Here at Peace Lutheran Church we are an imperfect family of Christians being healed
and knitted together by the perfect and unconditional love of God in Christ Jesus,
our Lord. Our worship is a response to all that God is and does for us, as he reveals
himself to us and shares himself with us in his Holy Word, and through the sacraments
of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. If you are visiting with us we want you to know
and experience his love, and our love, for you.

Jesus' Last Supper was actually a Jewish Passover. Alan Bond of Jews for Jesus will re-create
the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus' death and resurrection
in a presentation called "Christ in the Passover" at Peace Lutheran Church on Sunday,April
9th at 8:00 AM & 10:45 AM.
Alan Bond will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual
significance. He will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover
in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between
the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.
Jews for Jesus has presented “Christ in the Passover” at over 38,000 churches. It
has been enthusiastically received by Christians who appreciate learning more about
the Jewish backgrounds of their faith. Moishe Rosen, who founded Jews for Jesus
in 1973, has also co-written the book, Christ in the Passover, with his wife, Ceil.
This seminal work includes a look at Passover in ancient times and how it is practiced
today. It will be available after the presentation. Also, available will be a DVD
of the Christ in the Passover presentation with David Brickner, the executive director
of Jews for Jesus, officiating.
Brickner, a fifth-generation Jewish believer in Jesus, succeeded Rosen as Executive
Director in 1996. Brickner has kept Jews for Jesus on the cutting edge as the ministry
has expanded and established branches in eleven countries, including the United States,
Brazil, Israel, Russia, France, and South Africa. "We exist to make the Messiahship of Jesus
an unavoidable issue to our Jewish people worldwide," Brickner states. "There are
still a few that haven't heard of us!"
Alan Bond will be happy to answer questions after the presentation. Call (253) 631-3454 or
