October 18-27, 2019

Pastor Tom and Jill would like to invite everyone in our church family to join them on a cruise to Greece to explore the travels of the Apostle Paul. Also traveling on this trip will be our own Bishop Bruce Ough and his wife Char. The trip is October 18-27, 2019 and offers an additional extension tour of Athens and Corinth (October 27-28). The trip is on Azamara Club Cruises and organized by Educational Opportunities. On the trip, we will visit Greece, Crete and Turkey. We will explore several sites connected to the ministry of Paul and visit the cave where tradition says John wrote the Book of Revelation. Along the way, our cruise will also make port in a couple of beautiful seaside Greek communities.

Bishop Ough and Char will be at our church on November 1 to make a presentation about this adventure. Brochures can be found at the Welcome Center desk or see Pastor Tom. You can also download a brochure here.
