Holy Week at Trenton United Methodist Church

Tuesday, April 12, at 7:00 PM, the Trenton United Methodist Church will host a representative of Jews for Jesus for a Holy Week presentation titled, “Christ in the Passover.”  Passover is the Jewish celebration of the end of slavery in Egypt and the beginning of the exodus journey to return to the Promised Land.  Israel’s redemption from slavery through the blood of the Passover lamb is not only one of the central stories of the Hebrew Scriptures, it also paints a powerful portrait of the Messiah who was to come.  “Christ in the Passover” will introduce the elements of the Passover tradition, their historic Jewish symbolism, and their spiritual significance for all people today.

Jews for Jesus is an international nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, California.  Its staff and volunteers are followers of Jesus who believe that Jesus is the Messiah of prophecy.

After two pandemic delays, the congregation is pleased to welcome all interested persons to this ecumenical and interfaith presentation.  Immediately following there will be time for questions and conversation, and afterward a sharing in the Lord’s Supper available for all.

The building is fully accessible with plenty of parking.  A free-will offering will be accepted to defray the travel expenses of the presenter.  All interested persons are welcome to attend.
