I'm new to the team and then of course late answering this but wanted to put in what we did for Pesach and Unleavened Bread Festival.
We are living in a new area and haven't meant many people yet or found any Messianic Groups, so my husband and I have been doing the Seder for several years. We enjoy doing the Traditional Seder, I have several Messianic Haggadah (the telling) books that lead you through the Seder and focus on Yeshua's fulfillment as we progress through the Seder. It's a beautiful and wonderful time spent doing/remembering this festival!!
We took all the leaven we could find out of the house (put it in a tub in the garage) and only ate Matzoh all week. The Spiritual Connection of that is meaningful also!! We had a wonderful Seder and always look forward to doing it and having it mean so much to us each year!!

We will be having 4 guests join us. We toyed with the idea of an abbreviated seder this year but have recently been reading more about honoring the ancient paths and being wary of removing the ancient boundaries. We have been convicted of our pride-doing things our own way- and not coming under some sort of authority to help us along the WAY. So, we have decided to do a traditional seder. The only thing that will not be a part of our seder is the egg on the seder plate/ from the Babylonian Captivity and the celebration of Easter--- and the extra place set for Elijah since Yeshua told us that Elijah had already come in John the Baptist. We will be having lamb ribs roasted/bbq in bitter herbs and then corn tortillas for our unleavened bread. I am making a greek casserole of brown rice, spinach, tomatoes, and black olives. The of course, we have to have charoset for dessert. The most important thing is to tell the story! I am planning to record our seder and post it to YOUTUBE. We shall see!
My husband and I want to observe Pesach but just want to do what is commanded in Torah. We don't want to be bogged down with traditions, partly because they're unnecessary in His eyes and partly because some of them have pagan roots. We're still figuring out how to do that in real life. So far we've figured out that we should eat unleavened bread for 7 days. Might have lamb to celebrate the day, but mostly because I like it.
I'm curious ... how will you celebrate Pesach?
And will you do anything about Shavuot/feast of firstfruits?
