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.

A Special Message about Oneg
Man does not live by chips alone…………….Part of the fellowship of Oneg is that we have all provided a little something to share and make a great meal for everyone. Many who don’t cook can pick up something at the store that is acceptable such as premade salads, like potato, egg, or macaroni, many other premade items are also available in the stores. It seems that chips is the go to for many and currently we can have as many as 21 bags of chips at any time. So in addition to asking you to bring something, we are also asking that you be a bit more creative in your selection and find an alternative to chips. Some suggestions below:

“Alternatives to chips”
Pickles, pickled peppers, pickled cauliflower, pickled okra, olives, beets, artichokes, cottage cheese, canned fruit, sunflower seeds, cheese singles, feta cheese, cheese wedges, Cheese spreads, Croutons, gluten free chips, guacamole, artichoke/spinach dip. Sliced cheese, the possibilities are endless, just keep in mind no pork, meat, chicken, crustaceans and look for kosher symbols on packaged goods. Stores often have warm foods like potato wedges or other acceptable items that can be warmed in our warmers. Lemonade, fruit punch, tea, coffee creamer, half and half are other options that would be appreciated.
We do not need large quantities – just things to embellish a great salad or add to the Oneg selections. Thank you!


We are doing general casting for the upcoming Purim play in the spring, gauging who wants to be involved and at what level.  Actors, singers, and crew: help with sets, props, costumes, lighting, and sound, are all encouraged to participate.  If you have no experience, a willingness to learn is enough.
There are no age restrictions, but you must be able to behave and be responsible for yourself.  See Rusty Acheson or Ben Wilcox

Healing rooms
During the Praise and Worship there are rooms available in the offices for all spiritual  needs.   See one of the ushers for directions during the Praise and Worship service prior to the Message.
Do you have a prayer room testimony? We’d like to share and encourage others with the wonders that our God has done for you! Please contact Kathleen below.
To join the prayer Ministry Team please contact Kathleen Marion kamsinger@aol.com
