How We Can Help The Afghan Refugees

As you know, the government has flown thousands of Afghan refugees to military bases in preparation for their resettlement in the U.S., thousands more are joining them every day. Can you imagine what it’s like to suddenly leave your home and try to build a new life in a completely unfamiliar place? Vertical has joined many other local organizations providing assistance to the Afghan refugees in need and we need your help. Here are some ways you can show the love of Christ to these refugees:

Financial Gift

The quickest and easiest way for you to help us welcome Afghan refugees is with a financial gift. There is a significant gap between the funding provided by the government and the actual needs of refugees, and you can help fill that gap with your gift.

$40 can provide essential baby supplies such as diapers, formula, and bottles
$60 can provide transportation assistance such as bus or gas cards
$100 can provide kitchen essentials to establish their new home


We have setup an Amazon wishlist with the essential needs requested from the Vertical Church community. All items will be donated to the local refugees at Fort Lee, Va

Who We Are

So Why “Vertical” Church

It’s so easy in our lives and in ministry to allow our focus to shift horizontal, where everything is about us, our needs, our wants, our glory, and our fame. We want this church to be centered around encouraging others to look “vertical” to Jesus. We could have the best teaching, music, and events, but without Christ, we have nothing to offer. We want Vertical Church to be a ministry consumed with offering the hope and life that is only found in a vertical experience with our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Community Groups

Community Groups at Vertical Church are about pursuing Jesus Christ in the context of community. We believe that Jesus calls us to not only gather corporately for worship but also to love, serve, and do life deeply with other believers. Made up of men and women from all generations of life, these groups gather weekly to enjoy a meal, build friendships, study the Word of God, engage in the mission, and grow in Christ.

To get more information about Community Groups, be sure to visit the Connection Center before or after service, or feel free to reach out to Pastor Dave or any of our CG leaders!
