Why are we changing venues?

In 2017, in response to church growth, the leadership of Vertical Church felt lead to explore expansion opportunities for Vertical and the community of Madison. After reviewing multiple construction concepts and proposals, one design stood out as the best: build an addition to Vertical’s current building. Since the Spring of 2018, the church has been in a state of construction. Now, in order to finish the expansion of the auditorium, staff offices, and the new Vertical Kids space, the church gatherings will be relocating to Madison Crossing.

We firmly believe that through the coming months, we will continue to see people who are far from God experience God for the first time through the community of Vertical. We can’t wait to see how God works during our time at Madison Crossing!

We understand that you probably have a few questions about our venue change. Click on the questions below to find some answers that we hope will be helpful. If you don't see your question or would like more information, follow the button below.


+ Will you still have environments for kids?

Yes! We will have our environment for kids ages 6weeks to 5th grade. We have separate areas for Babies and Toddlers, Preschoolers, and Elementary students. We will even have a special Family Entrance making it easy for you and your crew to enter the building and get your child to the right area.

+ What will happen with youth?

Amplify Students will continue to meet on Wednesday nights. We'll hop around to different areas and have different activities. Students can keep up with where we'll be on the Amplify Facebook and Instagram accounts. Parents, you can keep up with where we'll be on our social media accounts as well as by signing up for our Parent Email list.

+ Why are you changing the service times?

We are changing our service times because we'll be able to accommodate more seating in the Gym we are using for our Sunday Morning Gathering. These are also the new service times we'll have when we're back in our updated permanent space.

+ How will I know where to park?

Our Parking Team will direct you where to park each and every Sunday. There will also be signage with easy to follow directions.

+ What will the setup look like?

Every weekend, we will bring in a team of staff and volunteers to setup the signage, lights and sounds, and general equipment necessary for our Guest Services, Gathering, and Kids environments throughout Madison Crossing. If you would like to be a part of one of the Saturday morning setup teams, you can sign up below.
