"You should expect your visit to Vertical Life Church to be a simple gathering of people who have been deeply loved by God and who are learning to extend that love to others."

Worship Gatherings

The foundation of worship is God’s Word, and we seek to establish everything we do upon His instruction. For this reason, you’ll find biblical, expository preaching at the heart of every service. In our time of worship in song, we lift high God's Word through scriptural, Christ-honoring songs sung by our praise team and congregation.

Our greatest desire on Sunday mornings is to point all people to the greatness of Jesus Christ.  We do not want you walking away talking about whether or not you liked the music or the preaching.  We desire for you to walk away amazed at who God is, what He has done for you, and what He is going to do in your life.  We want you to feel comfortable coming to our gatherings just as you are.  God doesn't play favorites and neither do we.  So, no matter what you wear or what you look like you are welcome here!  

Our music is multi-generational.  This means that we draw from hymns and contemporary songs that have one thing in common... they are songs that are rooted in the Bible and remind us of all that God is and has done for us.  The point of our music is not to create a good show for you to watch.  It is to turn your thinking and affections to Jesus.  Our preaching is rooted in the Bible and will many times involve going through a book of the Bible a section at a time.  The Scriptures are the primary means of God's work of faith in our lives.  Each week Jonathan will work hard to make sure you are hearing what God says in His word and how it applies to living out the gospel in every area of your life.


There is a children's class for pre-k thru the 5th grade meeting at 9:00 AM on Sunday Mornings.  We are currently taking our children through the Gospel Project

During the worship gathering we encourage families to sit together in order that our children might see Christian Adults in prayer, worship, and engaging with the message.  Nursery is available, if you choose, for children ages birth through 4 years old.
