Register for CBF/GA 2020 Virtual Senior Adult Retreat

July 31 - September 23


Register Here!

Thanks to creative thinking and planning by the Senior Adult Committee, the CBF/GA Senior Adult Retreat will take place virtually this year, Sunday – Monday, September 27-28. The retreat will begin on Sunday afternoon with an online ZOOM fellowship time, followed by the launch of recorded worship lead as planned by Katie Faison, Associate Pastor to Children, Women and Senior Adults at Central Baptist, Newnan. Monday will bring the launch of several recorded breakout sessions. The recorded sessions will be available for viewing anytime once they are launched online, so you will not be tied to viewing at those dates and times.
While First Baptist, Dalton, will not be physically hosting the retreat, we thank them in advance for graciously providing staff support and technical assistance with recording the retreat sessions and assisting with music for worship.
Information about accessing the ZOOM fellowship time will be sent to registered participants shortly before the retreat dates. Registration is free, so sign up soon!
*Recorded sessions will be available for viewing anytime after they are launched.
