“For I have come to bring you good news, the most joyous news the world has ever heard! And it is for everyone everywhere!" Luke 2:10


That is the reason for this season! Everyone, everywhere to experience the JOY of a Savior who is willing and able to meet their every need. God’s heart to meet each individual where they are, propels us to go into our community and bring JOY through different kind of location-specific outreach events. 


Each location will be serving and meeting needs specific to their community. Going into our communities will provide one on one opportunities to pray, encourage and strengthen relationships; ultimately pointing people to a loving Savior and a church family.

Below you will find more information on where your location will be serving and the ability to sign up. We want everyone who is part of our Next Level Church family to be eternally invested in this week. If you're unable to give or serve, you can PRAY with us. Pray for open hearts in the people that we will be serving and for unique opportunities for us to share the love of Jesus! 

So get your Next Level Church orange shirt ready and join us!
