There are many ministries in action on any given day throughout the year here at The Son’Spot. The first and primary focus is centered on outreach to the nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There are millions of people who travel to Ocean City each year and many activities are hosted, all of which are designed to bring Good News to people who cross our path.
The summer ministry includes daily opportunities to preach the Truth of Jesus through one-on-one conversations, carrying the cross down the boardwalk, ministering at the sand sculptures on Second Street, and passing out Bibles and tracts. Here at the facility hundreds of people of all ages walk by every day. Some stop and listen to the Jesus Movie which plays 24 hours a day in one of our windows; others pick up Bibles, attend a meeting, or pick up food. The food ministry also reaches those who come regularly to receive the Word, prayer, and meals. Several visitors may receive prayer, salvation, or rededicate their lives to Jesus.
Each of the gatherings is informal and we welcome everyone to stop by and visit throughout the schedule of these events on any given day. Whether you find us up on the boardwalk carrying the cross or whether we are ministering to people at the sand sculptures on Second Street, our desire is to be in action for the work of Lord.
Open Every Day 8 pm to 11 pm
Closed on Wednesdays
Doors are open at 6 am for prayer. At 10 am we gather for prayer, Word and morning outreach. At 5 pm we gather for prayer and afternoon outreach. Each night the doors are opened from 8 pm to 11 pm (7 pm in the winter). This includes a ministry time in the Word, praise, worship, music, prayer, fellowship, and more. You are always welcome to just drop by for a cup of coffee on your way up to the boardwalk. Often you will find many children running around so feel free to bring the kids along too!
The Son‘Spot also hosts an evangelistic free dinner meal on Thursday nights 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm. A plate of food can be prepared for those who are on the go or one can stay the entire time, as many do, to visit and catch up with friends.
During the summer months breakfast meals are added to the schedule. These meals are served on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 a.m. 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 people 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. Recordings of praise and worship music, sung in both English and Russian, the most commonly understood language of a majority of these international students, are played over the sound system during the meals. As the Spirit leads, on-stage public messages are also given in English and Russian, sometimes with an interpreter. One-on-one language interpretations at the tables may also occur during the public sharing of the Word. 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 Him and often respond favorably to this message.
