Biltmore Estate & Billy Graham Library Trip

Join the ForeRunners September 26-29, for a four-day, three-night trip to North Carolina, where we'll visit the Biltmore Estate and the Billy Graham Library. The Biltmore is America’s largest home, featuring 250 rooms and the Vanderbilt family’s extensive collection of furnishings, art, and antiques. The estate encompasses more than 8,000 acres, including renowned gardens, scenic views, and Antler Hill Village. The Billy Graham Library is a state-of-the-art, experience that reflects Billy’s journey from a young farm boy to an international ambassador of God’s love. It also serves as an ongoing crusade to share the Gospel. Adjacent to the library are the Graham Family Homestead and the Memorial Prayer Garden. Other special features of the trip include shopping at Opry Mills Mall in Nashville, TN and a fine dining experience at Deerpark Restaurant on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate.

All ages are welcome! You don’t have to be a Lynwood ForeRunner to participate.

Cost is based on room occupancy. Please see the registration brochure for details. The cost includes charter bus transportation, admission, three nights lodging, and seven meals.

Spaces are limited and will be filled "first-come, first-served".

About Senior Adult Forerunners

  "Those Who Go Before"

Senior adults at Lynwood have blazed the trail for others to follow and continue to lead by servant-hearted example. We have the responsibility and calling to share the greatness and faithfulness of our God as experienced in our lives. So we call our group Forerunners.
 The age of our group is around 55 and up. We are an active and committed fellowship of believers in Christ who want to continue to bring glory to God through our lives. Forerunners have a lot to share and give to those who follow.
 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus…” Hebrews 12:1-2
Get Involved!

In addition to monthly luncheons, our Forerunners enjoy several day trips and travel excursions throughout the year. There are also various ways our Forerunners regularly help our office staff in preparing for worship and with mass mailings.
