Groups are the best way for people to grow, learn, have fun and build healthy new relationships. At Vertical, we put it like this: "We desire to see people in circles, not just rows." This is where we share stories, dreams, fears, laughter, and of course, often times food.

God designed us for community. At its core, a Small Group is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. We all need each other and that’s why we have Small Groups. Just like most things, you won’t know until you try, so check out the groups listing and connect with a Small Group today!

You don’t need to have it all together to lead a Small Group—you just have to be willing to let God use you. To host a group, you simply choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. Then, we give you a few essential tools like first-time leader training, a directory where others can find your group, and support throughout the semester. We believe God uses Small Groups to change people’s lives, and as a Small Group leader, you get to be a part of that.

F.A.Q. about Groups

Secondary Title

What kind of groups do you offer?

Our desire is for you to connect with other people to grow relationships that will help everyone take their next step toward Jesus. To do that, we provide a variety of different kinds of groups, both in person and online. Some groups are centered around a Bible study or a particular book. Other groups help you grow those relationships around a shared interest, activity, or life-stage.

Online groups, how does that work?

Online groups give us the opportunity to continue connecting not only with military families who move away, but also those who travel for work, find us online and want to connect, or can't leave their residence for health reasons. 

Our online groups are hosted on the video conferencing website 

Zoom is a free download and available on all mobile devices, tablets, and desktops. 

How often do groups meet?

Each group is different. Some groups meet every week, others meet every other week. We even have groups that meet just once a month! The group leader will keep everyone informed regarding meeting times and locations. 

How long do groups last?

Most groups typically last about 3 months. We do have a few groups that meet continually through the year.
