Join First Pres for a Christian Journey of a
Lifetime to the Land of the Bible
 

ICON Holy Land Tour

APRIL 24 - MAY 5, 2020

 

Walk where Jesus walked, stand on the Mount of Beatitudes, and imagine listening to Jesus give the Sermon on the Mount.

 

AN EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY

Led by Marilyn Borst, Associate Director for Partnership Development with The Outreach Foundation, with on-site teaching by Rev. Paul Detterman, our team will depart Chicago on Friday, April 24, and settle into our Jerusalem hotel for a good night’s sleep. Beginning with worship in Jerusalem on Sunday, April, 26, and for the week that follows, we will explore the Biblical and historic sites of Jerusalem, Jericho, and Bethlehem. Our journey will take us through Capernaum and Nazareth, and will end with three days on the shores of the Sea of Galilee before returning home on Tuesday, May 5.

LOCAL PERSPECTIVE

In addition to touring, we will visit three vital Christian ministries—Bethlehem Bible College, Palestinian Bible Society, and Musalaha (a reconciliation ministry)—as well as local congregations in both the West Bank and Israel.

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

Marilyn will recommend readings that can help us wrestle with the complex issues of peace and justice in this fascinating, but fractured and contested, land.
