Sounds like a classic failure of the gas coils. They work when cold but quit when they warm up a little bit.

Coils replaced and all appears to be working well! Thanks so much to everyone for the help and parts links. The appliancepartspros part was $15 and the partsselect.com parts were $75...for the same thing! Crazy.
