Israel Trip 2014
WHO? Anyone who attends Stonebridge Church, and any family or friends of those who
attend Stonebridge who are interested in going. We will be going with Templeton Tours
out of North Carolina which has been in business for nearly 30 years and has taken over
500 trips to the Holy Land. You can check out their website at www.templetontours.org
or call 1.800.334.2630 for more information and see the trip itinerary.
WHAT? A 10-day trip to the Holy Land that will change your life and the way you read
the Bible. It would be the trip of a lifetime where you would visit many sites where Jesus
lived, walked, and ministered.
WHY? It will help deepen your relationship with Christ, and help you read the Bible
in “color” rather than black and white. Imagine listening to a message from the Gospels
while in a boat on the Sea of Galilee…walking the streets of Jerusalem…floating in the
Dead Sea…praying in the Garden of Gethsemane…taking communion at the empty
tomb. These are only a few of the experiences you will have on the trip.
WHEN? May 13-22, 2014
HOW MUCH? The trip will cost $4,595.00 per person. This amount is all-inclusive and
includes everything except souvenirs. This is only $150.00 more than when we went 3
years ago. We will fly on United from Cedar Rapids to Chicago to Newark and then to
HOW MANY? To receive the discounts from the airline and hotels we need to have 20
people going to form a group. There is not maximum number.
WHAT IS OUR ROLE? I (Pastor Robin Tyner) and my wife Kathryn will be the hosts of the group. We would also provide materials and study aids before we leave so you can get the maximum out of our time while we are in Israel. Templeton Tours does all the logistical work of receiving the payments and booking the flights. They also provide a professional tour guide who is with us every day and is very knowledgeable of the sites, history, and culture of Israel. Pastor Randy will also be going with us.
NOW WHAT? Pray about the possibility of going. Start saving your shekels. Tell
other people who may be interested about the trip. Feel free to contact me if you have any
questions. While we were in Israel we felt very safe, and found the accommodations to be
excellent. The whole experience had a profound impact on me and increased my passion
for Christ and His coming. If you experience the wonder of the Holy Land in person you
will never be the same!
