I am excited to announce that myself, Pastor Vernon Meyer of Sun Lakes United Church of Christ and Rev Jody Topping of Faith United Methodist Church, are planning an Ecumenical Pilgrimage to the Holy the Land in May, 2017. This would be my 25th pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Jody’s first tour. We would study the scriptures in the various places described in the Gospels and the Hebrew scripture and we will celebrate several memorable worship services. We are hoping to get together a group of at least 25 people for this trip.

The dates we are looking at would be a departure date of May 15 - May 24 for the Israel tour with a post tour extension to Jordan and Petra from May 24- 26. We would take off from and arrive back into Phoenix. The cost is estimated at $3716 based on a minimum of 25 participants, double occupancy (there's an extra charge for single rooms) and includes all travel(round trip from Phoenix), tips and gratuities, taxes, 7 breakfasts and 8 dinners (lunches and drinks are on our own).

Our tour brochures are available and can also be accessed via the Marantha website:

We want to extend the invitation to all pastors and their church members to join us on this pilgrimage that will be a once in a life time experience. If possible, would you post this in your church bulletin? You can contact me for more information, at Sun Lakes UCC, 480-895-6317.
