Estrella Mountain Church
God is our Refuge & Strength
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns. The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
We will be meeting together this Sunday, November 15, 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.
