A few yards from the pounding Atlantic Ocean on the North Carolina Outer Banks is an Episcopal church that has provided a refuge from stormy weather for nearly 100 years. St. Andrew's By-The-Sea is a safe harbor from both natural tempests and the whirlwinds and rough waters that too often characterize modern life. It is a place of peace and contemplation, where the people of the Outer Banks — resident and visitor alike — are invited to find fellowship and to seek and explore the mystery of God through the teachings of His Son, Jesus Christ.
