PLEASE NOTE the following important details to ensure we gather safely and enjoy an uplifting time of worship together…

Social Distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines will be practiced. Please plan to maintain at least 6 feet between family groups.

Masks will be encouraged (but not required) and available on request. Masks should be worn any time during your visit where maintaining appropriate social distancing is difficult or impossible.

Entry and parking will be on the Asbury Avenue side of the grounds. Please follow the directions of parking signs and/or attendants as you enter.

Please bring your own chair(s) if possible. Folding chairs will be available. Seating will be on the 6th Street side of the grounds, facing the Tabernacle building. You  may bring a beach umbrella or small canopy for shade but may be asked to sit farther from the stage to prevent obstructing the view of others.

There will be no children’s programs or child care provided. Access to the ARK Pre-School Nursery will be available on request for parents who need to feed, change, or otherwise care for small children.

For your comfort and convenience…

Dating back to Ocean City’s earliest beginnings, the mission of the Ocean City Tabernacle has been to serve, support, inspire, strengthen and connect members of the community. As the needs of area residents and visitors have grown, the Tabernacle has grown to meet them with meaningful family-focused programs and uplifting, non-denominational worship services where everyone is made to feel welcome and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is central.
