Connecting people to Jesus at Rainier Retreat Camp & Retreat Center

Warm Beach Camp Ministries partners with Crystal Mountain Ski Resort to make Rainier Camp & Retreat Center home for many of Crystal’s seasonal workers. Serving our Guests at Rainier Camp is a true call of God and a fantastic opportunity for Warm Beach Camp Ministries to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

I can’t lie, it’s a challenge, as most of the guests on the mountain don’t know Jesus. The difficulty lies in presenting the Gospel in a way that does not push people away. The average of 40 attendees through six hosted gatherings is an amazing win. The gatherings allow for shared time together over snacks. So far, I met three believers and talked about faith, family, and where to attend church. It is fun to get to know the group, and I hope to host a couple of Bible studies a week for anyone interested in joining.

I am truly thankful for the opportunity to work with the Crystal Mountain staff. I see the Lord moving in many ways for our guests at Rainer Camp. Even though it is not an easy task, it is an assignment from the Lord to shepherd His people! Please pray for our guests and me at Rainier Camp & Retreat Center that His light will shine and His Spirit will move!

A Heartwarming and Joyous Plan!

When a woman from a senior community quilter’s group came to Warm Beach Camp, she was not expecting to have a bond with a group of students attending a high school retreat. However, where God is at work, connections can be found in the unlikeliest of places. At mealtimes, the woman and her quilter friends would go to the dining room and share the space with a group of teenagers and their teachers. Through conversation over a delicious meal, it ...
