WELCOME

We are so glad you have joined us today! Our desire is that God
would bless and direct this time together. Worship is an
interactive, participatory experience and our prayer is that the
service today 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.

WH AT TO EXPECT TOD AY
Worship: a time to connect with God through song and prayer.
Feel free to stand and sing with us as we praise God through
singing by following the on-screen lyrics. A typical service lasts
about 65 minutes.
Offering: We give tithes and offerings as a part of worship in
obedience, celebration, and thanksgiving to the Lord. Its also just
our way of saying, We love our church and we want to support
it! If you are a guest, you are not expected or obligated to give.
Children: We have a fully-staffed Nursery for ages three and
below. Kids ages 4-12 will be dismissed during the service to the
childrens chapel to be taught by Pastor Linda and her staff.
Message: The teaching time seeks to communicate biblical truth
in compelling, relevant ways. All of our messages are available
as podcast on our website www.estillnaz.org or through iTunes.

Response: When God is speaking, we take time to respond.


Most of the time this is after the message, but at other times it
may be in the middle of the service. An invitation is never needed
if you want to pray at the altar.
Communion: We take time monthly to celebrate Communion
and welcome all followers of Jesus Christ to participate in this act
of worship and remembrance regardless of membership or
denomination.

MICAH 6:8 MINISTRY from Sandy Schefcik


Did You Know polling has its place, but generally speaking,
candidates don't lead the voters -- voters lead them? Senator Marco
Rubio (R-Fla.) stated his opinion that "There is no federal constitutional
right to same sex marriage. There isn't such a right. You have to have a
ridiculous reading of the U.S. Constitution to reach the conclusion that
people have a right to marry someone of the same sex." Other stalwarts
like Governor Mike Huckabee and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), haven't
budged from their position. While conservatives are usually blamed for
fixating on marriage, Senator Cruz fired back that it's actually liberals
who "are obsessed with mandatory gay marriage in all 50
states." Governor Scott Walker (R-Wisc.) stated "Let me be clear, I
believe marriage is between one man and one woman,.,,,,. I still hold
out hope that the Supreme Court will rule, as has been the tradition in
the past, that the states are the places that get to define what marriage
is. If for some reason they don't ... I believe it's reasonable for the
people of America to consider a constitutional amendment that would
affirm the ability of states to do just that." Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
refused to comment on the issue. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)
stated "To those who say, on the Republican side, we need to abandon
social conservatism so quit talking about these issues because you
can't win an election. Here's my response. You don't know what you're
talking about."
These candidates understand what the media cannot: Regardless of
what the Supreme Court rules on marriage this summer, they won't
settle such a fundamental public policy issue any more than Roe v.
Wade settled abortion in 1973. Forty-two years later, it is an issue in
every election from the President on down.
