Seder is the Jewish celebration that Jesus and His disciples were celebrating at what we often call the Last Supper. The traditional Seder itself is not a meal, but more of a tasting of different foods which represent details of the Passover story found in Exodus. This meal is rich with symbolism of Jesus’ sacrifice for us and celebrating it provides an opportunity to remember together.
We are inviting you to host a Seder Celebration for a group of Trinity family members who live near you or with whom you already have relationships. Gathering around the table for food and conversation provides opportunity for fellowship, shared learning and preparing our hearts for Easter.
WHO: Our hope is to have Seder Celebrations all over the Lansing area! You will be able to choose whether your celebration is for adults only or family-friendly and the number of guests that you can accommodate.
WHAT: You have three celebration options:
1. Traditional Seder + meal
2. Traditional Seder only
3. Ice Cream Seder (Ice Cream? Yup! The same symbolism is involved, but the end result is an ice cream sundae.)
We’ll supply instruction kits for the three options that include a materials list and script. You may decide to ask someone to partner with you or to have your guests contribute food or you can do it all. It’s up to you!
WHEN: The Seder Celebrations will take place during the week before Easter. The traditional day would be Thursday, April 6, but you are welcome to host any day that week that works best for you.
HOW: If you would like to host a Seder Celebration, complete the Hosting form below. Kits will be available for pickup starting on Sunday, March 12.
Additional information and registration for attending a Seder Celebration in a neighborhood near you will be available later in March.
