We’ll leave the light on for ya!

Volunteers Graves 260Every organization has to budget for “keeping the lights on.” At Warm Beach Camp that cost just got a whole lot cheaper thanks to a grant from our electrical service provider, Snohomish Co. PUD, and some really hard working volunteers.

Several months ago, WBC received a grant from the PUD that paid for 85% of a $15,000 lighting upgrade project that will drastically improve the efficiency of the lighting in Cedar Lodge. After the ballasts and bulbs have been replaced, the Camp will save over $3,000 a year in energy costs.

Not only this, but all the lights are being replaced by three wonderful volunteers, Bob, Evie, and Rob Graves. Bob and Evie are members of an RVing volunteer organization called Hardhats for Christ. They have pulled their rig onto the grounds of WBC for the next several weeks to take on this huge project for the Camp.

Bob is a retired electrician who worked for 49 years in the trade. Rob, their son, who has joined them for the project, also works as an electrician. Together, the family agrees that they like to do volunteer work because they “love the Lord” and see their work as “a tithe of time and ability.”

Warm Beach Camp would like to thank the Graves family for their time and effort on this project. The outcomes will be long lasting. We praise the Lord daily for volunteers like you.

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 ...
