See & read about what is going on in the Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center community

This is God’s Place

God chose Warm Beach Camp to be the home of The Lights of Christmas! He chose the people to start this amazing experience to share the true message of Christmas. He fills the staff with His love and joy so that it pours out of us to the community to soften hearts and bring change. The world is a dark place, and the last couple of years have been difficult! But no matter what, when you drive through The Lights of Christmas, God’s love and joy are found in abundance. You can forget for a time about the worry and stress of life and fully be immersed in His joy and light!

When I was a kid, my mom brought me to The Lights of Christmas every year and I remember telling her “This is a special place!” She replied, “This is God’s place.” I smiled and just moved on looking at all the wonderful light displays. As I got older, I realized that she was right – this IS God’s place and God is at work here. Many nights over the years I have seen families come in stressed and frustrated about something, but then I would see those same families leave the event with full hearts and smiles on their faces. It was God working through the event to love on those families. This year I hope that no matter what is going on, you will find joy here, at The Lights of Christmas, and remember you are loved and cherished by God.

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 ...
