Estrella Mountain Church
The Year of the LORD
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.
We will be meeting together this Sunday, January 17, 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.
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!
Your end-of-year giving statements will be distributed this week. We changed our giving platform in the spring of 2020, so you may receive two giving statements, via email and/or mail. Please combine them for your total contributions of 2020.
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!
