Life is better when it is lived in relationship with others. Vertical Church Community Groups are small groups of people from all ages, stages, and walks of life who spend time together around the shared life of Jesus, studying His Word and encouraging one another to live out His principles.

Members of Community Groups are known, loved, cared for, encouraged, and challenged to be more like Jesus. Come join a Community Group and let’s do life together!

Women’s Bible Study on Colossians

This Bible study meets online through Zoom the first and third Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30pm for fellowship and the opportunity to study God’s Word together.  Although the Zoom format was originally started due to Covid,  we have continued in this format because it allows the flexibility for us to meet when we are travelling, when there is bad weather, or when life just gets busy.  We simply log in from any location!  The format is an inductive study, as we ask the Holy Spirit to guide us as we examine (individually and as a group) the context, interpretation, and application of the text.  No matter where you are in your faith walk, an inductive study will help deepen your understanding of God’s Word as we share and learn from one another.

Leaders: Cathy Scholz  & Beverly Bright 

 Although the group is currently full, if you are interested in starting an inductive study, do not hesitate to reach out to Cathy or Bev.  We would be happy to help you get started! We have been richly blessed by learning more about God’s Word, as well as the tremendous fellowship and friendships that have developed!


Confidential Bible Study for Forgiven and Set Free for women who are suffering from guilt and shame due to an abortion in the past. Call Vickie at 404-451-9462 for more information. You are not alone!
