Next Level Update

A new series, an upcoming mission trip, and some amazing Owners. It must be time for another Next Level Update…

  • This Sunday starts Family Month at Next Level. I’m asking two things for this series. 1. Every Owner commit to come for four weeks in a row. What if the vast majority of our church showed up four Sundays in a row? I believe family is important enough to make this a priority. 2. Every owner to pray for a family to invite for this series. The ask is incredibly easy. People think about, care about, and are interested in looking for help with family. It’s something we all have in common. I don’t want anything from your friends and family. I want something for them. I want families to rock!!!
  • This Sunday there is a gift for everyone who attends.
  • Every fall we prepare for new guests by creating a new set design. It may seem like it magically appears, but it takes hours of prep and work to pull it off. We had some amazing Owners work all day on Labor Day to get most of the work done. Not only did they put the set together they took it upon themselves to paint the stage, and they took out all the trash. Are you joking me. Are. You. Joking. Me!!! That is second mile service. I love it!!! We had others work late Thursday night, after work, and throughout the week to get the new set ready. The set is hot like fire!!!
  • Big shout out to all the Owners who made it happen.
  • September is typically a time where people check out church, are open to going to church, or come back. We want to make sure we do everything we can to be ready for them.
  • Speaking of getting ready have you seen the new parking lot? One of our amazing Owners took the lead and made sure our parking lot looks amazing for our guests. It also gives us more parking for you and your family. Win, win.
  • Veterans Day weekend we will be taking a team to NY City to do mission work with an organization called Nysum. More details will be coming shortly. Stay tuned.
  • I believe it takes a village to run a church. It takes all sorts of people with various gifts. We need each other to fulfill Jesus’ command to make disciples.
  • The last few months have been some of my favorite since starting Next Level. We have some amazing people! We are better together.
  • What if God transformed a whole city? What if He transformed an entire peninsula?
  • What if God used you to do it?
  • Our mission is simple, love Jesus, love people, and make a difference.
  • I believe together we can make an amazing difference in the 757. Who is with me?
