A Maryland-based Christian fellowship will be hosting its 21st annual “Jesus at the Beach,” multi-day event centered on worship, music, prayer, ministry and baptism on the beach in Ocean City staring on Monday.

“Basically, we gather in the Ocean City Convention Center Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 10 a.m. for praise, worship, drama, prayer, and Holy Spirit ministry,” said Gary Steger, a leader at Son’Spot and one of the organizers for Jesus at the Beach, to The Christian Post.

“And Each night on the beach at North Division Street we gather from 7 to 10 p.m. for praise music, drama, and testimonies. On Wednesday, following the morning meeting, we will baptize people in the ocean, across from the convention center.”

Steger also told CP that the theme for this year’s Jesus at the Beach will be John 12:32, which reads: “When I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”

“That is our purpose of everything we do, to lift up the name of Jesus,” said Steger. “It is the same ministry we have done at The Son’Spot since 1981.

“At The Son’Spot we have one visiting group helping us with ministry and with the festival. It’s like a family reunion of the Son’Spot Christian family and we have several ministry teams helping us.”

The annual summer event has been known to feature baptisms on the beach as well as music within sight of the coastline.

“Thousands come and go and pass by on the boardwalk. Usually a couple hundred inside the convention center or on the beach at one time,” said Steger to CP.

“We can’t fit into the Son’Spot facility, so we use the convention center. We also enjoy the outreach opportunity of ministering outside on the beach in the evenings.”
