This year during Holy Week, Monte Vista Chapel will be hosting an evening of culinary exploration, ancient tradition and biblical history on Tuesday, March 27 in the Gym. The evening will begin with a traditional Passover dinner as one might experience in a Jewish home during the festival and will be followed by an interactive Seder presentation.
A visiting missionary from "Jews for Jesus" will usher us through the traditional seder, showing us the links between the Ancient festival of Redemption and Christ as the Lamb of God. Using scripture as well as visual items to walk through the Jewish Passover seder, the missionary will weave the story of the Exodus together with the life, death and resurrection of Christ, bringing the words Christ spoke in the Upper Room to life as each Hebraic item is carefully explained.
Get your tickets early, there is limited space available. There will be childcare available at no additional charge, however children must be pre-registered with paid adult tickets.
At the conclusion of "Christ in the Passover" we will be collecting a free-will love offering to help support the ongoing "Jews for Jesus" mission.
The dinner menu for the evening:
- Roasted leg of lamb with honey and mint sauce
- Bitter herb smashed potatoes
- Pan roasted and glazed carrots
Dessert: Flourless Chocolate Cake
