Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

At Vertical Students, we are all about helping students take a step closer to Christ. We do that by being a place to make deep connections, grow in faith, and reach those who are from God.

Wednesday Nights


On Wednesday nights, we start in  the PEAK
(our student center) for a time to hang out at 6pm. Come play a game of pool, sit on the couches and talk, or grab a snack before service starts.

At 7pm the beat drops as we start worship together. We'll enjoy some high-energy and Christ centered songs, friendly games, and a message from Pastor Shane.

After service, we break up into small groups to connect in a deeper way.

We would love for you to join us on a Wednesday night to see what Vertical is all about.

Small Groups

Make deep connections and grow in your faith.

Small groups is a large part of the DNA at Vertical Students. We worship and learn in rows but we connect in a deep way in circles. Our small groups are broken up by age group and gender to help you make connections with people like you. Join us to experience why small groups are big deal to us.
