It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

…at Warm Beach Camp!

LOC VOL 2013 AIt takes between 120 and 160 volunteers each night to put on The Lights of Christmas, about 2,750 spots to fill in total! Last year The Lights of Christmas volunteers contributed over 10,000 hours of volunteer service.

With The Lights of Christmas fast approaching, we are looking for volunteers, especially in Parking and as Fireside Greeters, among a long list of other jobs. Often, there is a challenge filling spots the week before Christmas and the four nights after Christmas. We could really use you during December 17-23 and 26-29.

The volunteers provide the smiles and warm hospitality that the event is best known for. Plus, the volunteers get to be a part of an amazing event. What better way to experience The Lights than being on the team that puts it on!

We also need about 150 volunteers to come to Thanksgiving Working Weekend, November 26 to 29, to help put on all the finishing touches. Then, after The Lights closes, we need another 150 volunteers to help with Take-Down, getting lots of stuff taken down and put away. That will happen December 30 and 31.

Whew! Are you out of breath yet?

As a volunteer, you can share the hope and joy of Christmas with the thousands of people attending The Lights. We have a volunteer task that will work for you!

If you are interested in helping before, during, or after the event, you can get more information or sign-up at our volunteer website. Or, give Jessica Wilson, Volunteer Coordinator, a call at (360) 312-3417. She can answer any questions you may have. For the best chance of getting the volunteer assignment you want, sign up as soon as possible!

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. 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 ...
