Community Outreach Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday, March 26
We are looking for individuals (or families) to partner with us this year for our Community Outreach Easter Egg Hunt. There are many ways to help! Our greatest need is treats for our goody bags. You can bring items like hard candy, fruit snacks, lunchbox-sized snacks, small toys, erasers, pens, etc. These items do NOT need to fit inside the eggs. You can drop these items in the box located in the foyer. Interested in volunteering to help with games or activities for the event? Contact Holly Burklund or Ashley Blank for more details.

Passover Seder Meal Reminder

Tuesday, March 15, 5 or 7 p.m., Fellowship Hall
The Passover Seder is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover and involves a retelling of the story of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. This is a symbolic representation of the typical Jewish meal with small samplings of food. It is not a full meal. Attendance is limited to those who have already signed up for the meal and paid for their tickets. We are expecting a full house. Please plan to attend the session that you signed up for so we can accommodate all who registered to attend.

Meet out at Maranatha at 6 p.m. on Friday the 11th; pick up at 8 a.m. on Saturday the 12th. Parent release form required.

Passover Seder Meal

Tuesday, March 15, 5 or 7 p.m., Fellowship Hall
You are invited to attend a Passover Seder meal! The Seder meal is the traditional Passover meal to remember the suffering and persecution of the Jewish people in Egypt and the miraculous way that God brought them out of slavery. This experience can help us prepare for Easter by deepening our understanding of Passover and the way that it set the stage for Jesus – the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.

Leading us in the Seder meal will be Avi Snyder, a veteran missionary and director of the European work of Jews for Jesus. Jews for Jesus is an agency that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world, but the founders of this organization are quick to point out that Jews for Jesus actually began about 2,000 years ago – Jesus’ first disciples were Jewish, and there have been some Jewish people who have believed in Him ever since. The cost of this meal is $3 per person or $12 per family, and you can come at either 5:00 or 7:00 p.m. In order to prepare for this meal, it is important that you register in advance. Sign up Sunday at the table in the foyer.
