Vertical Youth

If you spend any time around our church at all, you’ll quickly learn one thing: we love our youth! They’re smart. They’re funny. They’re bold. And they’re bursting with potential. We truly believe that the middle and high school students in our midst are world changers in the making. We work hard to create environments that engage students in good conversations about God, encouraging them to ask questions, search out answers, and truly learn to listen to His leading in their lives.

Group of diverse friends together

High School

Grades 9 – 12

Our High School students meet for Small Groups every Wednesday Night at 7:00pm in the Youth Center for an evening of connecting with great friends, mentors, and thought-provoking discussions on life and faith.


On the second Wednesday of every month, both Middle & High Schoolers meet in the Concourse at 7pm for One Nights! One Nights are the biggest event of the month for youth, and a chance for all grades to come together as one for a powerful, high-energy, fun night of worship, community, games, and inspiring messages.

Middle School

Grades 6 – 8

Our Middle School students meet every Sunday during our 9am and 11am Celebrations in the Youth Center for age-appropriate teaching, worship, icebreakers, and group discussions.

One the second Wednesday of every month, Middle Schoolers are also invited to our One Nights, for grades 6-12.

See description of One Nights above.
