  • Relational Evangelism is one of our core values here at ALIVE, and it means we “intentionally leverage our influence in the world for the purpose of introducing people to the transforming love of Christ”


  • Where do you spend most of your time during the week? What activities or efforts demand the majority of your energy and attention? 


  • Whether it comes from a co-worker, a friend, a sibling, or someone from my small group—this question always throws me off.  It breaks up the pattern of my perfunctory “I’m fines” and pushes me to respond thoughtfully, honestly And that is what makes authentic community so uncomfortable. 


  • Over the past week, we have made significant progress to our parking lot and worship space. Continual improvements are taking place such as resurfacing our parking lot. Giving our parking lot a facelift is a simple way for us to make our outdoor spaces more durable and attractive. This project also helps us create excellent environment in preparation for guests. 
     


  • We don’t make decisions in a vacuum and every “personal” choice we make has implications for those closest to us. And this can be a really awesome thing.
