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.

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 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 ...
