We are entering into the most exciting of seasons and we have the awesome blessing to celebrate two powerful events. First, we celebrate Passover when we recognize Jesus as our perfect spotless Passover lamb who took our place in death and opened the way to salvation. This begins sunset on Friday, April 19th which is Good Friday and runs through April 27th. Then we will have a jubilant service celebrating the Resurrection of our King Jesus on Sunday on April 21st
Our Father loves us so much that He gave us His Son so we might be forgiven and restored back into the family of God! We give Him praise for our salvation, and through His Feasts in Leviticus 23, the Lord reveals the complete plan for the redemption of all creation and it begins with Passover.
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom,
and strength and honor and glory and blessing (Revelation 5:12)!
This year, there are two ways to enjoy a Passover/Resurrection Dinner:
- In-Home Celebration Dinners
Once again, we will be doing our Passover/Resurrection in-home celebration dinners. Passover has never been removed from the home for each family was to rehearse the story of God’s great deliverance for the Hebrews from Egypt… and most importantly, the blood of the lamb. This flows beautifully with the Resurrection.
If you would like to host a dinner in your home, please email email@example.com
. We will send you all necessary information to facilitate this powerful time in the Lord. Don’t be concerned…you will not have to cook the entire meal. We ask the hosts to only provide the main dish. Those who get assigned to attend your group will bring something to contribute. This can be a special time for just your family or a large event inviting others! Consider inviting friends and family who do not know Jesus. You will be richly blessed by celebrating the Lamb of God in Spirit and Truth!
If you would like to just attend a dinner, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This will be a very intimate, casual and special time to meet others in the Gateway family and recognize and remember what Jesus has done for each and every one of us.
- Or’Chaim Passover Celebration

We want to encourage you and your families to celebrate this season and rejoice in our Risen Lord!
Love You All,
