Ocean City, Maryland, situated along a nine-mile stretch of Atlantic Ocean beach­front, will be the Northeast region’s festival location again in 2016. For the last century, this family-oriented oceanfront resort located on the Delmarva Peninsula has been a favorite vacation destination for families from Phil­adelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., all of which are within a three-hour drive.

Ocean City abounds in dining and shopping opportunities, as well as family attractions and areas of natural beauty. Nearby is the Ocean City Boardwalk, home to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum, amusement rides, a fishing pier and several restaurants. There are several go-kart tracks and mini-golf courses in the area. At nearby Assateague Island National Seashore, wild horses can be seen up close, roaming free on the beach and along the nature trails of this undevel­oped barrier island. A short drive from Ocean City is the historic town of Berlin, home to several specialty shops, antique shops and restaurants.

Services will be held at the Carousel Oceanfront Hotel and Condominiums. The facility has ample on-site housing to accom­modate everyone and features numerous amenities, including a year-round indoor ice-skating rink, indoor and outdoor pools, oceanfront sundeck, game room and free use of tennis courts and fitness facility. The accommodations include hotel rooms as well as two and three-bedroom oceanfront condominiums, all with free Wi-Fi and free parking.

Members are expected to stay at one of the housing properties listed below. Both properties are owned by the Carousel Resort, so all amenities at the Carousel are available to those staying at either of these properties. By renting enough rooms at these properties, the Church will have all meeting space charges waived, and will thus save thousands of dollars.

Expect afternoon high temperatures to average around 65 degrees, with nighttime lows near 50. Travelers can fly into Salisbury-Ocean City Regional Airport (SBY), just 30 minutes away.

Location of Services: Carousel Ocean­front Hotel and Condominiums, 11700 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, MD 21842.
