A Time for Community …

As I visit with people every day about how they are navigating the times, one thing stands out very clear: We are meant to go through this time together.

Here are “seven points of perspective” for you to consider:

  1. God longs for us to seek Him and draw close. We long to do the same with God, whether we recognize it or not.
  2. The best way to work through challenging times is together, not alone.
  3. A good camp, retreat or conference is a very effective and cost efficient way for people to gather for community, perspective, support, and encouragement.
  4. A good camp, retreat or conference is an awesome way to draw closer to God.
  5. There is no substitute for a good campfire, some friends, and a chance to have a break from the “fullness of life.”
  6. There is nothing like hospitality and kindness when things are under pressure.
  7. If it has been awhile, this may be the right time for you to come and get away at Warm Beach Camp.

I invite you to find time to “sit around the campfire” with family and friends. Let hospitality and kindness flow. Now is a time to live in deep abiding trust in our Lord God.

Read, speak and own them. These words are for you and me. So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us ...

Blessings Big and Small

To see Warm Beach Camp empty at a time of year when it would normally be flooded with guests and campers is an odd sight. The past four months at the Camp have been challenging to say the least. Camp staff have made drastic adjustments at work to adapt to government requirements and the lack of revenue the Camp is experiencing. But, in all of this we have seen God’s blessing and provision every day. The blessings come in big ...
