Briefly…

Christmas Year-around! Just because we took the lights down doesn’t mean we are done with The Lights of Christmas. Many exciting plans are being made for our thirteenth season opening December 3! If you would like to help with welding, construction, design, and décor, please contact Keith Yarter, Director of The Lights of Christmas. He’ll find a project that is right for you and that will greatly bless thousands of people this next holiday season. It takes a year-round effort to get The Lights on every year.

Does your church want to hold a women’s retreat? If you don’t want the hassle and work involved in organizing the retreat yourself, consider bringing your women’s group to Warm Beach Women’s Retreats April 24-26 or May 1-3, 2009. You’ll be able to do things together as a group as well as listen to the amazing teaching of Women of Faith speaker, Thelma Wells. For more information, contact Warm Beach Camp’s Registration Department or register online.

If you would like to help the Camp with a financial gift, you can make your donation online through our secure online system. You can even establish a recurring donation so you don’t have to worry about writing monthly checks. Log on to the Camp’s website and click on “Support WBC.” Thank you.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. 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.
