New Student Ministries Pastor
If you've somehow missed it, we are so excited to have our new Student Ministries Pastor, Marcus Cleveland, and his wonderful family joining us here at Manteno Nazarene! Marcus has experience in student ministries with his most recent assignment being in Bicknell, IL. His wife, Casey, works as an oncologist. They have three awesome young sons; Arthur, Gus, and Finn. We want to give a warm welcome to Marcus and his amazing family as they arrive August 8. Our plan is twofold - we want to give them gift cards as they move in and we want to give them local knowledge. You know, the kinda stuff you ask your neighbor when you move in; dog groomers, best places to ride your bike, the coolest play park and splash pad, who has the best chimichangas, who to call when it's 10pm and your basement is flooding, which dmv to go to, and of course - who has the best pizza. Please pick up a card in the lobby or bring one from home, and drop it in the basket in the lobby.
Pregnancy Resource Center
If you would like to donate to the Pregnancy Resource Center, we have baby bottles to fill with change available at the welcome center. Please return them to the church by September 1.
