Life is better when it is lived in relationship with others. Vertical Church Community Groups are small groups of people from all ages, stages, and walks of life who spend time together around the shared life of Jesus, studying His Word and encouraging one another to live out His principles.

Members of Community Groups are known, loved, cared for, encouraged, and challenged to be more like Jesus. Come join a Community Group and let’s do life together!

Our Groups

Women’s Bible Study on Acts

We will meet online through Zoom the first and third Thursdays of each month from 7:00-8:30pm for fellowship and the opportunity to study God’s Word together.  The format will be an inductive study, as we examine together the context, interpretation and application of each verse.  The study of Acts teaches us about the gift of God’s Holy Spirit, the beginning of the Church and God’s plan to use the Church to expand His kingdom here on earth.  No matter where you are in your faith walk, this study will help deepen your understanding of God’s Word and develop wonderful friendships along the way.”

Your church needs warriors, your family needs warriors, your God needs warriors. Become a part of the New Generation of Warriors. For men and women of all ages.
