The best gift of all

NativityandFamily web858There is lots of activity going on around the grounds at Warm Beach Camp as we get everything ready for The Lights of Christmas that opens on December 3 for the 2015 season. It takes lots of people to get everything put together for The Lights. Why do we make all this effort for an event that lasts just 19 nights?

It is because this event touches a lot of people. This lavish celebration of the amazing love that God gave us through the gift of the Christ Child brings the real meaning of Christmas into central focus.

I hope you will be able to come to The Lights this year! There are some new features I think you will enjoy seeing, like the new 18-foot-long Barkentine ship lighted with thousands of lights, a brand new play in Dinner Theatre by author, Victoria Ritchey entitled, “The Christmas Changeup,” and lots more! There is something that will cheer the heart and brighten the spirit of everyone who comes.

I encourage you to share The Lights with your family and friends as an opportunity to share the message of Christmas with those who have not yet received God’s gift in their life. You will find moments when it is just natural to share your faith. Many people tell us there is a special feeling when they are at The Lights. Share this feeling with those you love. Share the ministry of The Lights of Christmas this year.

After all, this just might be the best gift of all that you give this Christmas season.

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. 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 ...
