Because we can't do life alone

Our mission, to connect people to God and others to live sent,
happens best in the context of community. 

At Vertical Church, we have placed a high value on authentic community. The way that we accomplish that is not through sitting in rows on Sunday morning, but by circling up in homes, coffee houses and office buildings all around Mississippi. We believe that sustained life change takes place best within the context of community.


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.
