Passover Holy Days:
There are two "high sabbaths" connected to Passover. This year they are from Sundown March 30 to Sundown March 31 & from Sundown April 5 to Sundown April 6.
We are commanded to have a holy convocation on the high sabbaths, so we'll be having get-togethers either at church or at someone's house. This page will be updated with more details soon.
What is Passover?
One of the most important annual events on the Hebrew Calendar is the Passover meal and the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread. This powerful biblical holiday commemorates the deliverance of Israel from their slavery in ancient Egypt. God called Moses to go to Pharaoh and order him to let the Israelites go free. Pharaoh refused, so God sent plagues upon the land of Egypt. Despite each of these plagues, Pharaoh still refused, so God sent the tenth and final plague—the death of every firstborn in Egypt. During this plague, God provided the Passover lamb as a means of safety for His people. God passed over the homes of those who had the blood of the lamb on their doorposts (Exodus 12:13).
For followers of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), Passover commemorates not only the miraculous events described in the book of Exodus, but also our spiritual deliverance from the slavery of sin. The shed blood of the lamb represents the blood of the Messiah. Those who have His blood on the doorposts of their hearts are spared from the second death.
God commanded His people to keep Passover and Unleavened Bread throughout their generations as a statute forever (Exodus 12:14). Why? Because God so loves the world that He gave His only son (John 3:16). He wants the world to hear the message of the Gospel so that they, too, can be passed over and delivered from their sins.
Join us as we celebrate this amazing Biblical festival! You will be amazed at the depth of God’s Word as you learn how every detail of this ancient Festival points us to our Messiah.
