Beth-El is partnering with Reestablish Richmond to host a Refugee Seder on the 2nd night of Passover. At this special community-wide event, we will be hosting approximately 30 locally-resettled refugees. The seder will have traditional elements while connecting the ancient Passover story to the current refugee crisis,  with contemporary readings and special guest speakers.  All this and a delicious meal! There will be a short service beforehand at 6:00 pm in the Main Sanctuary.

Thursday – Maundy Thursday Service

April 13, 7:00 pm
Boulevard United Methodist Church – 321 North Boulevard

Maundy Thursday was the night Jesus and the disciples gathered together in the Upper Room for their last meal together. Jesus washed the disciples’ feet and instituted what we now observe as the sacrament of Holy Communion.

Friday – Good Friday Downtown Walk

April 14, 9:30 am
Third Street Bethel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church – 614 North 3rd Street

The Stations of the Cross is a devotion to the Passion of Christ, retelling a series of events at the end of Jesus’ life. On Good Friday, we gather in the morning to walk the downtown streets stopping at churches and city hall. At each station, we pause for a couple of minutes to hear that part of the story account, reflection and prayers. In between the stations as we walk, we talk with our neighbors who journey with us. It is a time of reflection, fellowship, and celebration as followers of Jesus Christ. We hope you will consider journeying with us. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes for the walk. Vans will be available for those who are unable to walk to the nine stations. There will be a police escort for our safety.
