We are offering a live-stream service for a Passover Meal on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 6:00pm MST.
Passover is an annual holiday remembering how God delivered His people from captivity under Pharaoh's control 1400 years before Jesus was born.
Each year following the mass exodus of Israelites fleeing Egypt, the Jews celebrated Pasover in a weeklong celebration.
"Seder" is a Hebrew word for "order". God is a God of order, not chaos.
When people would gather together for their seder meal, the meal was the kick-off of all the Passover festivities. Those eating the meal would follow a specific order by eating certain types of food each symbolizing a different part of God's love, compassion and deliverance.

Passover Packs will be available for pickup at the Canon Cafe between 7a - 2p on April 9. Passover Packs are available for $10. Passover packs feed between 2-6 people.
Keep in mind the seder meal is intended to be more symbolic than filing. Therefore, you might want to eat a normal dinner after your seder meal. I would suggest you eat your real dinner after the seder rather than before.
Find each item listed below, find the item or something similar and have enough for each person in your family to have a bite or two. Then tune in to the PHCC live stream at 6:00p on Thursday, April 9, 2020, where I will walk you through each course of the meal and explain it's meaning.
