Welcome to Grace Baptist Church of Seaford
Thanks for stopping by. Please take a look through the website to learn all about the excitement happening at Grace Baptist Church of Seaford! Especially note the weekly messages by Pastor Homer using Sermons tab at the top of this page.
- Grace chose to cancel all services 2/15/15 because of the severe weather. We had single digit actual temperatures with wind gusts up to 50 MPH. With our sanctuary on the NorthWest corner of our lot with much open area across from it, the heating system was only able to hold the temperature at 60 degrees.
- Grace is working with Love INC of Mid-Delmarva which provides warm shelter for the homeless during dangerously cold weather. To help raise funds for this project called Code Purple), there will be an auction Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015 from 7:00 -9:00 p.m. at the Atlanta Road Alliance Church. If you have any items to donate, take them to the Atlanta Road Church, 22625 Atlanta Road, Seaford. You can also take baked goods for the bake sale. Call first to make sure there will be someone there to receive the items and baked goods (302-629-5600)
- We have signed a covenant with Rev. Tom Stolle to serve as our interim pastor and help us find God's will for what direction/changes He would have us make to better serve Him in this community and wherever He would have us reach. To do this, Pastor Tom will be preaching on Sunday mornings and meeting with us in our Wednesday prayer meetings and with church leaders as appropriate to help in this matter. His message to us on 12/28/14 (and others as time goes by) can be found above, under messages.
- On Thursday, December 4, long time Grace member, Kitty Medford left us for her well earned heavenly reward. She blessed and encouraged so many people in her lifetime as she went about doing God's work. Her memorial service will be at Grace on Wednesday, Dec 10 starting with family meeting time from noon 'til 2:00 when the service will start. After her burial in Blades cemetery, a meal will be served for attendees.
On Sunday 11/23 we, at Grace, were blessed by viewing the video, HEAVEN, from the Billy Graham association. You can find out more about this video and how you can find assurance of heaven as your final residence by going to the web site MyHopeWithBillyGraham.org.
The King's Ambassadors from Mayland presented a concert of Southern Gospel style music at Grace on Sunday 9/14 at 6:30. Picture below.
In reference to the note below, Pastor Homer gave his final sermon at Grace on Sunday 8/24. Pray for God's guidance for Grace, especially the team that is meeting specifically to seek what to present to the membership for approval to take action.
The good news from 8/24 was that Pastor baptised two new members into God's Kingdom and our church, plus another joined having already been baptised.
On Sunday 7/20, our beloved pastor Homer McKeithan announced that he would be leaving Grace at the end of this calendar year with regret, but great memories. He asked his congregation to pray for him and wife Deenie as they sought God's will for their future.
