Join Rev. Tom Berlin and Rev. Tim Ward for a spiritual journey to sites found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Come see the roads where Jesus walked and the places that were pivotal to his life and ministry. An exciting addition will be an optional tour extension to Jordan. You’ll visit the baptismal site on the Jordan River, the Dead Sea and ancient Petra, one of the most famous archeological sites in the world. Participants will take part in several small group sessions prior to departure that will make the experience more meaningful. We are again partnering with Educational Opportunities, an agency that many churches use for this and other trips.
Trip Interest Meeting:
There will be a trip interest meeting on Monday, October 1, 7 p.m. If you would like to learn more about the trip and the details related to cost, itinerary and registration, please attend this meeting.
Small Group Meetings:
Travelers are expected to attend several pre-trip small group sessions and a final trip logistics meeting. We will study the geography and history of the region and connect a bible timeline to the places we will visit. These meetings will greatly enhance your pilgrimage experience. You can view the trip group meeting schedule here.
