Overview

I am excited to invite you on a life-changing adventure together - a trip to Israel in 2024. 

This is an incredible opportunity for us to experience the Holy Land firsthand and acquire a deeper understanding of our faith from a unique spiritual perspective.

The journey will begin in Jerusalem, the ancient city of King David that has been the center of Jewish history for centuries. We will visit the Temple Mount, walk through the narrow alleys of the Old City, and stand in awe as we gaze upon some of the holiest sites on earth. From there, we will take pilgrimages to Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Jericho, as well as other important locations related to Jesus' ministry and life. Along with these trips, we will also have time set aside for rest, reflection, worship, and fellowship among ourselves.

This trip promises to be an amazing journey filled with unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. I firmly believe it will leave us all changed forever - strengthened by faith and encouraged by God’s grace to continue on our path in service to Him. So please prayerfully consider joining me as we make this incredible trek together!

In Christ,

Pastor Scott Vander Ploeg
