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:

It’s really common that once a church launches, those who made up the Core Team leave only a few months after Launch Sunday. Some leave because of unmet expectations, others leave because they don’t like new people coming in and “ruining the church,” and some people leave because they are just flat-out exhausted from planting a church. 
 
Let’s take a minute and thank God that this has not been our experience. Nearly everyone who helped launch the church is still actively worshiping, walking, and working at Vertical Church. Praise the Lord!

Prayer Requests:

This week let’s pray for our first church plant, The Brook Community Church, being planted this fall by Seth and Hannah Martin.  
 
The Brook Community Church exists to see people refreshed through connecting to Jesus, Others, and Purpose.  
 
Let’s pray the prayer that planted Vertical Church on behalf of The Brook: “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” – Luke 10:2

Also, would you ask the Lord right now how you can personally get involved with planting The Brook Community Church?

Housekeeping:

  • Important Planning Center Online Information:
    We've begun our new system of sending out Planning Center serving requests for one month at a time. Thank you to everyone who has already responded to the requests for the rest of January! If you haven't yet viewed your serving requests, please make sure to do so this week. We're so grateful for this body of willing believers ready to serve one another.
     

  • We praise God for your sacrificial generosity which sustained Vertical Church in 2018. We have seen people give joyfully, consistently, and generously to ensure this good, gospel work is fully funded every month. Thank you.
