Holy Land Tour 2022

Date: Thursday, June 10, 2021 - Friday, June 10, 2022
Time: -

I am so excited to be co-hosting a trip to the Holy Land and Oberrammergau 
on August 23 - September 4, 2022.  See reverse side for a sample itinerary for the trip, 
but I'm sure you have many questions. So on Sunday June 20, 2021 at 4pm 
Rev. Jamie Armstrong will hold an Information Session at Wilkesboro UMC in the Fellowship Hall.  
Jamie has been on several trips to the Holy Land and will share his experiences. 

I realize this is Father's Day, but it was the only day our schedules could get together, 
so we will Zoom the session for those who want to attend but may be out of town 
and record it for those who cannot attend but can watch later.

Please contact the church office to register for the 6/20 Information Session
meeting (whether in-person, Zoom, or recorded). 

Several folks have asked about the cost and at this time we only have an estimate which is 
around $4900 per person - which includes everything except daily lunches and travel insurance.

Oberrammergau Passion Play and Holy Land Tour 2022

August 23 – September 4, 2022

About the Oberammergau Passion Play:  Since 1634, the most famous Passion Play in the world has been presented every 10 years in Oberammergau, Germany. The worldwide virus pandemic of 2020 forced the Play organizers to move the production to 2022 – only the 4th time in almost 400 years that the Play has been canceled or postponed.

We will be traveling with First UMC Lincolnton through Educational Opportunities Tours.  EO has been faithfully and exceptionally serving churches throughout our Conference for years.  EO invites you to join us, and an estimated 450,000 visitors from around the world, in the small village of Oberammergau for this special Play season. 

You will experience the world’s largest dramatic and musical Passion Play in the beautiful Bavaria and Tyrol regions of Germany and Austria.
