Life Changes Here!

2013SummerCampFor more than 50 years, Warm Beach Camp has been a place where kids can enjoy a week of summer camp, explore nature, have fun, make new friends, and learn about God. That tradition continued this summer for hundreds of children and teens who came to camp.

One of the Camp Pastors this summer presented the concept to the campers about being adopted into God’s family. He had adoption certificates that the kids could sign and keep as a tangible reminder that they were part of God’s family. Many of the campers signed certificates indicating they were joining God’s family, and even more signed their certificates reaffirming that they were already one of God’s children.

One counselor prayed over a girl in her cabin who had signed an adoption certificate, thanking God for making them sisters in Him. With tears of joy, the camper shared that this was the first time she felt accepted as God’s daughter.

A week of summer camp is an opportunity for each camper to experience living in Christian community. They leave their world behind and for a week live in an environment of Christian love and acceptance. It often has a powerful impact on kids’ lives. They return to their world with a new direction and perspective, and a confidence in God’s love.

This happened many times this summer at camp. Many campers made decisions to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior during their week at camp. More campers re-dedicated their lives, choosing adoption into God’s family. Lives were changed through the summer camps at Warm Beach!

Please pray for the kids who came to camp and made decisions to follow Christ, that their faith in God will continue to grow and blossom.

Everywhere

Everywhere – from east to west – praise the name of the Lord. Psalms 113:2 There is a lot of talk today about what unites and divides us as people. From families to the massive global community, we don’t like division, yet we experience it. We like unity and community. It is a gift that brings joy, delight, and well-being to everyone within its reach everywhere. As a follower of Jesus Christ, the great unifier within families, communities, nations, and ...

This is Why We’re Here

On this particular Friday, twelve pairs of eyes looked down at Onyx and I from the arena grandstands. As I sat on Onyx’s sturdy frame, I looked back at the twelve campers. My mind flashed to Monday, the first day of camp. There was one camper who had been scared to get on her horse. However, after some reassurance and coaxing she had said she would try to ride. “I am so proud of you for pushing through your fear! ...
