Embracing the Vision Campaign keeps the path clear to the cross

By Nancy Nelson, Development Director

It was down to the wire at 11:30 am on December 31, 2009, when the last commitment came through enabling Warm Beach Camp to claim the $490,000 M.J. Murdock grant for the renovation of Cedar Lodge. And yes, I did dance on my desk, as promised. There’s a picture hanging in my office as proof. The Cedar Lodge project is part of the “Embracing the Vision” Campaign begun in 2006. It means that public restrooms will be moved to the main floor. The Cedar Lodge project also includes the renovation and expansion of Cedar Lodge Chapel and the kitchen. Work will begin as soon as all the necessary permitting processes are completed.

It has been amazing to watch God “call forth the living stones (that’s you and me!) to embrace the Kingdom vision He has for Camp. At present, $6.7 million has been committed to the campaign, which in these challenging economic times has been miraculous.

The total list of Campaign projects is long and many have been completed. Bottom line, investing in the three areas of the Campaign (People, Community, and Environment) translates into the Camp’s over-all vision of “keeping the path clear to the cross.”

We thank God for HIS faithfulness and we thank the many people who are supporting the campaign, too.

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 ...
