Celebrate Jesus’ last meal on earth as He took the Passover and changed it into the Lord’s Supper. We will be doing this on the date of the Jewish Passover 2016. This will be an time of learning, growth, fellowship and worship. Rev. Dr. Jerry Schmoyer has been doing this presentation every 5 years since 1985. He will dress in as a Jew in Jesus’ day and will explain and reproduce all that was said and done on that special night so many years ago. There will be models, visuals, videos, Power Point, a lot of good music, handouts and group participation. There will be a full meal as part of this event. Each couple or family will make their own matzah and bring grape juice as well. Everyone will bring an assigned dish to share. We will see what the disciples saw and do what the disciples did that night.
Daily devotions to help individuals or families prepare for this will be provided. This helps make the experience real. Children 6 and above, who can sit and benefit from this experience, are welcome. There will be a variety of activities and many visuals to keep their attention. A nursery may be provided.
Invite friends and relatives to take part in this as well. This living tribute to Jesus as the Lamb of God will be something you will always remember. You must register soon as seating is limited (registration form is attached).

I suggest each person or families coming to our Last Supper celebration use the following devotions each day. This can be done in addition to or in place of your current daily devotions. You can read either the “Suggested Passage” or the “Focus Verses” for the day. “For Further Study” is optional for those who want to go into more detail about the daily topic. All you need is a Bible and pencil. These are only for Monday – Friday, use the week-end to catch up if you get behind. Older children can do these on their own if the family doesn’t do them together, or before the family does them and then share their results.
There is a “Week-Long Study Project” suggestion you can use with your home schooling or for your own personal study. If you do these I would appreciate seeing the results of your study, and possibly copying them for my own use.
Always pray for insight and understanding before you start your devotions.
SUGGESTED BIBLE MEMORY VERSES TO USE from now until the Passover are listed below. Review them once or twice a day, or say them before or after each meal. Children and adults can quickly learn them. In future years whenever they hear these verses they will associate them with the Last Supper meal and all its teaching. (A copy to cut and use is in the back of these pages.)
Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. I Corinthians 5:7b
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29
ELEMENTARY AGE CHILDREN:
Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast — as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. I Corinthians 5:7
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. I Peter 1:18-19
All the ones above and/or Exodus 12:1-11
The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, “This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household. If any household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat. The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. Do not eat the meat raw or cooked in water, but roast it over the fire — head, legs and inner parts. Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till morning, you must burn it. This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover. Exodus 12:1-11
