Passover Seder held at Poolville United Methodist Church

POOLVILLE – This past Tuesday night the Poolville United Methodist Church (PUMC) in Poolville held a Passover Seder, which is traditionally viewed as a Jewish ritual dinner. Pastor Nancy Araujo led the seder to remind church members of the Exodus story, as well as to commemorate Jesus' sacrifice and later resurrection on Easter day.



According to Pastor Nancy, the last dinner Jesus had with his disciples was a Passover Seder. This meal is significant because the Passover Seder is conducted to symbolize God's decision to save the Israelites from slavery and hardship under Pharaoh’s rule in Egypt.

Pastor Nancy continued by explaining that after this salvation God required his people to sacrifice a lamb and hold Passover Seder in remembrance of his actions. Passover Seder connects to Easter because, “Christ was our lamb. He sacrificed his life for us instead of us having to sacrifice a lamb every year,” said Pastor Nancy.
