LEESBURG (FLBaptist)—Spiritual enrichment, worship, Bible studies and a variety of workshops specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of senior adults will be offered during the Seniors Enrichment Retreat Feb. 3-5 at Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center.  

The retreat will highlight inspirational messages led by Jim Henry, pastor emeritus at First Baptist Church in Orlando and past Southern Baptist Convention president, during the Monday night session; and Charles Roesel, pastor emeritus of First Baptist Church in Leesburg.   

Leading the music throughout the three-day event will be Bill and Anna Keith, a Christian musical duo from First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach. On Monday night, a special concert will feature the world renowned gospel quartet, The Florida Boys. Larry Ford, a Grammy award winner known for his participation in the Gaither Homecoming videos, will lead worship on Tuesday night. 

Seniors in attendance will also be able to choose from more than 10 breakout sessions on Tuesday morning, with topics including overcoming obstacles, relating to adult children, missions and several Bible studies for men and women. A variety of fun activities will be provided on Tuesday afternoon including painting and flower arrangement classes, a movie, and games in the center’s fellowship center.

This is the first time in its 50-year history the conference center is programming its own events. Other specialized events scheduled in 2014 are a men’s retreat, “Live Out Loud,” March 28-30, 2014; a women’s retreat, “Fully Committed,” Sept. 19-21; and a Southern Gospel Festival, Nov. 3-5.
