Three-day event includes music, prayer, fellowship, praise and testimonials
(July 26, 2013) Jesus at the Beach Music and Ministry festival, a three-day event of music, praise and worship, along with a variety of other activities, is scheduled to begin Monday, July 29, in the resort.
“People come to enjoy the fellowship and make it part of their annual vacation,” said Gary Steger, co-organizer of the festival with Dick Sands. “It all just goes along with the family image and atmosphere of Ocean City.”
A prayer meeting at The Son’Spot Christian Fellowship Center, on Worcester Street in downtown Ocean City, is scheduled for Sunday at 7 p.m., the night before the festival kicks off.
Each day will begin with praise, worship, dance, drama, testimonials, preaching, prayer and fellowship from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., July 29-31, at the convention center on 40th Street.
Each day will conclude with praise, one-on-one counseling sessions, outreach ministry and musical, dance and drama groups on the beach at North Division Street from 7-10 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair.
Parking is available at the convention center and attendees are encouraged to ride the bus to North Division Street. The cost is $1 per trip or $3 for the entire day. Those parking at the convention center in the evening are asked to leave a Jesus at the Beach flyer on the car dashboard.
“It’s fun interacting with everyone and the baptism is always exciting to see a young person or adult being baptized for the first time, going into the water and coming up new,” said Steger.
A baptism service is scheduled to follow Wednesday morning’s activities at approximately 1 p.m. on the beach across from the convention center. Those who want to be baptized should attend the Wednesday morning meeting or meet at the beach around 1 p.m. Steger said approximately 20 people are baptized each year.
Participants also have the opportunity to meet for prayer 30 minutes prior to each event at the convention center and on the beach.
The evening activities will be relocated to the convention center in the event of rain.
