We will be celebrating Passover and the institution of the Lord’s Supper this year with a formal Seder service.

The Passion Week Post

“For”, Seder, and the Criminal’s Father

Easter is April 21st, 2019.  As always, I want to encourage you to make much of this celebration of Christ’s life, his sacrificial death and his glorious resurrection. This is the heart of our faith!

We will have great worship on Palm Sunday, a Seder service on Friday, a Sunrise Service at Countryside Park, and then a buffet breakfast and Easter worship at the church.

We need lots of help pulling together the Seder.  Details below, and contact Iva to volunteer

(1) The theme on Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday is the word “For.”

I’ve never done a series on one Greek word before, especially a “little” one. But on Palm Sunday and at the main service on Easter Sunday I’ll be focusing on the little word “huper,” which is usually translated “for” but means something closer to “on behalf of.” We’ll be looking at several of the thirty or so verses where this little work is used in the context of our salvation. Here’s one: “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Here’s the plan for Palm Sunday:
Title: For Us
Main Text: John 11:45-53
Additional “for” texts: 1 John 3:16, Ephesians 5:1-2, John 6:51, John 10:11,15
Worship: The Triumphal Entry
Key Sentence: Jesus laid down his life for us
Outline
I. Huper Humon . . .
II. He Lays Down His Life For . . .
III.  One Man to Die For . . .
IV. Hosanna . . .

(2) Passover Seder on Friday, April 19th at 7:00 pm

We will be celebrating Passover and the institution of the Lord’s Supper this year with a formal Seder service.  We will look at the meaning and symbolism in Passover, the central holiday of the Jewish year, and seeing how Jesus transformed those symbols into a celebration and re-experiencing of his own sacrificial death.

We need a lot of help to pull this off, as each table needs both individual settings and platters for the ceremonial foods (we will not be having a meal, but will share all the symbolic foods and drinks.

Here is a PDF of the signup sheet, with the remaining list of things you can volunteer to do or bring. Volunteers for Seder

Please call Iva at the church office (281-482-0577) or email her (ivaf@trinityfellowship.net) to volunteer, or use the sign up sheet that will be available on Sunday mornings.  We will try to remove things from this sheet as people volunteer.
