Prepare with Scripture Reading for This Coming Sunday
Nehemiah 8:1–3, 5–6, 8–10
Psalm 19
1 Corinthians 12:12–31a
Luke 4:16–30 16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”  
We will have a moment of silence to pray about “Why Are The Scriptures important?"     
     Here are some prayer thoughts 
  1. The world tells us there are many sources to know God, is that true Lord? 
  2. Where do we learn right from wrong if not from God?  
  3. What is the source for learning of Jesus? 
What's Happening This Month at Grace

Serving This Month

Greetings and Peace be with You, 

We are writing to ask for your prayers. Recently Pastor Roga Compean from a local Hispanic speaking congregation, formerly associated with the Ark Church, reached out to Pastor Jones looking for a new home for his congregation. Pastor Compean’s congregation would remain separate from our congregation and use the building at separate times.  
Pastor Jones met with Pastor Roga and reviewed his scriptural foundation. The Council and Elders met Pastor Roga and his family for a question and answer session after church two Sunday’s ago. Council and Elders believe the Lord is giving Grace an opportunity to support another one of His missions; however, we need to do our research and due diligence before we can present the congregation with the details. We will be working on the details over the next few weeks in preparation for a special voters meeting on February 3rd.  
Please add your Council, Elders, and Pastor Roga’s congregation in your prayers so that we may discern the Lord’s will in potentially opening His building to this ministry.

In His Peace

Morning Bible Studies Opportunities Come Join Us
Tuesday Morning Bible Class Kitty Hawk 9:00 AM
We will have bible study at one of two homes in Kitty Hawk each week at 9AM-10AM. We are studying chapters 5 of the Gospel of Mark. We have slowed our reading down to ask questions of "then and now" as we try to imagine what the disciples experienced as Jesus was revealed before them as the Son of God.
Call or Text retired pastor Al Isler at 252-564-4427 if you would like to join our small group in Kitty Hawk. Ages 18 to 80+ have enjoyed our discussion and fellowship. EP-al's email is

Psalm 19 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat. The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart. The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether.  More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Declare me innocent from hidden faults. Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
