LENT: HS Youth Hosted Seder Meal

I posted before on how to have a Christian Seder meal and provided links for a script etc. and then today I had an amazing idea that would be a great experience for youth and adults. Why not turn this tradition into an educational experience for the youth by having them host the meal for the congregation for a suggested free will offering?

They could:
  • Have a sign-up sheet to decide if one or many meals are needed.
  • Learn about the history of the event.
  • Find an appropriate leader of the ceremony.
  • Provide appropriate music.
  • Have Old Testament and Seder trivia on the table for while people wait.
A Seder meal is a great experience. It connects us with our roots and reminds us of our connection with the people of the Old Testament. I know a lot of youth groups would rather serve Easter breakfast but what a truly meaningful learning and leadership experience this would be!
