CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT TO SPEAK THE TRUTH
Beachmont Christian Ministries exists to proclaim the good news that Jesus Christ came into the world to give spiritual life to all those who believe in Him. We seek to create environments to speak the Truth and provide a Christian atmosphere in which people of all ages can enjoy wholesome activities and enrich their lives emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
“Where there is God’s vision, there will be God’s provision.”
In 1973, when God brought Paul and Maureen Twining into Mrs. Aimee Foard’s life, He answered her prayer concerning the future of the farm she and her late husband had operated for years. The Twinings were involved in youth ministry and believed God was leading them to develop a Christian camp. Mrs. Foard had been praying that God would send someone to her farm to run just such a ministry. Upon discovering that God had placed a similar vision in each of their hearts, she donated a portion of the Beachmont farm for the purpose of spreading the life-changing message of the Bible. Now, more than 40 years later, Beachmont is a thriving ministry that reaches hundreds of families each year with the Word of God.
Summer Day Camp for children ages 4-13 is one of the most fun and affordable camps in the state! Each summer over 1,600 children have a great time while they learn about the love of Jesus Christ in a camp environment. We have beautiful fields for games, and a wooded area and stream that are always fun to explore. In our pool, campers learn to swim – and stay cool on hot summer days. Other big hits for campers are our spring-fed pond and rope swing, our gaga pit, and low ropes course.
An Environment for Teens
Tuesday evenings during the summer, teenagers from all around Maryland gather at Beachmont to experience the good news of Jesus Christ through fellowship, worship, and the preaching of God’s Word. Beachmont provides a place where youth can gather for fun and fellowship, come to know and fall in love with Jesus as their Savior, and grow in their walk with God.
An Environment for Home Schoolers
Beachmont PE is designed to expose students educated at home (pre-K to 8th grade) to a variety of skills through activities, sports, and fitness exercises. This 10-week program is designed so that students will participate in 6-8 units, created for the appropriate grade level. Younger students learn motor, throwing, catching, and kicking skills through games, while older students learn basic skills, rules, and strategies of a sport or proper technique for fitness exercises. Students also learn cooperation, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
An Environment for Families
On Friday nights in the summer Beachmont is open to the public from 5-10 p.m. and we invite you to bring your family and friends to enjoy our facilities and activities! We have a great facility where you can play games with your children, take a hike in the woods, or cool off in the pool ($3 per person). We also have a pavilion where you can picnic, have a birthday party, or get something from our concessions stand.
The Beachmont Corn Maze is fun for the whole family! Join your favorite Starr Warz characters for an adventure in our 6-acre interactive corn maze with more than 2 miles of pathways. Come during the day, or join us for an adventure in the dark – Friday and Saturday nights are “Flashlight Nights” – with celebrations around a blazing bonfire! Afraid you might get lost? Maze Masters are stationed along the pathways to quickly help you back on track, or take you to the nearest exit. Concessions are open and pumpkins are for sale!
An Environment for Prayer, Study, and Service
The Billy Graham Telephone Counseling Ministry at Beachmont began in September, 2006 and meets once a month during the TBN Billy Graham Classics TV telecast. If you’re interested in helping with the Billy Graham Telephone Counseling Ministry, please call Beachmont.
Prayer Ministry – “The harvest is plentiful…Therefore pray earnestly.” (Luke 10:2)
We have been aware since the beginning of this ministry that prayer has upheld it, and now more than ever we believe God is calling the Christian community together to pray for a spiritual awakening. We need Christians who understand the value and power of prayer and are willing to dedicate time to engage in intercessory prayer for the entire Beachmont family and the ministries that serve them. We invite those with a heart for intercessory prayer to become part of this ministry team – to pray for our summer camp, our family nights, the corn maze, and the multitude of other offerings at Beachmont. We gather often at Beachmont to lift our voices in praise and prayer, as we did in May 2015 on the National Day of Prayer. Join us as we lift our voices in prayer that God would have mercy on our children and us by birthing a spiritual awakening in our community and in our country.
During the fall and spring, we offer Bible study on Tuesday nights for middle, high, and college age students. All are welcome to join us for a time of fellowship, reading God’s word, and prayer. This ministry provide an environment in which students learn how to read, understand, study, and apply God’s Word so that they can grow closer to God.
