Update on funding for Cedar Lodge

WBC has been awarded a $490,000 completion grant for this effort. To claim this grant, we need to have the rest of the funding identified through cash, pledges and gifts in kind. We have been asking the WBC community to make a special commitment to underwrite the remaining funding, to be paid over the next four years. We need all commitments identified by early December to claim the completion grant.

We have gone from needing $590,000 down to $38,000 to complete the funding. The need is compelling, the challenge daunting, but the opportunity is great. Please consider making a four-year commitment to completing the funding for the Cedar Lodge project.

For more information email the Development Department, or call at 360-652-7575, Seattle 425-743-5471, in state toll-free 800-228-6724.

Cedar Lodge is the building that serves as the center of our hospitality for gathering, food and fellowship. As WBC is growing in serving people with special needs, specialized diets, and disabilities it is essential to complete three phases of upgrades:

  • establish ADA restrooms on the main floor of Cedar Lodge,
  • expand the kitchen to meet the dietary needs of people today,
  • improve the meeting room in Cedar lodge to better serve the variety of meeting formats required today.

Exploring your worth in Christ

“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hands and says to you, ‘do not fear, I will help you.'" Isaiah 41:13 What I do defines who I am. The choices I make define my value – for better or for worse. Are those things true? There are countless times in my life where I believed that what I did defined who I am.

A Heartwarming and Joyous Plan!

When a woman from a senior community quilter’s group came to Warm Beach Camp, she was not expecting to have a bond with a group of students attending a high school retreat.
