Night of Worship is THIS SUNDAY NITE!!!

The last time that Vertical Church did a “Night of Worship” was November 12. 2011. It was a powerful night of music, vision, and sensing that God was in our midst. It’s been too long.

Vertical Bladen at Bladen Community College

The thing that I love best about a “Night of Worship” is the opportunity to unhurriedly spend time praising God through singing, having time to pray and to celebrate and remember the sacrifice that Jesus Himself provided by participating in communion together.

This Sunday night at 6:30 is our next “Night of Worship”. We are having it at the Bladen Location but this is not a Vertical Bladen NOW, this is a Vertical church-wide event. Having NOW at the Lumberton location is not an option due to movies showing in the evenings.

This is going to be an INCREDIBLE evening of worship. If you love the music of Vertical Worship and think, “I wish we had more music…” this is the night for you. The elements going along with the music are going to take it over the top!

Here are all the details:

Where: Vertical Bladen Location at Bladen Community College
When: June 2nd, 6:30 pm
Who: Everyone is invited!!

Lumberton peeps – don’t miss this because it’s not in Ltown (it’s under 20 mins) – you WILL regret it if you do – this is gonna be an evening we’ll remember for a long time!

Sunday Nite (Memorial Day Weekend!)

Sunday nite may be a tired nite, but it’s a nite of satisfaction. Today (memorial day Sunday) is one of those days that church services take a hit, but I have to tell you, today was freakin’ awesome at Vertical!!!

I had the infrequent privilege of worshiping at both Vertical locations today and it was so exciting to be at both. This is going to be short, but I just had to share with you Memorial Day Weekend at Vertical through my eyes:

  • Week 3 of our series, “From this Day Forward”. Today’s message was titled, “Fight Fair”. You can check it out on iTunes here.
  • We have a lot of single people (never married AND divorced). I understand that this series has been tough for some. I went into today’s message with that tension on my heart. I wanted THEM to know that i was thinking of them as today’s message was being formed and that today’s word was so applicable to their life. I hope that broke through.
  • The passage we looked at today was James 1:19-20. 2 verses of scripture that can absolutely CHANGE-YO-LIFE.
  • All couples fight – Healthy couples fight for resolution, unhealthy couples fight for victory. The problem with fighting for victory in someone loses – with every loss comes a wound, with every wound a scar and with every scar a reminder of that incident in a person’s life.
  • We looked at 3 rules for fighting fair: #1 I will listen carefully #2 I will guard my words #3 I will control my anger.
  • Told some Keyna stories in today’s message… I guess that I did well as she didn’t feel like I threw her under the bus. She came out on top in all of them… Truth: I AM AN IDIOT. Besides, through the years I have learned The best humor is that which makes fun of yourself.
  • We dug into a verse that is so important in the context of relationship: Ephesians 4:26-27 ESV [26] Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, [27] and give no opportunity to the devil.
  • Some of you struggle with controlling your anger. Let me remind you – this verse proves that anger itself is not sin. You can be angry yet not allow it to become sin in you and in your relationship.
  • There are some who heard today’s message with a bitterness in their heart that began “one day” on a day like today. Think on this: had they lived out the above verse, and not let the day end without dealing with the hurt, they might not be bitter about that thing today. Think on that.
  • Told about the time (recently) that Keyna called me out as a hypocrite. OUCH!!! That one definitely hurt… but worth it for the sake of the Gospel.
  • Taught today how to win a fight every time. You’ll have to listen to hear. #cantgiveitallaway #youhavetohearitincontext
  • Bottom line: God wants to use the relationships in our lives not just to make us happy but to also make us holy – He wants us to become more and more like Jesus. Today’s passages show that. I really hope you check it out online.
  • Worship in both locations was awesome! Alison amazingly led worship in Ltown (first time back since launching Bladen). Girlfriend killed it!!! Rhonda led worship at Bladen in such an anointed way. Jon was also in Bladen co-leading with Rhonda. TRUTH: both locations were so “vertical”. I told Rhonda how proud I was of both… she is doing an incredible job heading up a multisite worship ministry. I am so proud of her.
  • I saw where Robin Barnhardt is this week’s Vertical Volunteer of the Week! Robin serves at Bladen and is part of the VIP team as well as helps out as needed in Waumba Land. Her whole family is such a blessing to us. Thank you, Robin, for helping make Vertical, “vertical”.
  • With this being memorial day, I just wanted to once again thank all of you who have served our country. Thank you so much for laying it all on the line for freedom. We celebrate the freedom every week at VC. You, my friends, are awesome!

I thought I would close with some of the things you all have said online today. I love you all – so thankful to be on this journey with you all.

  • @jehomrich@RoddBaxley: “It is never too late or too early to become the person that people love to be around.” Great word from @mikepittman
  • Nicole Pait Edwards  Mike P. preached an awesome message this morning that everyone should be able to relate to. If you missed it stay tuned and listen to the podcast once it is up.
  • John Astle you weren’t lyin! great stuff for all of us this morning, great job mane
  • Jon Lloyd People got SAVED at Vertical Bladen this morning! WOOOO!!!!!!!
  • Mitchell Cain They got saved at Vertical Lumberton too!!!!! WOOT WOOT!!!
  • Sonya Mcgirt Dont let the sun go down with anger! You never know if tomorrow will ever come to say you are sorry. God created us to have differences, it is how we handle our differences that matters. Communicate and show love to one another and create a place you both can meet in the middle. Family (marriages) is something the devil would love to destroy! Put a stop to it right now!!
  • John Astle “Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense” Mike P with some great advice from Proverbs 19
  • Shawn Baxley Well just want to thank god for waking me up this morning dying on the cross for my sins forgiving me went to Vertical Church this morning church was really good
  • @nanwyer@mikepittman – thank you for the great words about relationships, not just marriage! Will help me grow as a disciple! Love you!

Sunday Nite on a Monday Afternoon

It looks like we had an incredible day yesterday at Vertical. I was not in attendance as I was with my family attending my daughter Madison’s dance competition. We only do this a few times a year (praising Jesus for that – can be wide open) and I hate to be out of town like that… however, we have an AMAZING team, filled with the power of God and His leadership.

We did something a little different yesterday – 2 different communicators at 2 locations preaching different messages. As we were in a transition week between series I felt it was a good day to give Joey Autry (Bladen Location Pastor) and Jon Lloyd (Church Planting Intern, future Steel City Church Pastor) the opportunity to flex their preaching muscles. Though I haven’t heard either message yet (I will) I did have the opportunity to see what many of you said online. If you missed yesterday, here’s what you missed through the eyes of facebook/twitter. The #seriously tags are from Joey’s message – the #go tags are from Jon’s:

  • When you look back on your life will you be able to say that when God said go, I went! #go #Go #GO. @notjohnllyod

    Jon at Ltown

  • #seriously? You r not on a team just 2 play ball. You r not at ur job just 2 get a paycheck. You r there 2 make an eternal difference!
  • God made you as you are so he could use you as he planned. @notjohnllyod #faith #GO.
  • #seriously? What is ur next step? Salvation? Baptism? Reading ur bible? VERGE? VGroup? VTeam? Give? Let us help #wec96
  • God’s work in our past gives us faith for our future. #go #LTN @notjohnllyod #Abramwent
  • #seriously? Sometimes u may have to b an idiot or look bad in front of ur friends but God is calling u 2 do it.
  • #go God isn’t looking for WORTHY, God is looking for WILLING! #LTN #SCC #dontbeastatistic #setapart #Abram
  • @joeyautry Step 1: Sit & Learn. Jesus isn’t scared of your junk or your past.
  • #seriously? Step 2: Fish Deeper. God may ask u 2 do something CRAZY or 2 do something u have done 1,000 x again in a dif way
  • #BDN Step 3: Fall Down & be Broken. Serve for something that is bigger than yourself. You have influence at work, school, home.
  • Joey at BCC

    #seriously? #BDN Step 4: Follow. Some1′s next step is to drop everything and follow God’s calling.

  • #seriously? Sometimes u may have to b an idiot or look bad in front of ur friends but God is calling u 2 do it.
  • #go God isn’t looking for WORTHY, God is looking for WILLING! #LTN #SCC #dontbeastatistic #setapart #Abram
  • #go Going might mean giving something up @notjohnllyod
  • #go #LTN Going requires faith. What proof of God do u have in ur life? #evidence
  • #go #LTN God made you as you are so he could use you as he planned.
  • To learn more about how you can go further, let us help
As i said, INCREDIBLE DAY! So thankful for God’s leadership, the team He has blessed us with and the opportunity to see Him make a difference in so many lives. Thank You, Jesus. 1 Church, 2 Locations, 1 Savior!!!
