He is Risen...He is Risen Indeed!
It's Easter weekend! Here's what is happening:
- Good Friday Service - Fri., 4/2 @ 7:30PM, EMC Sanctuary
- Easter Sunrise Service - Sun., 4/4 @ 6AM, EMC Fields
- Easter Worship Services - Sun., 4/4 @ 9AM and 11AM, EMC Sanctuary
We will be live streaming both 9am and the 11am services. Once again, we leave the decision of wearing a mask and/or social distancing up to you. We have hand sanitizer 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!

A Note from Ann
Hi friends! If you saw last week's livestream, you heard Jeremy announce my retirement, after nearly 13 years of serving here at EMC. My official last day is June 30, so you will see me around for a few more months. And I am so pleased that Jenna Schutten (our worship leader Dan's wife) will be taking over. I know she will do a great job and be such a blessing to all y'all.
Mark and I will still attend and serve and love this church, but we will have a few trips throughout the year. We really do love y'all!
