12 day, all-inclusive Israel Study Tour
Orchard Hill Church (and some friends!) are making plans for a 12 day, all-inclusive Israel Study Tour, August 1 – August 12, 2022. On this trip you will be immersed in the land and lessons of the Bible as you’re led on a journey through Scripture with Pastor Bob and your local Israeli guide, Ronen. We will bring the past and present culture of Israel alive to all your senses. Unlike other Holy Land tours, this tour is solely focused on bringing Scripture to life through firsthand experiences, in the places where the stories actually happened. It’s going to be fun!

WHAT WILL OUR DAYS BE LIKE?
A normal day begins with a wake up call at 6:00 AM, breakfast at 7:00 AM, devotions at 7:30 AM and then we are on our way! In order to accomplish what God sets out for us to experience, the majority of our days involve moderate hiking. We travel to our various sites by bus where our hikes will begin. It is during these hikes and at these sites where God’s word is studied in its historical, cultural, geographical, and Jewish contexts. Lunch tends to fall between 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM, and will be served on location. At the end of the day, we will arrive at our hotel around 6:00 PM for a wonderful dinner and welcomed sleep.
To get a glimpse of our day to day experience, take a look at our last tour’s blog from 2019!
