• Holy Land

We’re going back to THE HOLY LAND this fall and taking another great Crossroads’ tour group. The dates are set: November 6-15 and we’re going with the premiere tour agency in America, Discovery Cruises & Tours.

Janis and I will serve as your tour hosts. This once-in-a-lifetime, ten-day trip will be the most amazing experience you’ve ever had. (Sign up for the informational meeting on Monday, March 6 at 7:00 in the Grand Hall.)

See Caesarea, with its ancient seaport and Roman theater; Megiddo and the Valley of Armageddon; Mt. Carmel, where Elijah defeated the false prophets of Baal; ride in a boat across the Sea of Galilee; and see Capernaum, which served as the headquarters for Jesus’ ministry. Visit Caesarea Philippi, where Peter told Jesus, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God”; and stand on the very mount where Jesus preached the most famous sermon of all time.

Standing by the Jordan River and traveling into the Holy City, Jerusalem; getting to go to Gethsemane, seeing the Mt. of Olives, the Lion’s Gate, the Pool of Bethesda, the Upper Room and the Tomb of King David will be amazing. You’ll be hard pressed to describe it.

Pray at the Wailing Wall, visit En Gedi where David hid from King Saul, and float in the Dead Sea. (Yes, you can do that and you won’t believe it!) Ride a huge cable car up to the mammoth, magnificent fortress of Masada; but nothing will compare with seeing Golgotha and standing inside the empty tomb of our Savior.

Here’s a brief video that shows some of the places we will go. Hopefully, it will stir something within you that will inspire you to find a way to go with us.

If you want to go with us, there will be a very important informational meeting Monday night, March 6 at 7:00. We’ll have representatives from Discovery Worldwide Ministries here to give us information and answer all our questions. Please RSVP so we will have enough materials for everyone. If you already know you are going with us, you can register on the Discovery website. Both the trip and the meeting are for adults only. No childcare will be available.

If you already know you are going with us, you can register on the Discovery website.

Janis and I have had the privilege of going to the Holy Land twice now, and I can tell you it has absolutely changed our love for JESUS, how we read the Bible, enhanced our understanding of it, and radically affected how I preach and teach it. SIGN UP NOW to go with us, and come to the meeting Monday night, March 6.

We will have brochures with more information for you Sunday when you come to worship. If you live outside of the DFW area and want to go with us, check out the Discovery website links provided in this blog. Space is limited.

Psalm 122:6 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure.”
