Holy Land trip offered
Pastor Bill Shannon will depart on a 10-day trip to the land he has studied about his whole life. The journey will include touring of Bethlehem, Nazareth, Jericho, the Mount of Olives, the Upper room, the Old city of Jerusalem, the Garden tomb and more.
Pastor Shannon will bring members of Trinity United Methodist Church and interested persons in the community in hopes that the trip will awaken an understanding of the teachings of Jesus, rejuvenate their spiritual life and enhance the relationships between his church members.
The travel/study program has been arranged by Educational Opportunities, a Christian tour company whose main objective is to provide pastors and their congregations affordable, first class learning experiences in the Lands of the Bible. The program will combine sightseeing with informative lectures. The cost of the pilgrimage is an all-inclusive price of $3,396 from Louisville. The journey is open to all church members, their family and area friends.
All interested individuals are invited to an informational meeting, 3 p.m., Oct. 6, at Trinity Church, 2796 Charlestown Road, New Albany.
