A Long-Time Promise is about to be Kept!

cl_construction_250“Where are the restrooms?” has been the oft-asked question of guests in Cedar Lodge, and the answer has been as long and complicated as the walk to get there! For more than 30 years, there has been talk about moving the restrooms to the main floor, but, for a variety of reasons, it was never possible. At long last, work has begun on this project, and that long walk downstairs to the restrooms is about to come to an end!

Funded through gifts received from the Embracing the Vision campaign, the work, projected to cost just over $1,000,000, includes replacing the roofing on the A-frame center section of Cedar Lodge, relocating the water and electrical connections to the building, upgrading building infrastructure to meet current building codes, along with the construction of the new restrooms that you will see, and, under them at the basement level, storage rooms that you probably won’t get to see. The new restrooms are expected to open in March 2012.

If you find yourself on the grounds during the construction process, we ask for your patience. As with most improvements, there is a period where, before it gets better, it becomes more of a challenge. We are doing our best to make things as convenient as possible for our guests during this time.

We sincerely thank each of you who have helped fund this work. You have helped us keep a promise! Soon, when the question is asked, “where are the restrooms?” we can say, “right over there!”

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 ...
