RELIGION: Seder meal reservations due; Holy Week services set

Seder meal reservations due

First United Methodist Church will have a Seder meal 6-8 p.m. Thursday.

This is a Passover meal where the story of the Exodus is shared in a fun way so children and those less familiar can learn it. It is like dinner theatre, including a full meal of lamb, chicken, potatoes, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, roasted eggs, fruit salad, matzah bread, grape juice, bitter herbs and greens.

Reservations must be made by calling the First United Methodist Church office at 472-4303 or by signing up during worship Sunday at the church.

A freewill offering will be collected for the meal.
