We are committed to advancing the Kingdom of God in the next generation. ALIVE is our ministry for students, 6th–12th grade, to grow in community and follow Jesus so that they will never want to walk away from their faith.

alive small groups

ALIVE small groups meet throughout the week in-person and online to build meaningful relationships and grow in their understanding of the Bible and how it applies to their lives. Groups are studying 1 and 2 Timothy with other students their age and are led by a leader who is passionate about helping advance the Kingdom of God to the next generation.
