Adopt-A-Highway Litter Pick-Up
The Next Chapter Church has agreed to adopt a 2 mile stretch on KY 9 (AA Highway), in order to keep it litter free. We will go out for our first pick up THIS Saturday, April 21st at 9AM. Please meet here at the church at 9 and we will travel together to our specific location to beautify our roads and city. You must be 13 years of age or older in order to help us with litter pick-up.

There are all types of mom, we all parent a little differently, we are in different life stages, but we all want what’s best for our children. Momtourage is a Christ-centered group for moms by moms. Our mission is to be an entourage for moms, providing support for all moms, in their various stages of life. It’s a place to share your excitement, an escape from chaos, a time to connect, grow, and build relationships. We welcome all moms (and moms-to-be) to join us for our open house on May 18th at 5:30 in Nexus.

Family Promise
Our next opportunity to love our friends at Family Promise is THIS Friday, April 20th. Family Promise is an organization that works with homeless families, temporarily housing them in churches, while the parents work towards permanent employment and housing. We get to spend an evening with them, providing a meal, hanging out and playing with the kids, and spending the night. We need volunteers to drive them, provide food, play, and stay the night. If you are able to help out please e-mail at office@thenextchapterchurch.com (mailto:office@thenextchapterchurch.com?subject=Family%20Promise) . This may also be a great opportunity for a Life Group to serve together.

“This Is Us” Series
Just like the television show, “This Is Us”, our sermon series takes a look at the real struggles and dynamics that occur in relationships at seasons of our lives. Whether you are single, married, surrounded by negative people, or simply trying to experience an intimate friendship – we will look at the ways in which we can discover contentment in all our relationships, and not allow others to snuff out our joy.
