Estrella Mountain Church
Hello again, friends!
In case you didn't realize it, today is FRIDAY! Another week completed in our "quarantine" season. I hope you are enjoying the outdoors, your family, and the time. Embrace the time we have to do something different. Keep praying and spending time in the Word, but maybe do it on the patio. Eat some meals outside while it's still so nice. We know what's coming! :)
Livestream was great last week! Thank you for tuning in. It will be the same this week. Go to our website https://emcaz.org, scroll down to the Livestream box and wait for it to begin at 9am.
Thank you for your faithfulness and generosity during these uncertain times. Keep your PB&J and water coming. Also, Rick needs grocery bags to hand out sandwiches. You Matter Ministries is very busy. The sanctuary is open Monday and Tuesday, 9am-11am to drop off donations.
We also have helped our Rocky Point ministry since they can no longer host short term mission trips to work and support the mission.
If you know of a family in need, please let us know. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus here where we live.
We now have an offering drop box just outside the church office. It's placed in front of the Ring camera near the glass door. I will be checking it often.
I will continue posting a newsletter each Friday in lieu of our Sunday bulletin, so that you can keep informed on all that's happening at EMC. This is new and different for all of us, so please be patient, and if you need anything, please call or email the office at 623.386.0300 and email@example.com. You can also call or text my cell phone at 623.694.2551. Go to our website at https://emcaz.org/ for updates and information as well.
Sending much love, many prayers, and hugs!

Ignite Student Ministries
Calling all Jr & Sr High students! A note from David Sims and Cameron Isaacs:
Although we may not be able to gather for the next few weeks, we still have some awesome opportunities to be in the Word and growing as a group that we are super excited about!
- Live At 5: Sunday nights at 5pm we will be going live on Instagram to bring you a message and discuss the week.
- Daily Devotional: Through the YouVersion Bible App, we will begin going through a Bible reading plan together starting Wednesday. Go to Instagram and follow EMCstudents. The link is in the bio for the Bible reading plan.
Questions? Contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cameron at email@example.com for more info.
