Estrella Mountain Church
Good morning, EMC!
Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer's; he makes me tread on my high places.
Another week of being apart physically, but we still are CONNECTED through the Holy Spirit. And we are still the church! Here's a link for the song "Though You Slay Me" by Shane & Shane. We've worshiped together singing this song. It's a great reminder in these times that HE is worthy of all our praise and worship. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyUPz6_TciY
We will again livestream on Sunday: 9am & 11am Sunday services. Go to https://emcaz.org/ and click on the Livestream box . Aren't you thankful for the technology to stay connected virtually? I am so looking forward to our times together in the near future!
Our preschool need your help. Please click HERE and find out how you can help. Thank you.
Don't forget to accept your invitation to FaithLife. It's a great place to share prayer requests, study the Bible together, keep up-to-date on what's happening, and so much more. If you didn't receive an invitation, please let me know and I'll send it to you. As we learn together, I would appreciate your feedback. :)
You Matter Ministries continues to minister to the homeless. Please bring your water and PB&J donations on Monday & Tuesday, 9am-11am. They still need plastic grocery bags for handing out food.
Thank you again for your faithfulness and generosity during this time. There are several ways you can give: We have installed a drop box by the office door, mail your check, use your bank's Bill Pay option and have them send your check, or give online here: https://emcaz.org/give. Again, thank you!
If you know of anyone who needs help, or need to contact the office, please call (623.386.0300) or email (email@example.com) and I'll respond as soon as possible.
Looking forward in HOPE!

Pray for Muslims #lovemuslims
30 days...1.8 billion people. Pray during Ramadan
SIGN UP: Click here for a daily reminder. On April 24 you will begin receiving emails with powerful videos featuring former Muslims leading you in prayer for specific and strategic needs within the Muslim world.
Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture. Muslims observe the month of Ramadan, to mark that Allah, or God, gave the first chapters of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad in 610, according to the Times of India. During Ramadan, Muslims fast, abstain from pleasures and pray to become closer to God.
We know people and the stories of many, many Muslims, because they really are seekers of Truth, who actually do come to know Christ personally as their Savior and come to serve Him as their Lord during their month of Ramadan fasting!
