Estrella Mountain Church
Our God is Faithful
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
We will be meeting together this Sunday, November 1, 9am service only. We will be live streaming both 9am and the 11am service. Once again, we leave the decision of wearing a mask and/or social distancing up to you. We have hand sanitizer and masks available for your convenience, and the facility is clean. Please attend at your own discretion.
We have lots of activities coming up in November!
