July 29 at 5:30 pm in Room C200 at First UMC McKinney, Information meeting for the Holy Land Trip – January 18-27, 2013. We will give you information about this trip and answer all your questions as we are able.
Why this trip to this place at this time?
Motivated by the transforming power of Jesus Christ and a desire to enjoy a deeper relationship and understanding of Christ this trip will provide an opportunity like no other. It is a spiritual pilgrimage to follow the route of Jesus and the disciples. We will travel on the major highways that are the same route as ancient roads. We will walk in the Jordan River where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. We will sail on a wooden boat on the Sea of Galilee, walk the Via Dolorosa and end at Calvary and the Empty Tomb.
Even more than seeing the sites! We will meet and worship with Christians living in the Holy Land and support missions in the Palestinian controlled land.
Dr. John Harman will accompany this trip and teach pre-trip study classes in the fall. Tina Ripperger, Bettina_Ripperger@yahoo.com, is the group leader and is able to answer questions about the trip.
