Come as you are and experience what God has for you, in a comfortable and inviting environment, every Sunday at 11am. Our music is dynamic and expressive. You also might see some people raising their hands as a biblical expression of worshipping God. Followed by worship, we dive into the Word of God and provide practical ways to live empowered and victorious lives.

We have a deep passion to reach people with the hope of Christ. We believe that the power of Christ can transform every life. Vertical Encounter is a place of healing, restoration, and second chances. You are invited to visit with us this weekend for practical teaching, great music, an exciting kids program, and an empowering church experience.

We want your kids to love Church. That’s why we are committed to creating safe and fun environments where your children are taught about the Bible and the love of Jesus through relevant, age-appropriate kids services. We bring kid-inspired fun to every service and classroom through energetic worship music, interactive games, and bright, friendly environments.


When you arrive, look for our check-in station downstairs after immediately walking in the main entrance . One of our friendly team members will help check your child into our system. You and your child will receive personalized, coordinating ID tags unique to your family and your visit, which you will show after the service in order to pick up your child. If you lose your ID tag, you will be required to show your Driver’s License in its place. At check-in, we will ask for the following personal information: Family member’s names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions such as allergies or special needs for your child. 


If for any reason we need to contact you during the service, your child’s ID code will appear on the screen in the auditorium. If you see your ID code, please exit the auditorium, go to the kids area, and ask a staff member to take you to your child’s room.
