MOPS Open House
Friday, August 25 | Manteno MOPS will be kicking off the 2023-24 year at their annual Open House on Friday, August 25 at 9:30am at our church. MOPS is a great way for mothers with little ones to form a community where they can come together to share their parenting journey and learn from one another. Our MOPS meets on Friday mornings twice a month in the Children's Center. Childcare is provided for ages 6mos- 5 years at each meeting. If you have any questions leading up to the Open House, please reach out to our MOPS coordinator at 815-468-8946.

Media and Music Workshop
Saturday, August 26 | Calling all tech team and worship band, and all people who have thought, "I'd be cool if I was on tech team or on stage in the worship band." We are having a training day on August 26 in the morning. We invited some outside experts to evaluate what we are doing and help us come up with ways to improve, or just congratulate us on our excellence. We will be dividing up into small teams to work on the different aspects. It will, hopefully, be educational.

Two Services
Sunday, September 10 | Due to growth and growth to come, we are splitting into two services. They will be at 9am and 10:30am. Invite your friends, there should be plenty of room.

Journey Groups
Sunday, September 10 | Journey Groups will be back for the Fall session the week of September 10 (why yes, that is the same day we go to two services.) Check out a list of Journey Groups to chose from at: , at the welcome desk, or on our website.

Wednesday Night Dinner
Wednesdays | Starting September 13 | 5:30-6:15pm | Bring the whole family out and we’ll take care of preparing dinner. The suggested donation for an individual is $4 or feed the whole family for no more than $20. Great food, great fellowship, and a great deal! Just to make it easier for planning, could let us know if you are coming to the first dinner?

We are still looking for a part-time custodian. Go to the employment page under resources on the church website,, if you are interested or want more information.

Crisis Care Kits
Crisis care kits are sent out by the Nazarene Church all over the world when disaster strikes. The kit is made up of personal care items and is designed to get you thru the first couple hard days after disaster strikes. Kits are assembled by individual churches and sent to warehouses where they wait till they are needed. For the disaster in Hawaii, we as a global church have so far sent over 6,000 kits. We continuely collect for these kits locally, but are in special need of a few items at this time. We are looking for Shampoo (12-18oz), Toothpaste (4-6.4oz), and Handtowels. Donations can be dropped in the box in the coat room.

House of the Lord
Graves Into Gardens
Great Are You Lord
House Of The Lord
Verse 1
We worship the God who was
We worship the God who is
We worship the God who evermore will be
He opened the prison doors
He parted the raging sea
My God He holds the victory yeah

There’s joy in the house of the Lord
There’s joy in the house of the Lord today
And we won’t be quiet
We shout out Your praise
There’s joy in the house of the Lord
Our God is surely in this place
And we won’t be quiet
We shout out Your praise

Oh oh oh
We shout out Your praise

Verse 2
We sing to the God who heals
We sing to the God who saves
We sing to the God who always makes a way
'Cause He hung up on that cross
Then He rose up from that grave
My God’s still rolling stones away

('Cause) We were the beggars
Now we’re royalty
We were the prisoners
Now we’re running free
We are forgiven accepted
Redeemed by His grace
Let the house of the Lord sing praise

There is joy in this house oh yeah
There is joy there is joy
And we won't be quiet
We're gonna shout out Your praise

We shout out Your praise
There is joy in this house
There is joy in this house today
We shout out Your praise
We shout out Your praise

Graves Into Gardens
Verse 1
I searched the world but it couldn't fill me
Man's empty praise and treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then You came along and put me back together
And every desire is now satisfied here in Your love

Oh there's nothing better than You
There's nothing better than You
Lord there's nothing
Nothing is better than You

Verse 2
I'm not afraid to show You my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord You've seen them all
And You still call me friend
'Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
There's not a place
Your mercy and grace won't find me again

You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You're the only one who can

You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You're the only one who can

Verse 1
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus' Name

Christ alone cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Saviour's love
Through the storm He is Lord
Lord of all

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

He is Lord Lord of all

Verse 3
When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless stand before the throne

Great Are You Lord
You give life You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope You restore ev'ry heart that is broken
And great are You Lord

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry these bones will sing
Great are You Lord
