At Sundays Colony Christian Church, Pastor Chase Reibel gave an overview of the trip that he, Jessica and Bruce Symes took to Israel. With his presentation were pictures from the Holy Land that corresponded with locations from the Bible. They saw Abrahams Gate, olive presses, ceremonial baths and Golgotha. They believe they know the location where David fought Goliath, Peters house, and possibly the tomb in which Jesus was buried. They saw how large a millstone truly is; saw a 2,000-year-old boat similar to what Peter, James and John would have used to fish in; and the Jordan river where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.
Pastor Chase even gave a sermon on the Sea of Galilee and baptized several people.
Symes gave the Communion Meditation over Psalm 100.
