Worship Services are live-streamed on Facebook Live then posted on YouTube.
Sunday Worship is at 9:00 a.m.
Sunday School is at 10:30 a.m.
As part of our VBS program, the children, their families, and VBS staff share God’s Love with people in need through the collection of an offering for the VBS Mission Project. This year’s Mission Project partnered with Interfaith Community Outreach’s Cancer Outreach program, raising $1000 for this local organization. Through ICO’s Outreach program, cancer patients and their families receive financial assistance to use for paying bills, as well as travel reimbursement for their doctor visits. Thank you for your support!
Altar Flowers:
Two People Can Sign Up Each Week
Two arrangements can be placed on the altar, so two people/families can sign up for each Sunday.
You can choose a date on the Flower Chart in the back of the church and write your name on the line next to that date. Two people/families can sign up on each line. You can designate the flowers to be "In Honor of (a person's name)" or "In Memory of (a person's name)" or "In Memory of Loved Ones" or "With Thanksgiving to God for (an anniversary or a birthday or any special occasion)” or "To the Glory of God." Just write your designation next to your name.
The cost is $30 per arrangement and you can make a check payable to Grace Lutheran Church By-The-Sea and put it in an envelope marked "Flowers for (write the date you signed up for here)" and put it in the offering plate on Sunday morning. If you make specific requests for your arrangement, the cost is $50.
On the day that your flowers are on the altar, when the service is over, you can take the flowers (not the container or the oasis) home to enjoy them! Stay tuned for possible updates on the container protocol.
Grace is thankful to Nags Head Florist for arranging the altar flowers each week.
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...
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.

The Epistle reading is from Ephesians 3:14-21.
The Holy Gospel is from Mark 6:45-56.

The Sermon Text is from Mark 6:45-56.
45 Immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He dismissed the crowd. 46 And after He had taken leave of them, He went up on the mountain to pray. 47 And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and He was alone on the land. 48 And He saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw Him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, 50 for they all saw Him and were terrified. But immediately He spoke to them and said, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” 51 And He got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52 for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. 53 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored to the shore. 54 And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately recognized Him 55 and ran about the whole region and began to bring the sick people on their beds to wherever they heard He was. 56 And wherever He came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored Him that they might touch even the fringe of His garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
