Frequently Asked Questions

If it's your first time at Next Level, you are our honored guest and we know your first visit to a new church can be an intimidating experience, but knowing what to expect makes things go much more smoothly. We do church a little differently than other places, so here are a few frequently asked questions to help you plan your trip.  

+ WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Don't feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire (jeans or business casual), but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.

+ WHAT IS THE SERVICE LIKE?

At Next Level Church, our services have two primary components: music and teaching.

  • Our serviceas are casual and typically last around an hour.
  • When you arrive, stop by the Welcome Center to get a guest packet. At the Welcome Center they can also direct you anywhere else 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.

+ WHAT DO YOU DO FOR KIDS?

At each service, we have a safe, fun environment where kids learn that God loves them and wants to be their friend.

Check-in for our NLC Kids classrooms open 15 minutes prior to the Sunday gathering. We suggest you begin by stopping at our Welcome Center outside the main auditorium and they will guide you through the process of checking your kids in to Awaken Kids (birth-preschool) or Discover Kids (K-5th grade) for the best day of their week.

If you have a High School or Middle School student, our friendly volunteers at the welcome center will get them checked into our student ministry as well. We offer a service for Middle School students at 9:30a and a service for High School students at 11:00a.

+ HOW LONG IS THE SERVICE?

Our services last about one hour where the music rocks, the message makes sense, and we won’t call you out or embarrass you in any way. If you want to see our preaching style, check out our current series.

+ CAN I ATTEND IF I'M ___ ?

One of the questions we get most often at Next Level is "will someone like me be welcome here?" So, we would like to take the opportunity to clear the air and state unequivocally that the following are welcome at Next Level:

Addicts | Thieves | Prostitutes | Hindus | Buddhist | Muslims | Christians | Greedy CEOs | Gays | Gang Bangers | C Students | A Students | Tweakers | Twerkers | Beliebers | Grandparents | Backsliders | Millennials | Gen Xers | Self Haters | Alcoholics | Pimps | Televangelist | Narcissists | Stoners | Atheists | Agnostics | Zealots | Idolaters | Nickelback Fans | Pornographers | Playboys | Republicans | Democrats | Libertarians | Blacks | Whites | Asians | Latinos | Gluttons | Sales People

Everyone is welcome, EXCEPT PERFECT PEOPLE, No Perfect People Are Allowed, you would mess the place up!

PARKING INFORMATION

Parking is available in the lot directly in front of our building. There is also additional parking in the rear of the property. If you have small children and will be using our nursery/preschool, you may prefer to park in the back parking lot as it is closer to the entrance of that building.
