  • Newtown Interfaith Seder, This Year To Be At NUMC

    On Sunday, April 6, at 4 pm, an Interfaith Passover Seder will be celebrated at Newtown United Methodist Church.  As has been done in recent years, the ceremony will be presented by clergy and lay people of many houses of worship in Newtown. 

    The Reverend Mel Kawakami, pastor of Newtown United Methodist Church (NUMC), said, “This is always a special community event. This year, we will introduce a little more Christian perspective in this Jewish observance with an emphasis on the role of woman in the story.”
