Thanks everyone. This is where we stand to hopefully help others in the future:
Oven hasn't been used in a very long time if ever.
The pilot light would not light due to a small dead spider in the orifice. Once that was removed it lit.
The pilot had a high and low flame as we adjusted the thermostat, but the main bar wouldn't light.
Low gas pressure. With the help of a lighter and the pilot, the main bar lit.
Unfortunately when the stove needed to reduce the flame everything would go out including the pilot.
This has led us to a sticking regulator. Hubby is off to buy a new one tonight. Hopefully we will be making cookies Friday night!!
