Imagine a community defined by it’s generosity.
A community that’s more concerned with giving back than receiving. A community that’s focused on justice instead of judgement. We believe the church should lead the way in the effort to bring a community like this to life. Sadly, we have to imagine a movement like this because it’s been so long since we’ve seen one. Rather than leading the way, the church has been comfortable with gathering instead of going.
For far too long, the church has been known for what it’s against. We want to be known for what we are for. At Vertical Church, we’re putting our money where our mouth is in being for a community, not just in one. Through launching For Madison, we want to erase the question in our county, “do I matter?” by answering it with a hands-on “yes”. And while these efforts may start with us, they continue with you. Because this movement isn’t for us; it’s for Madison.

How can you help?
We are currently setting up partnerships with local organizations – Nonprofits and businesses in our county that our committed to supporting our community. We will update this page as our partnerships grow.
In the meantime, we suggest that you consider ways to serve our community organically. Take your money and resources and solve a person’s problem. Volunteer to coach a little league baseball team. Grab a group of people and meet someone’s physical need.Organize an outdoor movie night for your neighborhood. Ask a local business how you could help them by doing a service for free. Do anything that helps people understand that they have value.
