A Thank You Note to the Grace Blanket Ministry from a Blanket and Hat Recipient:
"My husband and I wanted to thank the kind people from your church who knitted blankets for the newborns at the Outer Banks Hospital. Our son was born on 4-21 and we brought him home and kept him warm with one of the blankets given to the hospital by your church. Even today now that the weather has cooled some he still stays nice and cozy in the matching hat and blanket set.
We just wanted to make sure whoever made this blanket and hat knew how much their effort was appreciated. Thank you very much!"

Lou and I want to let everyone know how much we appreciate the cards, prayers and donations lifted up in Donnie's memory. We will miss our Grace family as we move to Florida and will always keep a special place in our hearts for Grace Lutheran By The Sea! We have been so blessed to have been a part of Grace! Wishing God's blessings to all members of Grace!

In Christian love,
Chris and Lou Petzing
VBS Is Coming Soon! June 28 - July 2, 2021

Men's Breakfast Group

The Men’s Breakfast Group plans to meet on the third Saturday of every month.
The next scheduled meeting is on June 19th, at 8:30 A.M.

There's room at the table for you!
This year's daily devotions are leading all of us to read through the entire Bible. To read through the Bible in 365 days you need to read about three and a quarter chapters or about eighty-five verses a day. I am listing the day's reading then writing a devotion on part or all of the reading. If you join in reading, you will read through the Bible in a year and be highly blessed.
Pastor Jones
Today's Devotions are sent out every day. If you haven't started already, you can start reading now! It's never too late to begin reading through the Bible together...
If you know someone who would like to receive emails from Grace, click the "Sign up" line, underlined below, and have them fill out the short form. Or you can copy the underlined "Sign up" line and paste it into an email and send it to them so that they can click on it, fill it out and submit it.
Submitting the form will directly sign them up to an "Active" account and they will start receiving emails with the very next email that is sent.
Readings for Sunday, June 13, 2021

The Old Testament reading is from Ezekiel 17:22-24.
The Psalm reading is Psalm 1:1-6.
The Epistle reading is from 2 Corinthians 5:1-10.
The Holy Gospel is from Mark 4:26-34.

The Sermon Text is from Psalm 1:1-6.

1 Blessed is the man
  who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
  nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
  and on His law he meditates day and night
3 He is like a tree
  planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
  and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
  but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
  nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
  but the way of the wicked will perish.
