Boomers and Beyond conference set for Orlando area

One of the fastest-growing population segments is those beyond 50. Churches are struggling to keep up with and address the unique needs and wishes of this group. As a result, the Beyond 50 Ministries of the Florida Conference and First UMC, Winter Park, have partnered to present a special statewide event, Great Expectations for Boomers & Beyond, Oct. 22-24 at the church.

This statewide conference is especially for:
  • people 50 years of age and beyond;
  • members of the clergy interested in starting or improving their 50-plus programs;
  • laity involved in leading ministries for those 50 and older;
  • anyone who wants to learn more about addressing the needs of this rapidly expanding population.
The early bird registration fee is $100, good until Sept. 1. After that, the cost per person will be $125. For information, contact Rev. Gary Rideout at (407) 644-2906, ext.223, or
