Sugar Grove UMC offers Seder Meal

By on April 9, 2009

The Sensory Experience of the Seder Meal will be offered during Holy Week on Thursday, April 9, at 7 p.m. at Sugar Grove United Methodist Church, 176 Main St. in Sugar Grove.

This candlelight Passover observance is shared as a symbolic family meal to give insights to the ways Jesus and his disciples followed this Jewish custom.

This is also known as “The Last Supper.” Following scripture and tradition, the church will will use its ears and taste buds to remember and celebrate God’s acts of salvation for God’s people, including the significance of Jesus Christ in people’s lives.

No reservation is required for this free event.

The church will also host a Good Friday worship for area churches, including Kaneville United Methodist and Grace United Methodist of Maple Park, on Friday, April 10, at 7 p.m. The candlelight service, recalling the suffering and crucifixion of Christ, will feature live music—piano, cello, violin, oboe— singing, scripture readings, silent prayer, and projected images for the worshipers.
