Holy Week is full of celebration and is only days away! Here is a reminder of the special events coming up:
April 2 (Sunday) is “Bring a Friend Day.” This is an excellent opportunity to introduce your friends, neighbors, and family to the Northwest Church community. And since it’s just before Easter, this offers visitors a chance to experience NWC on a typical Sunday before launching into the events of the season.
We will host a Passover Seder on April 7 (Good Friday). This ritual feast reminds us of the Israelites' descent into slavery in Egypt, their suffering under Pharaoh’s rule, and God’s miraculous redemption of the Jewish people. At the last meal Jesus shared with his disciples, he took elements of the Passover meal and made them symbols of his death.
As we participate in this traditional meal, Rabbi Matt Rosenberg (Restoration Messianic Synagogue) will lead us in reflection on all that Yeshua (Jesus) accomplished when he sacrificed himself on our behalf, as seen through the lens of the Passover Seder. Rabbi Matt is sure to make this evening fun, interactive and inspirational. You won’t want to miss it!
On April 9 (Easter Sunday), we will gather to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We encourage you, again, to invite your friends, neighbors, and family to join us.
Invitations for you to take will be available this Sunday.
