Jeff’s Blog: Gearing Up For Fall

Hey Alive Church, I love to always start off with great news: last weekend there were 8 people who made commitments to follow Jesus at Alive. That never ever, ever gets old!!! I love to see us living out the mission of Jesus and the church. We also had an incredible amount of first time guest – all the result of us partnering together – you all are awesome!

If you are like our family we are focusing in on getting the kids ready for the fall session of school to start and all the last minute things that go along with that. It is so hard to believe that summer has almost passed us by. Although my kids keep saying they are bored. (Wish the heat would go a fast as summer)

Here at Alive Church we are in full swing getting ready for fall. We have a Big Day planned for Sept.17/18 as we launch our weekend series called Courageous. We are working in co-operation with the movie company as they release the movie Courageous on Sept. 30th. (Same folks who produced Fireproof) Our goal that weekend is that we double in attendance by continuing to partner together to live out our mission of “leading people who are far from God to be followers of Jesus.” Our Big Day will be just that! We will have jumping castles for the kids, a Beast Feast at all our services (An Alive way of saying BBQ) and we will be buying a couple of theaters out for you to get a ticket for you and your friends to go to see the movie Courageous.

Last weekend we began our weekend series called Exponential with a talked called A Compounding Life. If you missed the beginning of this series, check it out on line. I promise you as you commit to being a part of this talk series and you allow God to speak into your life that you will grow Exponentially over the next several weeks in your spiritual journey.

We are also gearing up for our fall Life Group semester that will launch in coordination with the Courageous series. We still have opportunities for 6 more Life Group leaders and host. Just let me know you are interested on your connection card at the services.

This weekend I will continue the series Exponential with a talk call My Life To The Power Of Relationships. Take a moment and invite a friend, they will be glad you did.
