Passover Seder Experience

The night before his crucifixion, Jesus and his disciples shared a Passover meal. Every year of their lives, these faithful Jewish men and their Messiah observed Passover, gathering to break unleavened bread and share the cup and celebrate God’s miraculous rescue of his people from slavery in Egypt. Over the last 3,000 years, God’s people have continued to observe Passover in order to remember what He has done. Now we invite you to join the celebration at Southern Wesleyan University during our Homecoming Weekend to get a taste of this meaningful event in Jesus’ life!
