A great lineup for 2014

See Ya' Saturday!

Of course we are talking about the 18th annual “Blessing of the Inlet” celebration! As always, it is held the first Saturday of May, and this year is no exception!! Belin Memorial United Methodist Church is so excited to be hosting this event on Saturday, May 3, 2014, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. With over 70 arts and crafts vendors showcasing their wonderful handmade goods, a virtual treasure trove awaits you. Whether it is the beautiful paintings or handmade jewelry, there is something for everyone! Don’t forget about all the delicious food prepared by some of Murrells Inlet’s finest restaurants! Also, to tempt you, we have our incredible children’s events, which include face and hair painting, inflatables, climbing wall, and the ever popular “Dunking Tank” where they can take turns trying to “dunk” your friends.

There will also be a full day of outstanding entertainment featuring dance troops, gospel choirs, contemporary Christian musicians, and more. This festival is highlighted by the “Blessing of the Inlet” Ceremony that begins at 11:30 AM in front of Belin church (creek side). The blessing will be administered by the Reverend Dr. Mike Alexander and the Reverend Marty Nason. There is no admission or charge for parking, and the event will be held rain or shine. So come help us celebrate the Glory of God and all He has “blessed” us with! We are NOT associated with The Blessing of the Fleet. Due to Belin’s focus on the people and lives of Murrells Inlet and the surrounding South Strand, the “Blessing of the Inlet” does not include the blessing of animals. “See Ya’ Saturday” has developed into the “Blessing’s” official slogan. All of the Grand Strand and the surrounding areas will be saying very soon… “See Ya’ Saturday!!!”










Blessing of the Inlet is hosted by Belin Memorial United Methodist Church.
