Bible Reading (Exodus 12:1-13 NIV) The Passover
1 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 “This month is to be
for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 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. 4 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. 5 The animals you choose must be yearold males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or
the goats. 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month,
when all the members of the community of Israel must slaughter them
at twilight. 7 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. 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire,
along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. 9 Do not eat
the meat raw or boiled in water, but roast it over a fire—with the
head, legs and internal organs. 10 Do not leave any of it till morning;
if some is left till morning, you must burn it. 11 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.
12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down
every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment
on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. 13 The blood will be a sign for
you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will
pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike

Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper
As we begin a New Year, with all its opportunities and times of testing, there is no better
place or way than to begin in the sacrament of the Lord’s supper. It is the perfect way
for God’s people to make a new resolution and commit our ways for 2015 to the Lord.
The Lord’s table is open to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Today there is
no separately marked area for communicants and non communicants. Those who are
not communicant members are simply asked to pass the elements along the row . Office
bearers will be on hand to assist as the elements are dispensed to the Congregation.
