“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.

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.
