Potter’s Wheel Series Provides Faith-Building Opportunities

At Warm Beach Camp, our goal is to provide events and experiences that “keep the path clear to the cross,” and to help each person that steps foot on the grounds come away feeling encouraged and stronger in their faith.

The Potter’s Wheel Retreat series is specifically designed for spiritual formation. These retreats are intended to provide relaxed, reflective times to enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings, time of personal prayer, rest, renewal, meaningful worship, and powerful teaching.

As part of the Potter’s Wheel Retreat series in 2009, Gary Thomas will be returning to host A Sacred Marriage Weekend, February 6-8, 2009.

Gary Thomas is the author of several books and articles and is founder and director of the Center for Evangelical Spirituality. Gary’s passion for authentic Christian living led him to devote his life to helping people see God’s truth integrated into everyday life. Gary presents messages that are compelling, thoughtful, and practical.

The weekend is designed for married couples who want to rekindle hope and romance, and long for deeper intimacy with God and each other. Couples who attended the Sacred Marriage Weekend last year left feeling closer to their spouse than ever before and grateful for the time to get away and grow together.

Also coming in 2009 is A Weekend with Tony Campolo, February 13-15, 2009.

Tony Campolo, honorary chairman of REACH Ministries, is founder and president of The Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education (EAPE), an organization dedicated to global social justice. Through EAPE, Tony has worked to create, nurture, and support programs for “at-risk” youth in cities across the country, and has helped establish schools and social programs in several developing countries.

Named by Christianity Today as one of the most influential preachers of the last 50 years, Tony is unafraid to touch on “hot-button” political and social topics. Tony is a well-known media commentator on religious, social, and political matters, and has made appearances on several television programs like Larry King Live, The Colbert Report, and Crossfire. He is also the author of 35 books, including his most recent, Red Letter Christians, A Citizens Guide to Faith and Politics.

Undeniably, this weekend will not only challenge your views of the world, but also inspire you to discover the difference God intends for you to make on His behalf. Don’t miss this opportunity to be challenged and inspired by Tony Campolo.

Hold on Tight!

Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
