You are always welcome. Embury is warm and friendly in its truest sense. But then again it is to be experienced, not promoted. In this age of super stores and super sizes, we are not embarrassed that we are small. In fact, we believe it is one of our strengths where you feel more like part of a caring family, not part of a "congregation." Most importantly, at Embury, it's all about growing disciples, not adding members. It's not about maintaining our facility but it's about loving our neighbors and loving God. (Mark 12:30-31)
You are always welcome!
Embury United Methodist Church will be hosting a Seder Meal reenacting Jesus’ Last Supper following in the footsteps of Jesus during his last days. This is a spiritual worship service with traditional Jewish Passover liturgy and meal/dinner culminating with Holy Communion. We will begin at 6:30pm and the length of the service and dinner will be a little over 2-hours. Dinner is potluck as participants are asked to bring food to share. Any meat dish, side dish and desserts are welcome. Matzo will be provided. In keeping with the Jewish tradition ( it will not be 100% Kosher even if we tried. However...), we ask that you keep in mind the following: No pork or pork meat products. Meat and dairy cannot be mixed in the same dish, such as casseroles. No yeast in the bread or cake. There are many websites on the internet with recipes for Seder meals like this one - Seder Recipes.
Please sign up and let us know how many are planning to attend and what you will bringing to help with the preparation. Don’t forget to invite friends!
