Baptisms
Sundays, August 7 & 14 | When God changes your life, it's worth celebrating! We're so excited for the baptisms coming up in August. Get in touch with Pastor Ken (kbushey@mantenonazarene.org) to go public with your faith or celebrate what God's been up to in your life!

Volleyball
Mondays | 7-9pm | We are trying to get a Monday night Volleyball game going here at church. Anyone is welcome. For more information, contact Mykenna Eckhoff.

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.

The Solid Rock
Expand
Verse 1
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus' name

Chorus
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

Verse 2
When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In ev’ry high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

Verse 3
His oath His covenant His blood
Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my hope and stay

Verse 4
When He shall come with trumpet sound
O may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne

Verse 1
They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now right now I'm losing bad
I've stood on this stage night after night
Reminding the broken it'll be alright
But right now oh right now I just can't

Pre-Chorus
It's easy to sing
When there's nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I'm held to the flame like I am right now

Chorus 1
I know You're able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

Verse 2
They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Well good thing
A little faith is all I have right now

Pre-Chorus
But God when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Oh give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul

Chorus 2
I know the sorrow and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You just say the word
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

Bridge
You've been faithful
You've been good all of my days
Jesus I will cling to You
Come what may
'Cause I know You're able
I know You care

Interlude
I hope in You alone ooh

Ending
It is well with my soul
It is well it is well with my soul

Verse 1
The Lord is my Shepherd
He goes before me
Defender behind me
I won't fear
I'm filled with anointing
My cup's overflowing
No weapon can harm me
I won't fear

Hallelujah I am not alone
He's my Comfort always holds me close

He always guides me
Through mountains and valleys
His joy is refreshing
Restores my soul
Mercy and goodness
Give me assurance
That I'll see His glory
Face to face

So I will walk in Your peace
Your Spirit lives within me

Forward Thinking: When Life Is Good Enough
Genesis 11:31-23
July 24, 2022

Genesis 11:31
Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan.

Genesis 11:31
But when they came to Harran, they settled there.

When we lack faith, we’ll settle for good enough.

People of faith ask, “What’s next?”

Genesis 11:32
Terah lived 205 years, and he died in Harran.

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran.

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

The journey of life is designed to be a journey of faith.

God gets the glory when miracles are required.

Where does God want to take you next?
Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)
Expand
Verse 1
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep my faith will stand

Chorus 1
And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Verse 2
Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sov'reign hand will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

Interlude
Oh and You are mine oh

Bridge
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Saviour

Interlude
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh Jesus yeah my God

Chorus 2
I will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine
