passover seder

The Passover was given to the people of God to be a permanent reminder of His great deliverance for His people. It started with the great Exodus of the Jews from Egyptian slavery and continues with the deliverance we find from our sins through the finished work of Jesus Christ. God’s Word declares that the Passover was to be celebrated by God’s people for all time.

Please watch the video below for a snapshot of what to expect!

Our Seder will be held at 6pm, Friday, April 26, 2024.  Please reserve your seating beginning March 10th using our EVENTS tab. We will begin a waitlist when full. 

what is seder?

  • All of the elements which we will use are part of the traditional Jewish Feast.
  • Tables will be set in small groups to simulate a gathering of two or three families in a home.
  • You will be asked to eat parsley dipped in salt water to represent that the Passover took place in the spring when vegetation was green.  The salt water depicts the tears of bondage God's people had during their years of slavery in Egypt.  You will also be invited to eat the bitter herbs, which is horseradish, to identify more fully with the hardship of bondage.  It is not meant to be pleasant.  The charoset is a sweet apple and walnut mixture which represents that even in the midst of hardship, the sweet presence of God is with us.  

Please remember that leaven is not permitted at a Seder dinner, so no bread or any bread products will be served at the meal.



The Haggadah is the book that is used during the Seder on Passover.

The word Haggadah means “telling,” as its primary purpose is to facilitate the retelling of the story of the Exodus from Egypt. It also guides participants through the ritual-rich Seder meal, indicating when and how each rite is performed.

Below are electronic copies of the Haggadah that we use here at GBC.
