Gospel Rescue Mission—Due to the influx of immigrants into our community, Gospel Rescue Mission is in desperate need of volunteers, funds and supplies. If you wish to donate supplies, they would appreciate items of personal hygiene; shampoo and conditioner; lotion; chapstick; blankets; towels; clothing; canned food; bottled water; and stuffed animals.

Thursday Bible Study at Steinborn's Realty—Our normal Thursday Bible class will resume on April 25th at 7:00 p.m. at Steinborn's. John Fitzgerrel will lead us in a study on the difficulty women in biblical times have in serving the Lord as illustrated by the women of the Old Testament. There will be three sessions: April 25th, May 2nd, and May 16th. We will then recess for the summer and resume after Labor Day. 

Carol Nike Master's Recital, April 23rd at 7:30 p.m.—Our music director, Carol Nike, invites the congregation of St. James' to attend her Master's recital at Atkinson Hall on the NMSU campus on Tuesday, April 23rd, at 7:30 p.m. Carol has chosen to direct the choir in selections of Gregorian chant; and pieces by Heinrich Schultz, J.S. Bach, Haydn, Monteverdi, Certon, Schumann, John Tevener and Carly Simon (the one you know about!). Please come and support Carol, enjoy a beautiful evening of music, and attend the reception afterwards to which Carol's church family and friends are cordially invited!

Soup Kitchen—The Soup Kitchen on TUESDAY, April 30 has been canceled. Stay tuned for another date when we will do this.

The Evangelism Outreach and Missions Committee distributed 30 Esperanza bags, April 16, to the Gospel Rescue Mission in response to the emergency immigrant influx in Las Cruces. Thank you to Phala White, Senior Warden, and Patrick and Margo Lamb for their financial support of the project.  Thanks also to Patrick Lamb and Terry Meyer who assisted with the preparation of the bags.
