Can You Stick Around after the Party?

250_LOCTake-DownHave you ever been the “last man standing” after your holiday celebration — the one standing at the sink washing a stack of dishes and filling garbage bags with wrapping paper and bows? That’s what it can feel like around the Camp during the Take-Down Event on December 30th and 31st when it is time to begin putting away the decorations from The Lights of Christmas.

Just like at your home in January, taking down the Christmas decorations can seem like the hardest part of the Holidays. Yet, for The Lights, it is an important part of the event each year. Lots of help getting the work done makes a big difference. We are looking for folks willing to stick around and help after the party’s over.

It usually takes our staff almost the entire month of January to get everything taken down and put away. How much gets done at the Take-Down Event on December 30th and 31st will determine how far into January it will take us to get everything cleaned up and nicely put away.

The Take-Down Event volunteers are some of the unseen heroes of The Lights of Christmas! Would you like to join us? While it may not sound like a glamorous job, we do have a lot of fun, and lunch is provided both days. You can sign up at our website by clicking on Volunteer on The Lights of Christmas menu. Or, you can call the Registration Dept. at (360) 652-7575.

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 ...
