Senior Celebration

By: Richard Carnes

Annually the Kentucky Baptist Convention conducts a wonderful multi-site event entitled Senior Living Celebrations for Kentucky Baptist senior adults. This year’s theme is Race Of A Lifetime, based on the scripture passage of Hebrews 12:1. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate at either Beacon Hill Baptist Church, Somerset on April 16, Parkway Baptist Church, Bardstown on April 17 or Second Baptist, Hopkinsville on April 19. The Kentucky Baptist Foundation is honored to again sponsor the breakfast at each celebration and provide leadership for one of the workshops that will be offered during this event.

This popular Kentucky Baptist Convention event is always well attended by enthusiastic senior adults who come to worship, learn, and celebrate life together. This year, there will be a dozen workshops at each location, covering topics such as creative drama in ministry, being the hands and feet of Christ through volunteering, missions and ministry opportunities for seniors, travel tips for your next senior adult trip, and more.

The Kentucky Baptist Foundation’s trust counsel, Austin Wilkerson, will lead an excellent workshop session titled “Estate Planning Mistakes and Solutions”, that helps attendees discover what the biggest estate planning mistakes are and how to avoid them to assure you make the most of what you have. The session will also detail the essential aspects of key incapacity planning tools including Powers of Attorney, Healthcare Advance Directives, and Living Wills.

Austin and I hope to see you at one of the upcoming Senior Living Celebration events, so you too can be inspired to “run with perseverance”. Come join us for breakfast and be sure to attend one of Austin’s workshop sessions during the day. If you are not able to attend, you may always contact us directly to discuss how best to organize your estate planning goals to achieve your personal and charitable objectives to support your church and other Baptist causes.
