Praise the Lord and greetings in Jesus name! It is a blessing to be in God’s presence daily and witness His love and life changing power. Most days in the summer we are on the boardwalk for ministry from The Son’Spot building on Worcester Street to the Sand Sculpture on Second Street, with carrying a cross, distributing tracts, praying with people, singing, and other ministry. Also during the summer we meet daily at The Son’Spot at 10am and 8pm for worship, Bible, prayer, fellowship, and ministry. Our purpose is to lift up the name of Jesus and to tell people that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. This plan begins by accepting Jesus into your life. Additionally, the food outreach ministry includes a free carry out dinner to the needy on Thursdays year round, and delivering food bags to homes on Mondays.
The same Spirit-led ministry that the Lord does everyday at The Son’Spot is what He does during the Jesus At The Beach Music & Ministry Festival. The only difference is instead of one ministry team, during the festival there are several ministry teams. To accommodate more people we will gather inside the Convention Center during the day in Room 217, the rows of chairs will be six feet apart, and face masks will be required. And for outreach ministry we gather on the beach at night and groups will sit six feet apart. Last year God used many people to minister through music, song, preaching, prayer, witnessing, sand sculpture, dramas, dance, and fellowship. God is so good. It was awesome to watch the Lord minister to so many of the thousands on the boardwalk. Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to lift up the name of Jesus in Ocean City. And thank you, Lord, for the privilege of being your vessel.
Good News Reports From Last Year’s Jesus At The Beach Festival
“We were so blessed with our visit to Ocean City and being able to come to Jesus At The Beach again this year. It’s such a joyful and refreshing time in the Lord and one that we look forward to each summer. The music and the Word and the testimonies were the exact message needed at this time. Only heaven will reveal the impact and blessing this ministry has had on the lives of people – even those who perhaps just listened for a brief time from the boardwalk. God bless everyone who came and received or gave of themselves. We loved it!! God bless you. You guys are an inspiration to the body of Christ!! “
“I wanted to share about the Lord releasing me from fear. A gentleman spoke about how people can allow fear to come into our lives. He shared that fear came into his life to the point that he would wake up hyperventilating. The Lord took away the fear that gripped his life. There was an alter call and I felt God urging me to go up for prayer. God showed me that I let fear come into my life at different times and I had not totally let go of fear. The Lord touched my life and delivered me from fear! I give Him the glory! There was a portion of Psalm 34 that was shared in the service. One of the scriptures I have as a memory scripture is Psalm 34:4, ‘I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears..”
“It is always a privilege to work with you guys at Jesus At The Beach. I always look forward to coming here. This year I can finally say that I was used to lead a person to salvation by sharing the Gospel at the boardwalk. After some years of outreaching work, I finally have the experience of doing the prayer of repentance with someone. God has a plan for me. I love you all.” “My first time here was great but this visit was the one that impacted me the most. I am definitely going to be here next year. I love you and God bless you. May God continue to make His Word flow through you into others.”
“I really enjoyed being in Ocean City this year and honestly wish it could last longer. It was such a blessing and I loved being able to see the Holy Spirit moving in and through so many different people as we all came together for this wonderful ministry. It really touched me. I loved the variety of people and the diversity. And I loved knowing that we are all so different, but we are all here for one purpose; to praise God. I definitely learned some very valuable things.”
“When I received the invite to go to Ocean City to work with Son’Spot Ministries I wasn’t sure how to feel. I had never gone out in the mission field before and felt a little intimidated. I am so glad I came. The work being done here, the outreach, is so very needed. I learned so much about the needs of the community and just about how to love on someone. I haven’t handed out tracts in quite some years and it was refreshing to see that it still gets done. There are people out there hungry for the Word of God and I believe Son’Spot Ministries is going in the right direction and making a huge impact. I was heavily impacted by the experience. I was praying for confirmation about what the Lord had planned for me. I received that confirmation here. God is working here, and the Spirit is freely moving. I was encouraged, blessed, and ministered to here. I enjoyed the people, and atmosphere, and pray that everyone who has a gift or talent does not bury it , but that it be multiplied. (Read Matthew 25:14-30) I pray that God continues to bless the ministry in Jesus’ name!”
“I love and learned from you. I also want to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I make it my priority to read Proverbs every month. My daily dose. The Lord spoke in reminding us of all of God’s promises. We shall not fear!”
We praise and thank the Lord for all the ministry He accomplished during the festival.

For more information, to listen to recordings from last year, or to see pictures of prior festivals, please visit our web page at JesusAtTheBeach.org .
Although all the ministry teams are volunteer, funds are needed for the Convention Center and beach stage rental, sound equipment, security, and other related expenses.

There is no charge to participate at any of these ministry events.
We have enclosed two fliers, one for you and one to display at your church fellowship.

Bring a beach chair or blanket to sit on at the beach. Thank you very much, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
