Adult/Senior Adult


Join us as we launch a wonderful hour of worship, hosted by our partner congregation, FBC Dalton. Reverend Katie Faison of Central Baptist Church in Newnan preaches a wonderful sermon and the choir and instrumentalists from FBC Dalton provide wonderful music for our worship. You’ll hear Joy Huddlestun of FBC Jasper (and long-time Senior Adult Retreat participant and leader) play a beautiful prelude; Rev. Mark Green of FBC Decatur will call us to worship; and, Karen Harwell of Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist in Atlanta will lead us in prayer.
CBF/GA is ever grateful for the good work and partnership of FBC Dalton for our event this year. Dr. Jonathan Barlow and his staff and congregation members have gone above and beyond in editing and producing this worship video. We are grateful for their skill and generosity in making this retreat successful.

*Recorded sessions will be available for viewing anytime after they are launched.
