We’re pumped about the Senior Adult Retreat this fall on October 22-24! There are several new features and changes that we believe will truly make this a retreat you don’t want to miss.
#1 – Meet the Boston Red Sox chaplain
When was the last time you met the chaplain of a big league team, much less a historic and hugely popular team? Dr. Bland Mason, who is also a church planter and pastor, will share his heart with us. His story of ministry in Boston is compelling and unique. Come see how God is using Bland to make a difference in the Kingdom.
#2 – Worship led by Drexel Rayford
Drexel Rayford is a favorite of many in Virginia. His talent, wisdom, and passion for Christ combine in a remarkable way. Drexel is the pastor of Walnut Grove Baptist Church and has helped with the Senior Adult Retreat in the past.
#3 – Enjoy the fall leaves in the mountains!
This is the first year the Senior Adult Retreat has been held in the fall. This week is normally peak or very close to peak for leaves here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come and surround yourself with God’s beauty!
#4 – Day trip to Poplar Forest
For an additional (small) fee, you can choose to go on a day trip to Thomas Jefferson’s vacation home, Poplar Forest, just down the road from us. Poplar Forest is currently being intensely studied to give us even more clues about Thomas Jefferson.
#5 – Unique Personal Interest Selections
This year you can come convert your old slides and pictures to digital format, learn some tips about Medicare, go on day trips, play disc golf, paint with water colors, and more! We’ll also have Bible Study, core strength exercises, and even learn some parables from Mayberry. No matter what you pick you’ll have a great time of learning, laughter, and fun.
