Summer Nights Start Next Week

One Week Til We’re Back!


We can’t wait for June 9 — our SUMMER KICK OFF.

If you’re wondering what opportunities there are for students this summer, look no further! Here’s our schedule!

June 9 — Summer Kick Off: Party on the Pavement

We’re kicking things off on June 9 with a party night we’re calling, “Party on the Pavement.” Right here at the church building, we’ll have lots of outdoor games to celebrate the summer. We’ll end the night with snacks & relaxing together!

What about the rest of the summer?

Great question! Our schedule is below:

Our Summer Program will look a little different than our school year ministry calendar. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Our usual Sunday night gatherings will stay at the same time (6-7:30 pm) per the survey that we took earlier this year! (Thanks for everyone who participated!)

    • Most nights will include a lot of the same elements from during the school year, including Bible teaching, games, and snacks, but we’ll focus more on building relationships and hanging out to match the relaxed vibe of summer!

    • Some nights will have a THEME that is communicated earlier in the week

  • In addition, because summer usually means more free time, we might also have a few grassroots hangouts — whether it be going out to eat, having an impromptu movie night, etc — be on the lookout for those!

  • And of course, our students who registered for Crossroads SummerCamp will be gone the week of July 15-19, so we won’t have student ministry that week on the July 14 in order to be prepared for that!

I have a 5th grader who’s moving up into 6th grade — when can they start attending VS?

Now! If you’re student is graduating 5th grade and heading into 6th grade, they are now allowed to come out to any student ministry activity other than summercamp!

We want them to get as comfortable with other students & leaders at VS as quickly as possible, so the best time for them to start coming is over the summer!

If I graduated high school, am I allowed to still come to VS over the summer?

If you graduated high school this year, you are welcome to come to all VS events until the end of summer!

We also want to invite all graduating seniors to join our college/young adult small group on Wednesday nights!

What time/date will Vertical Students be at over the summer?

We’ll keep meeting from 6:00 - 7:30 pm over the summer. Occasionally, we may have off-site events, such as a pool party or movie night, but when we do, we’ll communicate about those events with specific times + details!
