“Come and Get It!

joann_walston250“Come and get it!” Those words may not be heard out loud, but the Volunteer Dining Room Host knows that all the volunteers during The Lights of Christmas will make their way to the Volunteer Dining Room for supper each night. And JoAnn Walston is waiting for them.

For many years, JoAnn has been one of the faithful volunteers that have “manned” this post. From making sure there’s plenty of food, to cleaning up someone else’s mess, to smiling and greeting each volunteer as they arrive, JoAnn has helped make this position one of grace and love shown in service to the Lord.

“It is such a joy to be able to help these people who come in cold and needing something to eat,” JoAnn states, with a smile in her voice. “I just want to warm them up!”

JoAnn is just one of the 100 volunteers that are needed each night during the run of the event to help make The Lights of Christmas happen. From the Parking team and the Greeters out front to the person who helps get the Victorian Carolers into costume or hosts in the Volunteer Dining Room, there is a job that is just right for you.

For a complete listing of volunteer positions and to sign up, go to Volunteer.WarmBeachLights.com or call Jessica Beach at the Camp a 1-800-228-6724 ext. 2276.

She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
