Join this Unforgettable Christian Tour to Israel with Lakeside Community Chapel and Steve Kreloff
Visiting Israel is a life-changing experience. Seeing the land of the Bible creates a fresh excitement for God’s Word and a new understanding of our Lord’s life and ministry. Someone has said that visiting Israel is worth a year of Bible College. And I agree!
Because of the unique spiritual enrichment a trip to the Holy Land offers, my wife and I would like to invite you to join us in going to Israel October 27 - November 6, 2017. We will be touring significant biblical sites, studying God’s Word, worshiping the Lord, and fellowshipping together.
Imagine looking out on the Sea of Galilee, standing near the place where the Temple once stood in Jerusalem, and meditating on the Lord’s death in the area known as the Garden Tomb. These are just a few of the many meaningful experiences you will have in Israel.
Inspiration Cruises and Tours and I have worked together to make this a once in a lifetime experience. I invite you to join us for a journey that will provide wonderful memories you will never forget.
Warmly in Christ,
Friday, October 27, 2017 (Depart Home)

Home of the Bible
Israel is a place where hidden oases are tucked away amid windswept deserts, where rocky cliffs are carved by ancient rivers and where historical ruins lie within sight of modern architecture. A melting pot of religion, culture and spiritual depth, a Christian tour to Israel is far more than a typical vacation. It is a journey into the origins of belief—one that will connect your faith today with the depth and power of the Christian story. For followers of Christ, a trip to the Holy Land is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a place that doesn’t just bring the Bible to life but adds a visual dimension to the beliefs you’ve staked your life upon.
Visit the places of the Bible to see where Jesus lived, walked and where His disciples began sharing the Gospel of His love.
