Estrella Mountain Church
Rest in the Lord
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
We now have two in-person services, meeting at 9am and 11am on Sundays. Both will be livestreamed as well.
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.
Ignite Student Ministry is getting excited for youth camp this summer. They will be having a few fundraisers to help cover costs. Also, VBS registration is now open! Please see below for more information.
Women's Ministry has lots of events coming up. See details below.
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!
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!
