FR Michigan Trip web graphic

Join us September 18-21, for a four-day, three-night trip to Michigan, where we'll visit the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation and Greenfield Village. You'll discover America—its culture, inventions, people and can-do spirit—and hundreds of hands-on ways to explore it, enjoy it, and be inspired by it. At The Henry Ford Museum, experience one of the largest collections of its kind ever assembled and learn about the breakthroughs big and small that have made our world what it is today. Spread across more than 80 acres, Greenfield Village comes alive with the unforgettable sights, sounds, and settings of America’s past. You can catch a ride on a Model T, watched skilled glassblowers, and visit historic buildings that were moved from their original locations and reconstructed on-site. Other special features of the trip include an 1800’s period dining experience at Eagle Tavern on the grounds of Greenfield Village and a visit to Belle Isle along the US/Canada border.

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.
