The Hope That Christmas Brings

Despite the COVID pandemic The Lights of Christmas presents: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” is shaping up to be one of the most successful Christmas seasons Warm Beach Camp has ever seen. Tickets are selling out, donuts are flying off the shelves, and the retail tent is running to keep up with the demand.

One Saturday night a volunteer named Ron was helping a guest at the end of the event. A man in his 60s pulled in and began asking Ron questions. He wanted to know about the Camp and why the Camp was putting on The Lights of Christmas.  Ron responded, “We wanted to give people hope!”

Upon hearing this the man wept.  He was the direct recipient of the hope we seek to communicate.

The numbers of cars pulling through the event are great! What is even better is the joy on the faces of children hanging their heads out of the car windows. Or, the families singing along to Christmas carols. Most importantly, the hope of Jesus Christ being spread to all who attend The Lights of Christmas presents: “A Drive-Thru Christmas.”

We look forward to continue to serve the community at The Lights of Christmas throughout the remainder of the season.

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 ...
