Divine Mercy Sunday!
This Sunday is a special feast day called the Divine Mercy Sunday. Divine Mercy points to the idea that God is merciful at all times and God is kind to us regardless of how we treat God. God will always come to our rescue no matter what we do, just like a father or mother. God's relationship with us is like that of parents to their children. Last day as I was reading Fr. Richard Rohr, he said, "God doesn't have grandchildren, only children, daughters, and sons." That was one of the best lines I have heard of God's relationship with humanity.
Fathers and mothers help their children become successful and happy, while they might simply spoil their grandchildren. I have heard many times grandparents say it is wonderful to have grandchildren because they can spoil them as much as they want and when it is time to discipline them, they can send them back to their parents. Well, God doesn't do it. God does discipline, guide, help, and protect us as a parent does, and that too every one of us as we all are children of God and not grandchildren of God to be disciplined or guided by someone else.
So, God's love and mercy are required and warranted if God is our Father and Mother. God will show mercy to us and treat us with compassion as the Scripture says, "The Lord is compassionate and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness." Psalm 103:8 Let us celebrate God's Mercy towards us not because we are wretched but because we are the beloved! The beloved of God!

Compline Resumes On April 12
After 380 plus days of faithful prayer time at 9 pm and other times, we took a break from livestreaming our prayers for a week. However, it is time for us to return to that discipline of community prayer again. We will return to compline at 9 pm starting Monday, April 12th. Our leaders going forward for now will be: Tessa Melancon, Kathleen Jackson, Bob Jackson, Maryelle Vonlathen, Mike Bishop-Jones, and myself.
I hope to see you on Monday evenings again for our compline.
Fr. Jos
Thanks to the parents and children who attended the Easter Egg Hunt on April 4th. 
My appreciation also goes to Tammy, Kimby and Easter Bunny for their support and assistance.  
If your child found an egg with a paper with the word written “SURPRISE”inside, please ensure your child brings the egg and paper with the word “SURPRISE”to me on Sunday to claim the small prize. I need both. It was supposed to be given to the Easter Bunny, but with the eggcitement, the children forgot. Thank you!
Blessings always!

Sunday School Program and Times
Welcome to EKC in person Sunday School!
Ages 5-11
Sunday Mornings @ 9:15 am
This week is all about community. Let's dive in and see what we can learn from the early structure of the christian church. In Act 4:32-35 we see the church was of one heart and soul. What is to be said for this way of thinking and how does it apply to how we relate to one another in the church today?
The Gospel this week comes to us from John 20:19-31. In this passage Thomas is having a hard time believing that Jesus is back from the dead and requires proof. Would we be so quick to believe? What does Thomas teach us about faith?

Bible Study
Ages 12-18
Sundays After the 10:30 am Church Service in the Youth Room
This week we look at the book of Acts 4:32-35 and discover a new way of looking at community. How does the practices of the early christian church relate to us today in our modern churches and communities. Is this way of caring for one another still apply today?
The Gospel reading comes from the book of John 20:19-31. Good old doubting Thomas, he just couldn't believe it until he had seen it. Are we like Thomas? What can we take on faith and what needs proof?

Looking for a way to support our community? Those in need--college students, families, the elderly, those with special needs, your neighbors-- rely on Crosslines to help fill their pantries and refrigerators with food, hygiene items, and other necessities. St. James dedicates itself to help others through Crosslines whenever there is a 5th Thursday in the month. April is one of these months! 
There are two ways you can help. You can help by mailing in those checks or bringing them to Sunday service. Mark them “Outreach.” Or you can bring food or hygiene items to the front foyer of the church. Please bring in your canned foods, shampoo, boxed meals, etc. before Monday, April 26th. Your help is greatly needed and appreciated by those you serve! 
Thank you, St. James! Please call Nancy Terry at 417-860-6879 if you have any questions.
