoid dairy altogether. Finally, grains such as corn, beans, lentils, oats, and wheat are not allowed.
Refer to the list below of kosher foods. If you would rather purchase something instead of preparing something yourself, please make sure it is labeled as being kosher.
If in doubt, send us a message with what you would like to bring, and we’ll tell you if it is allowed 🙂
