Auction Recap

By Jeannie Patterson

Grateful. This is the first word that comes to mind when I think about the Kids 2 Camp Benefit Day. Grateful for those who donated such fun and amazing items. Grateful for all the volunteers and staff who contributed time and energy to make this day happen. Grateful for generous bidders.  Most of all, grateful for a God who brings so many together to work and give for the sake of His Kingdom.

It was a beautiful day, not too hot or too cold. The auction tent looked better than ever thanks to our amazing decorators. Over 300 items were auctioned to generous bidders. Total Fiasco, a band comprised of the Vance family, brought upbeat and uplifting live music adding to the fun atmosphere. Caribbean Cuisine and Warm Beach Espresso kept everyone full and satisfied. There were options for the kids as well, to keep them (and parents) happy.

The auction items themselves brought in close to $41,000. Which started with a hilarious bidding war for the very first item, a chocolate fudge cake, culminating in a $2,000 finish! The generosity didn’t end there, between all the different facets of Benefit Day almost $188,000 was raised for scholarships! Praise the Lord!

Our goal was to raise scholarship funds to help give kids a chance to experience camp. Kids who would not otherwise have that opportunity. By God’s grace, and to His glory, this was accomplished!

Pray for the planning that is already in the works for next year – and mark your calendars! Saturday, August 29, 2020.  Hope to see you there!

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
