Holy Land Trip 2024 Information

Join Pastor Jathaniel on a Holy Land Classic tour, which will serve as a rare opportunity to make a Lenten pilgrimage to the land that serves as the birthplace of our faith. This pilgrimage will be an all-inclusive, guided tour from February 25-March 6, 2024. This pilgrimage will be a small group expedition where we will be traveling and staying together with our own transportation and guide. This pilgrimage will bring scripture to life as we learn, pray, and worship together in the Holy Land. We will also be participating in a preparatory study that will begin to connect Jesus with the land, which will add another dimension to this special opportunity. To find out more, you are invited to visit the link below.
