Connecting people to God
and others to live sent


Because We're Better Together

Whether you're new to Vertical or this has been your home for years, the easiest way to start meeting people is through a Vertical Group. These are so much more than just a quick handshake or a hello at church: Groups are where you can develop deep and lasting friendships that go beyond Sunday morning, and this is what makes a church family so relevant and valuable to your life.

2 Steps to Join Your Group


Step 1 

Choose from a variety of
options from location, interest,
and schedule to find the
group that’s just right for you.

Step 2

Submit your information and
a Vertical Group Rep will
contact you shortly with
more details.


We're excited to offer gatherings for men and for women.

All men are invited to join a community called The Hangar, all women are invited to join a community called The Table. Click the icons below to learn about each community and how to join.


Vertical Group Leaders


Called to lead

It's so easy to discount yourself and feel like you're too unqualified to lead a Group. We believe that God has put people in your life that only you can encourage and influence. Leading a group could be way more rewarding than you could ever imagine! Take the next step into leading a Group and rethink what you're capable of.

Vertical Groups Faqs

What's the structure like?

We have three group cycles per year (Fall, Spring and Summer).  Authentic community takes work and commitment.  We ask that everyone make a commitment to meet with their group through the semester. To help us connect with God, group meetings include a time of study and discussion. To help us connect with others, groups are intentional about forming relationships.   

Groups have different focuses, for example: Financial Peace University (FPU - presenting biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be), studying through a book of the Bible together, how to be a better parent, and digging deeper into Sunday’s morning sermon.

Is childcare provided?

Vertical Church offers a flat-rate reimbursement plan; however, it is your responsibility to make childcare arrangements for your children during group meetings. Please click the button below to fill out the reimbursement form. If you have any questions about Childcare Reimbursement, you can email our Director of Administration, Amata Castillo, at
