You're Invited!

A lot of us struggle during the busy Christmas season making a memorable moment with our families. Between school programs, work parties, and Christmas shopping, it seems like Christmas has come and gone before we know it.

What if this Christmas was different?

At Vertical Church, we want to help your family have that moment we all want. That's why we're hosting "Christmas in Hampton Roads: A Family Christmas Experience." Join us for a fun time for the whole family. Take a FREE picture with Santa, enjoy a holiday treat (or two), laugh with your kids, and have a moment to slow down and hear the Christmas story in a fresh way. Not only are you going to have a great time, but your family will leave with Christmas memories you'll cherish.

Frequently Asked questions

Q: Is childcare offered?

A: Christmas in Hampton Roads is an opportunity for your entire family to engage in a Christmas experience. Everyone will be together in the auditorium during the program. For our normal Sunday morning services, we offer a fun and engaging kids' experience for those 5th grade and under. In fact, one of our goals is to make Sunday your child's new favorite day of the week!

Q: Where do I park?

A: Parking is available near the front and sides. When the parking immediately in front of the facility is full, we have overflow parking available across the street. Our awesome parking team will be outside to help.

Q: What should I wear?

A: You don't have to dress up. Most people at Vertical Church dress casually. However, we will have a FREE Photo Booth with Santa available, so this would be a perfect opportunity to snap some great pictures with your family.  

Q: How long will it last?

A: Christmas in Hampton Roads begins at 4:30pm and lasts about 60 minutes. Doors open at 4pm for activities, pictures, holiday treats, and some fun pre-experience games. 

Q: Can I attend if I'm ... ?

A: Everyone is welcome at Vertical Church for Christmas in Hampton Roads. While we understand the fear many have about not being accepted, we want you to feel loved and welcomed into our home like family... even if your family was less than ideal. Christmas is for everyone! So come as you are, and we'll see you there!
