We look forward to celebrating Passover with you!
Here’s a glance at the day and order of the events during the celebration:
Corporate Intercession: We will have a 1 hour quiet time. All are welcome, including praying children, as long as the atmosphere of quiet intercession is maintained (please no running around or conversations with each other).
Worship: Join us in preparing our hearts for Passover. Doors will be closed between 4:30 and 5.
Explanation of Moedim (God’s Appointed Times… AKA: Feasts, Festivals, Seasons)
Seder (the telling of the Passover story through an interactive experience)
Passover Feast: Wood Fired Lamb, roasted potatoes, spring salad, unleavened bread.
Often we are asked how one could contribute to the event. Here are some ways:
- We welcome donations towards feast expenses.
- You may bring red wine and/or sparkling juice for your table (or a few tables). If you would like to contribute in this way, we will need the wine to be dropped off on Sunday (April 2) or no later than 2 pm on Wednesday.
- If you are local (Willmar, MN), you may bring one or two shelf stable desserts to share (these will need to be dropped off no later than Tuesday evening before the event).
- We ABSOLUTELY NEED to know if you are bringing something and the item(s) you are bringing. Please send an email to email@example.com to let us know which items you’re bringing. Once you commit to bring something, remember the rest of the attendees will depend on you for that item.

Passover Feast at the Back 40 Farm
We are thrilled to invite you to join us for our annual Passover Experience at the Back 40 Farm.
- BIG CROWD HEADS-UP: It used to be that we could host a Passover Seder in our dining room, but that is no longer possible. Through a strange and wonderful course of events, our gathering has grown to large numbers of people we no longer can fit into our house. Our capacity is limited to 150 so do not postpone your RSVP. If your plans change, we kindly ask you to let us know so that we can add guests from the waiting list.
- PARKING: We are a working farm. It will also be early spring. Snow will be melted (Yah willing!) but our ground will be soft. We will be sending out final parking instructions closer to the event when we know the conditions better.
- DRESS CODE: Remember, we are a working farm. Please dress appropriately to be warm and comfortable. We will update our mud status closer to the event.
- VENUE: hmm, perhaps “venue” is a bit of a stretch, but we are opening up the top floor of our barn to host this celebration. It’s pretty rustic, but we are working hard to make it cozy! A porta-potty will be available.
- ACCOMMODATIONS: Unlike a spectator event, we are striving to make this Feast an immersive experience, and develop a sense of community which takes time and effort. Our events tend to go throughout the whole day and into the night. If you are driving from a far away location, consider staying overnight in a nearby hotel. Willmar has a number of inns — The Best Western, Country Inn and Suites, etc. There is also at least one Airbnb accommodation in town as well. If you have a camper, you are welcome to park it on our farm. (at this point we do not offer electrical or sewer hookups, but there is lots of space to park your rig). We do not offer showers at this time and NO meals will be provided beyond what is served during the Passover Experience. If you are considering camping at the farm, please contact Al at: 320.212.8708
- PLEASE FEED YOUR CHILDREN AND YOURSELVES BEFORE YOU COME. The Feast itself will happen after Messianic Seder and Worship, around 6:30 pm. No food will be served prior to 6:30.
