Seder Supper, April 4th
Christ the King celebrated our first Seder Supper last week as part of our community participating in Holy Week. This was largely inspired by our Worship Renewal Grant from Calvin Institute of Christian Worship where we are exploring what it means grow in our observance of the Lord’s Supper this year. The Seder Supper is an exploration of the passover meal, and gives people an experiential look into the last supper that jesus had with his disciples. Along with recounting the passover story we also sang through the Great Hallel (Psalms 113-117) that most scholars attribute as the ‘hymn’ that Jesus sang with this disciples (Matt 26:30)

Through a First Friday event hosted at a local art gallery they invited the community to consider the centrality of bread to our lives through performance and visual art related to the beauty, process and earthiness of water, flower, yeast, and heat.
