What to expect
When you come to Church Alive you will quickly find a warm, friendly group of people committed to making church exciting, enjoyable, and most of all, life-changing. Its never easy to visit a new church so we want to be as helpful as we can to make sure your experience is a good one. Our goal is to remove the "awkard" so you can relax and enjoy the presence of Jesus.
We invite you to come early, grab a cup of coffee, tea or orange juice, get a bagel, or muffin and get to know some of the friendly folks at Church Alive.
Ok, thankfully we won't be sporting as cheesy of smiles as these folks, but we hope you get the idea. For us two things get us real excited on a Sunday morning: seeing God do big things in the lives of people, and having company. You can expect to be warmly greeted and treated with respect. You'll likely be offered a handshake or two and we'll make ourselves available for any questions you might have during your visit. People at our church really like coming together, it's a highlight of our week - thus the smiles. We warn you though...enjoying church and making friends tends to be wildly contagious at Church Alive.
At Church Alive, worship is an integral part of our community experience. We don't think of it as sing-a-long time, or just another part of the program. We believe in genuine, thoughtful, intentional, and passionate worship in it's various forms. While we have live upbeat worship with guitars, keyboard, drums - lights...the works, as well as more intimate songs of worship, you'll find there is only room for one person in the spotlight - Jesus. Everyone worships in their own unique way – for many, that means singing & clapping, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words. You’re welcome to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable. As part of our worship experience, about once a month we share in communion and regularly take time to greet others and get to know new people. Our vision of worship is not limited to music and singing. We believe that all of our gifts and talents were given to glorify God and to bless the community.
We believe the Bible is very applicable for the day and culture in which we live and we place a high value on the authority of scripture for our lives. Every weekend, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your everyday life. We trust that these messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.
We love children...kids are crazy important to us! We are super excited about kids from the moment they walk in the door.
Once a month, we celebrate communion together. We invite anyone who has made a decision to follow Jesus to participate in this time of reflection and prayer. The juice and bread that we share represent the life He gave up so that our sins could be forgiven. We also have special prayer for the sick and those with specific needs.
After most every service Pastor Tim invites those who would like to accept Jesus as Lord as well as those desiring special prayer to the front. Our trained Elders and their wives join him and Pastor Mimi as they pray and minister to all those with needs.

Everyone is asked to fill out a Connection Card during the service. It can be placed in the offering plate or taken to the Welcome Center for a FREE GIFT. You can also find out more about the ministries and beliefs of our church.

Please pick your children up as soon as service is over. For their safety we cannot release them to anyone except the parents.
