Estrella Mountain Church
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
We will be meeting together this Sunday, February 28, 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 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, give as you exit the Sunday service, or give online here: https://emcaz.org/give. Again, thank you!
Your end-of-year giving statements have been distributed. 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. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
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!
