Estrella Mountain Church
Wait on the Lord
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
We will be meeting together this Sunday, December 13, 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. If you do not feel well or have possibly been exposed to COVID, please stay home.
Christmas Eve services will be on Dec. 24, 4pm at the fields here at EMC (bring your own chair and/or blanket) and also at 11pm in the sanctuary.
Just a reminder that the Ladies Christmas Tea is canceled. We will definitely miss our sweet time of fellowship, but look forward to more times together in the near future. We will still be collecting gift cards and cash donations for the Lockard family, which can be placed in the drop box outside the church office, in the offering plate (designate your donation to the Lockard family), or THIS Sunday, 12/13 service in the courtyard. Thank you for your generosity and understanding.
You Matter Ministries continues to minister to the homeless. They are most in need of WATER. Please bring your water and PB&J donations on Monday & Tuesday, 9am-11am, and/or on Sundays. Thank you!
Thank you again for your faithfulness and generosity! There are several ways you can give: We have 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll respond as soon as possible.
Looking forward in HOPE!

**CANCELED Ladies 8th Annual Christmas Tea
After careful consideration, the Ladies Christmas Tea is canceled. We will definitely miss our sweet time of fellowship, but look forward to more times together in the near future. We will still be collecting gift cards and cash donations for the Lockard family, which can be placed in the drop box outside the church office, in the offering plate (designate your donation to the Lockard family), or at the 12/13 Sunday service in the courtyard. Thank you for your generosity and understanding.
Blessing the Lockards: We will collect cash and/or gift cards. They will be traveling to Mayo for their sweet daughter, Desi's radiation 5 days a week for 6 weeks so gas, restaurant and grocery store (they live close to Fry's) gift cards would be very helpful to the family.
