Summer Offerings

Greetings Participants, Parents, and Followers of VI,

It is crazy to think that we are half-way through June already!  I wanted to make sure that we are all on the same page for what the rest of June looks like for Vertical Impact.

  • There will be NO VI this coming Wednesday (6/19) Between VBS, stretched adult leaders, and uncertain weather thus far this summer, I thought it best to have a break over VBS week. 
  • On Wednesday, June 26th we are making up for our break by hosting a field and worship night at the Radio Range Park! Youth should be dropped off and picked up from the park. Normal time from 7-9. Dinner will be provided that night. We will be playing some field games (cornhole, Ultimate Frisbee, Kan-jam, there is room to hike, and furry friends who socialize well with others and are on a leash are encouraged! We also ask that during the summer youth come prepared to be outside with bug spray and sunscreen. We will spend our evening having fun at Radio Range Park and then close our night with some acoustic worship led by our wonderful Worship Leader Caroline Perry.  (Radio Range Park is just past the Armstrong Cemetery on Indian Hill Rd.)
  • Then on Friday, June 28th join us for Jumpalaloza as we head to Anderson Townships Skyzone from 7-9pm for some jumping, dodgeball, obstacle course fun! Cost for this event is $23, you can pay ahead of time online, or bring money with you. There is an online waiver that MUST be filled out before arrival. Skyzone does not take paper copies of this waiver and you cannot jump, youth or adult, without this waiver on file. Those youth interested in going make sure this waiver is filled out before arriving. Those who need a ride contact Rebecca and rides can be arranged!  WAIVER LINK
  • Last but not least! On July 3rd I am inviting all youth, adult leaders, and parents out to our lovely little home in Loveland for a cookout. John and I are providing hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, and drinks. If you and/or your youth plan on attending please RSVP by July 2nd and bring a dish to share!  When you RSVP you will be provided with the address. RSVP to    

I will try my hardest to keep you up-to-date on our summer happenings here at VI this summer! Remember to check us out for news, updates, and fun on Instagram @vertical_impact and also note that our Missions Snack Shop is open all summer long on Wednesday's and Sundays. Stop by to buy some VI swag, get a snack, or put some money on a youth's account! Card, check, and cash is accepted. 100% or all proceeds on snack items will be going to local mission and outreach organizations here in Cincinnati. 

As Always,
Be A Blessing!
