Christmas Wrapping Day

December 11 at 11:30am

Our church is proud to partner with Alicia’s Closet, a local ministry to children in foster care and their families. Alicia’s Closet provides over 450 gifts to children in Franklin County, and on December 11 we will help wrap and organize the gifts collected from 11:30am–1:00pm. Everyone is welcome to serve these precious local kids in a festive environment!

Candlelight Christmas Eve Service

December 24 at 7:00pm

Please join us for a candlelight Christmas Eve service at Vertical Church at 7:00pm on December 24. We are eager to gather together to light the last Advent candle, sing songs, read God’s Word, and hear a short message as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.

It is a Vertical Church tradition to stay after for a few minutes to wish one another a Merry Christmas over cookies and coffee. Please bring your favorite plate of cookies with you to share!

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness.

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

Excerpts from Isaiah 9
