Calling all ladies! Join our Refresh Women's Ministry for a Seder Passover meal. The Seder, a festive holiday meal, actually means "order". It is called this because the meal is done in a certain order that takes us from slavery to freedom. We will partake in the foods on the Seder plate that recount the highlights of the Exodus, and participate in songs, prayers, questions. We will also provide a buffet dinner alongside the Seder plate. Childcare is available with registration. Register for this event here!
