A Labor of Love

Since its original construction, the facility has seen few upgrades or renovations. Two years ago Warm Beach started raising money for an interior make-over. Forty-six donors have contributed to the renovation project that will upgrade flooring, doors, furniture, décor, improve heating sources, lighting and outlets, and address needed repairs. Meeting room upgrades already completed include new carpet and gas stove, and improvements to come are new lighting and décor. Room renovations began in early January and are expected to be completed by June 2018.

It only seems appropriate that volunteers are part of the renovation process since it was also volunteers who built the facility 56 years ago. Volunteers Bob Graves, Benny Kruger, and Larry Hagglund have been working on the electrical components in the rooms since early January. Their work on the facility is an invaluable gift. Volunteerism has been, and continues to be, a sustaining factor in the ministry of Warm Beach Camp.

One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
