12 day, all-inclusive Israel Study Tour

Orchard Hill Church (and some friends!) are heading out next Summer for a 12 day, all-inclusive Israel Study Tour July 14-25, 2019. 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 others, while your local guide and driver 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 first-hand experiences in the places the stories actually happened. It’s going to be fun!

Registration is Now Open!


Israel Study Tour at Orchard HillA normal day begins with a wake-up call at 6:00 a.m., a buffet breakfast opens at 6:30, we circle up for devotions at 7:00, and by 7:10 we are on the bus and on our way! We travel to our various sites by bus and then continue on our feet to a site where God’s word is studied in its historical, cultural, geographical, and Jewish contexts. At some sites, you will have the option to enjoy a moderate hike through the diverse land of Israel. If a longer hike is not your thing, you will still be able to get to the teaching site by other means. We want everyone who can to be able to join us. That being said, you will need to be mobile, be able to walk short distances and climb some stairs. Lunch is served on location around 1:00 where we typically enjoy some Middle Eastern food. Following lunch we make a few more stops and then at the end of the day, we will arrive at our very comfortable hotel between 6PM and 8PM. At the hotel, we will have a wonderful buffet dinner, some great laughs and conversation, a warm shower, and some welcomed sleep.
