Vertical Sunday Nite

It's Sunday Nite, 8:08 pm, and we are just getting home from an amazing V-Team Leadership meeting where we spent some time celebrating all we have experienced in our short life as a church. I'm seriously beat and this will be short but I wanted to share our Sunday with those who are interested:

  • Today was our 3rd week of weekly services. Once again, we were blown away to the response to Vertical Church. Our attendance increased today by 18% = never surprised but ALWAYS amazed.
  • The thing that blows us away is not that people are checking us out – it's WHO is checking us out. So many stories of people who "don't do church" coming to Vertical and saying they'll be back next week.

Some of the best stories of the week were:

  • The older lady (maybe in her 70's) introducing me to the people that SHE'S BRINGING to Vertical Church! Win!
  • The older man (70's) who, after experiencing the service and hearing my message, telling his son: "I get it now…" in a very supportive way. Win!
  • The young man who gave his life to Jesus this morning! Win!
  • The lady who rededicated her life to Jesus today with me post-service… Win!
  • The man who Jesus recently saved looking forward to next week's baptism… Win!

A few more things:

  • All of our teams are KILLING IT! Seriously, one of the best examples of team I have ever experienced in my life. 
  • We met our set up goals for this week – got soundcheck and began our Pre-Service on time – Woot!
  • We experienced our quickest tear-down time yet!
  • The response time at the end of the service was sweet. Jesus.
  • My parents were there today along with my sister. Always nice to have your family in one place. 
  • Two friends from my past were in the house today, Chris Currie and Greg Patterson. Chris was a friend in the metal scene for years and just a bangin' singer. It was so good to see him and to know he lives for Jesus. My friend Greg drove in from Morehead City to experience Vertical this morning (wish he lived here!). Greg has actually been involved with 2 church plants so his presence was an honor for me.
  • Vertical Worship today: A Mighty Fortress (Christy Knockels), Forever Changed (Eddie Kirkland), Lead Me to the Cross (Hillsong United), Your love Never Fails (Jesus Culture).

We finished up tonight with a special movie night with our team. We watched the Elevation documentary, "This is How We Change the World". Many tears were shed as the movie hit really close to home – many parrallels in all they (and we) have gone through. If you haven't watched it take the time – it will only be up for one more week – VERY worth an hour, you'll be ready to team with Jesus to change your world.

God is good… Jesus saves and wants to use you – let's let Him.

How Do I Join Vertical?

Vergewithdetails

verge (vʉrj)

noun

  1. the edge, brink, or margin (of something): also used figuratively: the verge of the forest, on the verge of hysteria

Some of you are on the VERGE of a decision that will change your life forever!

We are currently planning our 1st meeting to share how a person can join Vertical Church. On Sunday, March 20th at 9am in Theater 2, I will be sharing Covenant Partnership in a class called "VERGE". The class will take place prior to attending the 10:30 Worship Service. We are excited to share how a person can become part of what we believe is a great movement of Jesus. Registration is free but is limited to 30 participants – first come, first serve!

Most Christians Act like a bunch of Sissies!

Scared-monkey They do. Scaredy cats (or monkeys) at best.

I mean, we know what God has commanded us to do (spread the Gospel). He evidently comes into our lives in a powerful way so that we know that we're His (the Spirit). We learn in the scriptures that the same power that conquered the grave and raised Jesus from the dead is alive in us… yet we don't trust that same power to be at work through us.

Ananias (from Acts 9) was awesome! Check this out as God instructs Him:

 “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” [11] And the Lord said to him, “Rise and go to the street called Straight, and at the house of Judas look for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying, [12] and he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and lay his hands on him so that he might regain his sight.” Now listen to Annanias response: [13] But Ananias answered, “Lord, I have heard from many “Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much evil he has done to your saints at Jerusalem. [14] And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on your name.” [15] But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel. [16] For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name.”

Ananias was afraid – and with just cause – Saul had come there to find and arrest (or worse) people like him. And like Ananias, some of you don’t want to do what Jesus is telling you because you’re scared. But think about this: what if God wants to bring a Game Changer into your life (and someone else's through you) but you are holding back because you are afraid! Fear will paralyze you and rob you  of God’s blessing! What are you scared of?

If Jesus is leading us to do something specific we should step out in faith because He’s gonna be responsible for the outcome (can everybody say, “God’s got this!” He does!). Some of you are afraid to speak to your co-workers or neighbors or family members about Jesus even though you feel, no, you KNOW that He is telling you to!

When Jesus is telling you to do something, remember, it’s because He has already paved the way!!! In the scripture, God wasn't putting Ananias in danger – He was putting him in position to do something major for Him. What's bigger than being the man who led the Apostle Paul to Jesus? I believe that together you and I can make a difference in our region by stepping out in bold, courageous faith, following the voice and instruction of Jesus. Remember Vertical Church, V-Formation #3 says, We are Viral: the Gospel lived out is contagious – may we live with that in mind.

Never forget that this whole thing is part of God’s plan. So don't be a sissy, be an Ananias.

How People REALLY Connect at Vertical


  Communitygroupsarray

As much as we love the time that we gather to worship on Sunday mornings we know that in the long run Sunday morning is never enough to propel people to the place they need to be in relationship with Jesus.

V-Formation #4 is "We are a church OF small groups, not WITH small groups."  Sounds like a play on words but it makes all the difference in your growth.

To quote Andy Stanley, life change happens in circles. I believe it and it's the way that Vertical plans to help people "become passionate about Jesus so they can lead people to Jesus". Circles are better than rows.

Starting-Point-for-Web We are preparing to begin a new V-Group study titled, "Starting Point" in the first week of March. If you really want to get connected at Vertical I would suggest joining a V-Group. If you will fill out this short form our NEXT Team will help you to get connected to a V-Group.

Note: after this session in March we won't start new V-Groups until the fall – this is your opportunity to get in on what makes Vertical "Vertical" in the beginning.
