IMPORTANT ---- Friday at 12 noon August 3
Dear Friends of Merritt Camp
Our oldest member (age 95) who was one of the leaders of Grace by the Sea’s former Tuesday Church team starting when the bowling Alley first opened)
For a long time I wanted to bring him from Spring Arbor to the bowling Alley, to watch us of course, but also for fellowship.
I hope being at the bowling alley will give others an easier opportunity of connecting with him rather that at the many activities and long hallways of Spring Arbor 
So, This Friday at 12 noon August 3, if you have not had a chance to see Merritt at Spring Arbor…swing by OBX Bowling where he will be inside, sitting at a table overlooking the bowling lanes

 
PS: If it’s lunch time for you, you might purchase a little lunch too and even sit with him for 5 or ten minutes.   Of course, If you can bowl, please join us on the alley for a game or two or three!!!

 
Blessings in Christ our Lord,
EP-al
ONLY 2 MORE SUNDAYS!!!
BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT – 2018
This year we are helping to support those children in need of supplies at the Manteo Middle School. We have been in contact with Ms. Keri Simmons, Guidance Counselor, and she is excited for our contributions since supplies are desperately needed all year. Since the needs of the middle school children are very different than those for the elementary children, here is a list of the supplies that are required for middle school kids:

 
We will collect supplies up until August 12th, and will deliver them to Manteo Middle School on Friday, August 17th. Please leave your supplies at the back of the church each Sunday.

 
For those of you who would rather donate money to the project, please make your check payable to Grace Lutheran Church, BUT PUT A NOTE ON IT THAT IT IS FOR THE BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT. 

 
Ms. Simmons and her staff send a warm and grateful “thank you” to everyone for your generous contributions.

 
Thank you.

LADIES LUNCHEON UPDATE
August 14th at 11:30 at Darrell's II
Hi Ladies:

 
Today sure was fun at Plaza Azteca, wasn't it? It's always a joy getting together and enjoying a lunch with one another. We had a total of 12 but can always add more.

 
For those of you who couldn't make it, above is the Back to School Project list again. We only have this coming Sunday, and the following Sunday, to collect items for the Manteo Middle School. Please leave your supplies at the back of the church and Gary and I will take everything to the school on Friday, August 17th. Thank you for your generous donations!

 
Our next luncheon will be on August 14th at 11:30 at Darrell's II. That is the restaurant located in the shopping center where the Fresh Market is located at. Please think about some of the restaurants you would like to go to in the future, and we will plan our next luncheons through the month of December.

 
I hope all of you have a WONDERFUL remaining week and we'll see one another again this Sunday in church.

 
Blessings to you all,
Cher 😊❤

Cards for Emily
The following prayer request was sent today and if you would like to send a card of support the address is below:
From Harold Gracey........
 
"The following note is from my college fraternity brother, Al for whose daughter Emily we have been praying. It is an answer to the prayers of many including the Grace prayer warriors. Please continue to pray for Emily, as well as Al and Ginny, her parents. Their 30 year old daughter, Emily, who has been suffering with anorexia for more than half of her life. In spite of years of physical and mental health care of all varieties for almost that entire time, she has now reached a stage where her body will not process even intravenous nutrition and she had entered hospice care. She weighs 49 pounds.  

 
"After some tremendous work by Emily's therapist over the past several weeks, and her own sense of illness, Emily decided on Wednesday night to be admitted to the Johns Hopkins Eating Disorder program. After being admitted through the Emergency Room, she was transferred to the program Thursday morning. Her medical condition was critical and we are grateful that Emily realized this was the only option to save her.
 
This program will spend the next several weeks refeeding her in a way that will hopefully stabilize her and remove her from her critical condition. She will then remain in the program for an indeterminate length of time until a healthy weight can be regained. Already, Emily has been having second thoughts about her decision but Hopkins will not release her. Her anger and frustration at not being able to return home is understandable but the result of her eating disorder taking control. Meanwhile, we are under considerable pressure from Emily to push for her release but, as an adult now in a medical setting, her leaving is up to Hopkins. 
 
She realistically needs encouragement from everyone that she made the right decision and that she needs to be patient and let the refeeding process take its time. With proper nourishment, her mental and physical state will begin to improve”."
 
Ms. Emily Barry c/o Johns Hopkins Eating Disorder Program

   600 N. Wolfe Street
   Baltimore, MD 21287

 
Thank you for your continued prayers.
 
"Fear not I am with you, O be not dismayed, For I am Your God and will still give you aid;I'll strengthen you, help you and cause you to stand, Upheld by My Righteous Omnipotent Hand."
Volunteers Needed 
Oh my, I've volunteered, now what am I expected to do!!!

 
What to help out in the church but not sure if help is needed, who to contact or what you would do? That's the point of this box. If there is something that you are interested in, please let me know and I will follow up with the person in charge and put as much information as possible to help you make a decision. We all need people to volunteer! Contact me at obxcthompson@yahoo.com. Thank you.
Psalm 145:1-21 14 The Lord upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. 15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. 16 You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing. 17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works. 18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them. 20 The Lord preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. 21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
