Holy Thursday

April 1, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Holy Thursday An Interactive Seder Dinner

What does “Maundy Thursday” or “Holy Thursday” mean to you? For many of us, we’ve heard these terms. Yet, we don’t understand why Jesus and his disciples were gathered for the last supper. What is the Passover? How does all this connect to our understanding of Holy Week and Jesus’ final days of ministry? This year, we have an opportunity to experience Holy Thursday at home in a more immersive way and we will finally begin to connect all the pieces.

 

Explore the Last Supper at 6:30 p.m.

Join an interactive experience for young and old alike. Rev. Tom Berlin and Cantor Susan Caro of the Northern Virginia Hebrew Congregation will guide us through an immersive dinner and virtual gathering. Discover the beauty and meaning of the Passover meal Jesus shared with his disciples on Holy Thursday. This is a family-friendly event.

FAQs
  1. What if I don’t have time to buy the ingredients and prepare?
    • Come anyway!
  2. I’m single, can I still join?
    • Sure! This is a shared experience with our entire church family.
  3. Will we be eating during the interactive seder?
    • We will walk through the elements of the seder plate together, but the main dining part should happen before or after. Traditionally, the meal would come after the sharing of the Exodus story and Seder plate, but for those with young children, feel free to eat before 6:30 p.m.
  4. Does this take the place of our typical communion service?
    • No, we will have our regular communion service (see below). For those that wish to watch together, we will share the video in Zoom.

 

Communion Service at 7:30 p.m.

Join us in a virtual worship service that will include scripture, original music written by our Full Circle Band, prayer and communion. This service is available via our website and Facebook page, with or without an account.
