Holy Lands: Footsteps of Jesus • Feb. 9 - 21, 2020

Tour Code: SBI20

 
Join Bible Teacher, Joseph Beitler of Sunrise Bible Church on a spiritual journey to the Holy Lands.  Each day is structured to include as many important sites as possible, moving in Israel along the Mediterranean coast from the roman amphitheater at Caesarea to the crusader fortress at Acre, then the biblical locations in the Galilee.  We cross the border for a visit to Petra, in Jordan, before returning to Israel to visit the ancient strong-hold at Masada and float in the Dead Sea.   Finally, we will spend several days in the Holy City of Jerusalem.   You will be in awe of the things you see, and how so many will provide inspiration as they connect you to scripture, history, and your faith.

In the Footsteps of Luther and the Passion PlayJune 16 - 27, 2020

Tour Code: RGA20 (formerly RTS20)

Pastor Terri Stagner-Collier will host this 12-day exploration of the major Luther historical sites, the Passion Play in Oberammergau, and a few Germany highlights.  In addition to the historical and cultural insights provided by our professional tour guides, Pastor Terri will also lead us in scripture study, worship and song.  This tour has been custom designed to strike a balance between group site-seeing and down-time to explore (or rest) on your own!  Martin Luther’s journey of faith grew from a tentative novitiate full of questions and doubt to that of a passionate and courageous reformer, deeply grounded in God’s grace and the truth of Scripture.  This tour will not only explore the sites and history of Luther’s life, but his theological journey as well.  The Passion Play in Oberammergau will be the pinnacle of our travels, as we too experience anew the life-changing gift of God’s grace made known on the cross.  All are welcome!
