It’s Time to Tee-Up!

By Darrell Weiland, Warm Beach Camp Foundation Director

“FORE!” I yelled! My shot went left and into the woods, “OB” – out of bounds. Fortunately, we were playing best ball and I was confident that Phil could put it long and in the fairway – which he did!

That’s one of the benefits of playing in a tournament like the one we will be holding on Monday, September 22, 2008. This will be the second annual Kids 2 Camp Benefit Golf Tournament, and again it will be held at one of Washington State’s best golf courses – The Plateau Club in Sammamish.

Player check-in begins at 10 am through 11:45 am, and the driving range will be open (for those like me who are trying to find their swing!).

Between 11 and 11:30 am, we’ll have a putting contest. Remember the adage, “Drive for show, putt for dough!” After the putting contest, we’ll have a quick lunch.

At noon, players will go to their assigned starting hole for a “shotgun” start. We anticipate finishing the tournament by 5 pm, followed by a delicious dinner featuring awards for contests such as low team score, individual closest to the pin, individual long drive, etc. We’ll also have the opportunity to acquire some great items during our “silent auction.”

This is a great opportunity to not only enjoy the fun and fellowship of golfing with close (and new) friends, but also assist Warm Beach Camp in ministering to “at risk kids” who cannot afford to attend camp. We saw several hundred children and youth come to camp this summer because of the Kids 2 Camp scholarship program, and many of them made first time decisions to trust Christ as their Savior while at Camp. What a blessing!

Registration is $245.00 per person and includes lunch, two carts per foursome, eighteen holes of golf, dinner for you and your spouse, and best of all – the knowledge that a major portion of that fee will help bring kids to camp!

You still have time to sign up your favorite foursome as a team. If you don’t have a foursome, no problem! We will pair you up with some others who will need you! Not a great golfer? That’s OK! This is best ball and it encourages team effort and camaraderie. Don’t golf at all? Perhaps you could sponsor at team!

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 ...
