What will VERTICAL look like this year with it being at home?
— You’ll start the day with Jesus, spending time learning about Him from the Bible and talking to Him in prayer. You will do this at your home and with follow up with your VERTICAL small group. There will be 3 days where we have offsite activities while the other 2 days everything will take place on campus.
Each day we will have small groups and breakout sessions at appointed times. We will finish up each day with dinner, night games followed by night worship. There will be snack times during our hangout times! (We know students get hungry!)
— We will eat together. Hang together. Play and compete together. Worship together. Fall in love with Jesus more together. And so much more!

Our number one goal at FS is to connect every student in a healthy small group. The reason this is a big deal to us is that we know that people need people. That’s how God designed us. We also know that spiritual growth happens best in the context of relationships, and it doesn’t happen on accident. When we connect students in a healthy small group, they have a person who cares and a place to belong. Not only that, they have a built-in support system of people who they can share their story with, keep them accountable, help them process their doubts, and encourage them as they take their next step in their walk with Christ. 

If you are not currently connected in a healthy small group, we can fix that! Simply contact us and we will get you connected with a small group this week!
