Oberammergau-Passion Play/Holy Land Trip

June 27 - July 9, 2022

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. Join Pastor Steve and make your plans today for the 2022 Oberammergau Passion Play while tickets are still available.

 

Pastor Steve would love to meet with you and your family at your convenience to share information about the 2022 trip to the Holy Land and Oberammergau to see the Passion Play, the world’s largest dramatic depiction of the passion of Jesus Christ: his trial, suffering, and death. If you have questions about the trip or would like to schedule a time to meet personally with Pastor Steve, please contact Beth Barnwell at bbarnwell@mountpisgah.org. She will be happy to schedule a time that works for you.
