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.

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 ...

He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
