first_imgOcean City Tabernacle offers the Son Club throughout the school year. By Maddy VitaleOcean City Tabernacle is offering an array of guest speakers during Sunday morning services beginning Memorial Day weekend. It also has a host of concerts planned for members and guests and there is something new – a Family Movie Night.Beginning this Friday, May 3, the Tabernacle is trying something that Pastor Jay Reimer hopes will be a tradition for families.“The O.C. Tabernacle planned this movie night for families in the Ocean City area to enjoy a night out with friends and simply to encourage family time together,” said Reimer, who is also the CEO of the Tabernacle.The movie night is free and open to the public and will feature giveaways, pizza, snacks, refreshments and a movie at 5:30 p.m. called “Facing The Giants.”Reimer said the Tabernacle welcomes people not just from the community, but anybody who wishes to attend, including people in town for the Ocean City Block Party, a huge event Saturday, May 4, featuring 350 crafters and a variety of food vendors.“We welcome anybody, including O.C. Block Party visitors, for a family-friendly night out together to watch a funny, inspiring movie about a school football team and the challenges they face on the field and in their homes,” Reimer noted.The director and star of the move, who plays the head coach, is Alex Kendrick.“He has been one of the many popular speakers at Ocean City Tabernacle during the weekly Sunday morning services that occur from Memorial Day weekend through early September each year,” Reimer said.He added that kicking off the exciting summer season will be the Family Movie Night.Reimer said he hopes it will be a great success.“This movie night is a test to see if it meets a need for families,” he explained. “If so, I plan to do it at least monthly in the fall, and perhaps weekly if many attend.”Some of the Sunday speakers include youth and family author Josh McDowell on May 26, author and Bible teacher Ellie Lofaro on June 9 and Hall of Fame football player and author Mike Singletary on July 14.In addition to movie night and the full lineup of guest speakers, there will be plenty of concerts performed by popular musicians on Sunday nights from July 7 through Aug. 18, Reimer said.Hymn-sings will begin 30 minutes prior to the concerts and offerings will be requested, rather than tickets sold for admission.On Sundays, there will be hymn-sings weekly, 15 minutes prior to both the traditional and contemporary services.The Tabernacle’s popular services at the Ocean City Music Pier will occur each Sunday from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.Vacation Bible School will be offered for four weeks spanning July and August, and there will be a weekly Tuesday morning Bible study for adults through the book of Revelation during July and August.For a full list of speakers and events, go to www.OCTabernacle.org and the OC Tabernacle Facebook and Instagram pages.
