Vertical (Grades 6-12)

Vertical is our ministry for 6th through 12th grade students at the Church at Sheppard. Vertical is all about students coming together, having a great time, hanging out with all their friends, and growing in their relationship with God. Each week we have several different opportunites for students to get invovled in what Vertical is doing. 

Sunday mornings at 9:30 we have Vertical Life Groups. It's an awesome time to hang out with your friends and kick off your week. During Life Groups we have games, teaching, and then break into small groups around tables. Students have some time to talk and share life with adult leaders. 

Wednesday nights at Vertical are from 6:30-7:30. We always play awesome games,funny videos and a message that will help you navigate life! Grab a friend and come check it out! 

During the summer our Wednesday nights look a little different than they do during the school year. This summer we are doing something new and exciting called Cribs. Students will meet in the home of Johnny and Denise Roberts where we will walk through a series by Francis Chan. 

They will meet every Wednesday night from 6:30-7:30 beginning June 18thThese will be great times for students to hang out with their friends, have some fun, and have a Bible study led by one of our leaders.
