Who is invited?
EVERYONE! Whether you’ve never stepped foot in a church or you’ve believed in Jesus your whole life, we’d love to celebrate with you! If you’re new to the faith, our Easter Sunday celebrations are the perfect space for you to hear the Gospel in a fresh way.

Why do we celebrate?
Good Friday is a time where we remember Jesus’ death on the cross, which signifies His sacrifice and suffering for us so that we could be made whole (check out Romans 5:8!). Easter, on the other hand, is a time where we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. This is a joy-filled day that signifies a defining moment in our faith: we can now walk in freedom because of everything Jesus did!
What to expect at each service
Our Good Friday service is a powerful night of prayer and worship where we reflect on Jesus’ death. These services tend to be more reflective as we remember His suffering. However, our Easter Sunday services are times where we go all out celebrating the resurrection of Jesus! These are times full of high-energy worship as well as an inspiring message from our Senior Pastor, Pastor Ken Vance. You won’t want to miss either experience!
How can be a part of these services?
Good Friday: Join us for an incredible Good Friday service in-person! We will not be live-streaming or rebroadcasting this service, so we can’t wait to see you in the building.
Easter: Join us in-person for a once-in-a-lifetime Easter experience! If you can’t make it in-person, join our online family and watch our livestream right here on our website (just hit the “Media” tab at the top), or on our Youtube or Facebook @verticalchurchct. A rebroadcast will be available that week as well on our Youtube channel.
If possible, we recommend attending in-person for a full experience. There’s nothing like being in the building with our community!
Will Children’s Church & Vertical Youth be open?
Yes! During our Easter services, our Children’s Church will be open for children ages 1 through those in fifth grade. Vertical Youth’s Middle School groups will also be open for students grades 6-8.
