In the summer we gather every day (except Wednesday) at 10 am for sharing the Word and prayer, then complete work projects, and at 5 pm go on the boardwalk for outreach ministry. We gather again at 8 pm for praise, worship, Word, prayer, fellowship, & ministry. Additionally, the food ministry includes dinner on Thursdays at 5:30 pm in Summer, and breakfast on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 am. We also deliver food bags and minister to people in their homes each week.
Each morning hundreds of people come in for breakfast. The largest amounts of visitors who come are international students, here to work in Ocean City for the summer. The Lord draws them in and provides an atmosphere to receive the truths of His Word. We are given opportunities to just talk with the students and other visitors and get to know them. Often times we pray with several of them and ask God to meet their everyday needs and do miracles in their lives. Additionally, the Gospel is shared with persons one-on-one and from up front to the entire group. Scripture is read and explained to these precious young persons and personal testimonies are shared with them.
Many international students return at a later time to say that God did indeed meet their needs. And although these summer visitors initially come to eat, they are introduced to new life in Jesus and often respond favorably to this message. The reason for the food ministry is not to physically feed people, but to provide the opportunity to lift up the name of Jesus to our guests.
The boardwalk outreach includes carrying crosses and passing out scripture, sharing one-on-one, doing dramas, singing songs, praying for people, and helping dig the hole for the sand sculpture ministry.
The Lord has sent people to help serve & minister in all these areas. Our desire at every occasion is to lift up the name of Jesus (John 12:32) and for God to move and minister as He desires. Zechariah 4:6 says, “Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord”.
During the winter, we gather on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7pm, and Sunday mornings at 10am for ministry, Bible, worship, prayer, and fellowship. Additionally, there is an outreach dinner ministry on Thursdays at 5pm. We also delivery food bags and minister to people in their homes each week. Our desire is to lift up Jesus and to allow the Holy Spirit to manifest and minister as He desires. It is a wonderful thing to be in the presence of the Lord. To God be the glory for all that He has done.
