We Have a Day Planned Just for You

If you have been thinking about going to church for the first time or maybe the first time in a while but haven't made it yet. We get it. Lots of things can get in the way of getting back in church. That's why September 17th is a great day to go to Next Level Church. In fact, September 17th is National Go Back To Church Sunday and there will be thousands of people just like you all around Charlotte who will be visiting a church for the first time in a long time. 

With that in mind, we have planned a great day just for your family. For you kids, we have dozens of trained & qualified volunteers that will make sure they have a great time.  And for you, there will be rockin’ music, amazing coffee, and an extremely relevant message on hope.  

We have two identical services.

9:30a   |  11:00a


We Will Be Talking About Hope

Hope Changes Everything

It can disarm guilt, shatter shame, and put your past in its place. All you have to do is choose to hope again. It won’t be easy. It won’t be quick. But it is possible and we serve a God who promises over and over again that anything is possible.

Our pastor, Clay Monkus, will present a new look at the power of healing through hope, revealing 4 unique choices that have the potential to change your life forever.

In Choose to Hope Again, we will explore accounts of seemingly hopeless moments in the Bible; illustrating God’s ultimate plan for healing by letting hope fill the dark places of your past.

Discover how pain that is not transformed, becomes transferred. Embrace the freedom of being okay with not being okay. Learn that a life of trusting is far more magnificent than a life of pleasing. Because hurt people, hurt people, but free people have the power to free people.

September 17th may be the day that you get unstuck. The day you fill your past with the light of hope, the day you say good-bye to regret and shame. The day you choose to change your future and embrace who God created you to be, simply by choosing to hope again.


What Our Gatherings Are Like

At Next Level Church, our gatherings have two primary components: music and teaching. Our gatherings are casual and typically last around an hour.

  • This is a place where Everyone’s Welcome, because one of the things we’ve learned is that Nobody’s Perfect, and with God we believe that Anything’s Possible.
  • No matter where you’ve been or what you believe, you’re welcome here. 
  • The dress is casual, most people wear jeans, but some go business casual.
  • When you arrive, stop by the Welcome Center where they can direct you anywhere you need to go on campus.
  • Before you head into the main auditorium, stop by the cafe in the lobby for a fresh cup of coffee. 
  • In the main auditorium, the music rocks, the message makes sense, and we won’t call you out or embarrass you in any way.

Sometimes the first week is just about getting through the morning, but our hope for your first visit, as well as every other visit, is this: To meet Jesus and begin to thrive in every aspect of your life.

In fact, we are so passionate about seeing people thrive, this is actually our mission as a church and the longer you’re around the more you’ll see… we really mean it!  So whether you’ve been following Jesus for 40 years or your just beginning to get to know God, we believe that as we encounter Jesus and the words of the Bible in community, God changes us, and ultimately, we thrive.


What About My Kids

We love kids! But if you’re nervous about bringing your child, come on over and see for yourself, we’ll be happy to show you around. But consider yourself warned: children have been known to drag their parents out of bed on Sunday morning because they can’t wait to get to church!

Our Nursery/Preschool and Elementary programs meet during both of our services at 9:30a and 11:00a. If you have questions about any of our programs from nursery to 5th grade, contact Krista McClain, and she will be happy to answer those questions.

Our Middle School students meet during the 9:30a service and High School students meet during the 11:00a service. If you have questions about our student ministry, contact Brad Medford, and he will be happy to answer those questions.

If you would like to pre-register your child in our system...

and thereby speed up the check-in process, just fill out the form below and we will add them to our check-in and security system. Then, on September 17, when you show up, you can check your child in using your phone number. And don't worry, there will be a friendly volunteer that will help guide you through the process on Sunday.
