This Week at Old South Haven Church

                     7:00pm    A Seder and Holy Communion
                                    The Messianic Passover Haggadah
        Haggadah means "the telling". Passover, the story of the Hebrews
        flight from the bondage of Egypt has been retold for thousands
        of years. It is the story of miraculous transitions- from slavery
        to freedom, from despair to hope, from darkness to light.
        One of the last earthly acts of Jesus was the celebration of the
        Passover with his disciples.. At that Seder he spoke to them of  
        his death. We are happy that Ilene Gelfer will be with us to
        offer the Passover prayers in Hebrew,
