Prepare for Passover

April 2019 J.B. Bernstein is coming to Eitz Chaim to teach us how to share our faith in preparation for the April 22nd Passover Seder Outreach to the community.

As Part of our preparation we are wanting all of our adults to work on memorizing verses to share with people they meet. We are beginning with John 1:12 and John 3:3 please try and learn it in the NIV  – this is the most user friendly version for non believers.
John 1:12 New International Version (NIV)
12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God-
John 3:3 New International Version (NIV)
3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of
God unless they are born again.”

Children’s Classes ~ We need new teachers. Teach children ages 2-12 during the drash. EC membership and background checks are required.
