What's Worship Like

WHAT TO EXPECT IN WORSHIP

We are so glad you are considering joining us for worship. Our desire is that God would bless and direct our time together. Worship is an interactive, participatory experience and our prayer is that the service would strengthen and encourage you on your spiritual journey. Whether you are new to faith, just coming back to church, or a long-time follower of Jesus, we hope you find your time with us engaging and meaningful. We have two Sunday morning worship times that are almost identical in programming. Our 8:30am service is generally more crowded than our 11:00am service.

One of the best ways to understand what services are like at EstillNaz is to check out a recording or live stream of our service on Facebook or YouTube.

If you are a first time Guest, we have a special gift for you. One of our pastors will be in the foyer following the service to meet you and give you a gift.


Worship: We take time together to connect with God through song, scripture, fellowship, and prayer. Something special happens we focus on God together. We invite you to stand and sing with us as we praise God by singing a mixture of hymns and modern worship songs, but adopt whatever posture of worship is best for you. The song lyrics and scriptures are projected on screen so that you can follow along. A typical service lasts about 65 minutes.

Children: We have a fully-staffed Nursery for ages three and below. Kids ages 4-12 will be dismissed during the service to the children’s chapel to be taught by Pastor Linda and her staff. All nursery and children's workers have undergone background checks for your child's safety.

Sermon: The teaching time seeks to communicate biblical truth in compelling ways that are relevant to daily living. 

Response: When God is speaking, we take time to respond. Many times this is after the message or sermon, but other times it may be in the middle of the service. Listening and responding to God is one of the most important things that we do. An invitation is never needed if you want to pray at the altar.

Communion: We take time regularly to celebrate Communion and welcome all followers of Jesus Christ to participate in this act of worship and remembrance regardless of membership or denomination. This is not weekly, but periodically. 

Offering: We give tithes and offerings as a part of worship in obedience, celebration, and thanksgiving to the Lord. It’s also just our way of saying, “We love our church and we want to support it!” Giving boxes are located in the foyer, but guests are never pressured to participate in giving.

Discipleship: We have many discipleship groups that meet between our two Sunday morning worship times. Breakfast is served in the fellowship hall, then classes split up for a more personal gathering time of fellowship and studying God's word together in a small group setting. A discipleship group is the fastest and best way to get plugged in to the life of the church.
