Help Alyssa ! A Special Request
A Special Request From Rebecca Alderfer
This beautiful 7 yr old was severely injured when her left leg was accidentally pinned underneath a pickup truck. She had major damage to tissue, ligaments and tendons and has suffered a heartbreaking amount of pain. Already underwent 2 surgeries and will need more in the future. Please pray for strength for Steven, Sylvia, and Allysa and for Jesus to comfort and stay close to them and the rest of the children at home. Steven will be off work for quite awhile. This family has sown so many seeds of love and kindness to literally everyone God put in their path..lets take this opportunity to give back.
Thank you and God Bless each and everyone of you!! Here is the link if you would like to contribute to Alissa's medical care. Click here to support Alissa through GoFundMe.
Let Us Stay Connected!
I read yesterday that some people have Covid Brain! What that means is there is a sort of brain fog created by a lack of interaction with people. It destabilizes us internally and makes us less motivated, and adds more confusion, to some of who already have it without another dose from Covid.
No one could have predicted we would be holed up in our homes for a year. Now even though we want all of these to be behind us, we are not quite there yet. We are still reeling from the effects of the pandemic and subsequent isolation, brain fog, lethargy, and more.
In the midst of all of these staying connected with people whom we like and dislike is one problem, of course, of the many we have. The bigger problem, however, is being connected with our true selves. In the book Mindful Silence: The Heart of Christian Contemplation, written by some of the great contemplatives of our time, I read, "Staying connected to our true self is all the more challenging when others confront us with rage, aggression, or manipulation... It's when life delivers pain and suffering that our soul is really exposed... Our experiences betray our beliefs."
Yes. How do we connect to our true self when we are confronted with rage, aggression, manipulation, and such? I would like to invite you to reflect on this reality as we struggle with our Covid Brain Fog, what is that keeps us from connecting with our true self, our neighbor, and God? Let us not give in to our covid fog. Let us stay connected.

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 faith and trust as we read about Peter in Acts 3:12-19. To the surprise of the Isaelites, Peter heals a man who can't walk. They believed Peter did this through his own power! Peter then tells them the truth. Join us on Sunday to find out what happens!
The Gospel this week comes to us from Luke 24:36b-48. In these verses Jesus appears to his disciples and opens their minds to the truth of the scriptures. “Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things."

Bible Study
Ages 12-18
Sundays After the 10:30 am Church Service in the Youth Room
In the first reading, Acts 3:12-19, Peter through the power of faith and the name of Jesus heals a man who can't walk. The Isaelites wondered about this and Peter had just about had enough of them. Join us after church to find out how this all goes down.
The Gospel reading comes from the book of Luke 24:36b-48. Jesus appears to his disciples after his resurrection from the dead and scares them so badly they thought they had seen a ghost! Find out on Sunday what it takes for a group of men to believe and understand the mission of Jesus Christ.

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.
