Passover – Monday evening April 22nd– Seder/Passover Meal 7:00 pm (sunset 7:57pm) starts Holy Day (Sabbath) Unleavened Bread-
The Passover teaches us that Y’shua Messiah/Jesus Christ was sinless and, as the true Lamb of God, gave His life so that the sins of humanity could be forgiven and the death penalty removed (1 Corinthians 5:7; 1 Peter 1:18-20; Romans 3:25). Passover, although not observed as a Holy Day, is the first festival of the year.

First Fruits at 12PM on Sunday April 28th (some call it Resurrection Sunday)
The Feast of Unleavened Bread teaches us that we have been called to reject lawlessness and repent of sin. We are to live by every word of God and according to the teachings of Y’shua Messiah/Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 5:8; Matthew 4:4). During this festival, leaven symbolizes sin and, as such, is removed from our homes for the seven days of the festival (1 Corinthians 5:7-8; Exodus 12:19). By eating unleavened bread we picture living a life of sincerity and truth, free from sin.
Pentecost/Shavuot - Sunday June 16th (starts at sunset Saturday) Back to back sabbaths No work. We will have Shavuot/Pentecost service at 12PM on Sunday.
The Feast of Pentecost/Shavuot, teaches us that Y’shua Messiah/Jesus Christ came to build His Church. This festival pictures the coming of the Holy Spirit and the establishment of the Church. The first fruits are those who will be given salvation at the return of Christ. They have been empowered with the Holy Spirit, which creates in each one a new heart and nature to live by the commandments of God (Exodus 23:16; Acts 2:1-4, Acts 2:37-39; Acts 5:32; James 1:18).
