We believe God has called us to be a multiplying church that trains up and sends out leaders to share the Gospel. Chris and Alex Asmus are now serving in St. Paul, MN. Here are some updates from Chris and Alex about Vertical Church St. Paul.

Praise Reports:

This weekend is 100% Sunday for one main reason: baptisms! A few people in our church are taking the next step in their faith by getting baptized. Let’s praise God for the faith and obedience of these brothers and sisters in Christ! 
 
“Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” 
- Acts 2:38 
 
If you want to get baptized this weekend, there’s still time! Contact Emily today.

Prayer Requests:

Last weekend we were invited into the global mission of God. God has given us an opportunity to partner with the Thom family for the name and fame of Jesus Christ in the Horn of Africa. 
 
This weekend we will take up a special offering to support the Thom family. Please prayerfully consider bringing a generous offering for Christ's global, gospel cause. 
 
And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.” 
- 1 Corinthians 8:1-4

  • Giving: Praise the Lord! God used you to give $3,802 so far this month. We are so thankful for His provision!
    As the ministry grows, so do our needs. For the month of February our giving goal is $11,000. No dollar is better spent than when it’s spent for the name and fame of Jesus Christ.
