Alive Alive! News
  New Photo Directory Coming - Photos being accepted now

"Do we have a member directory?"..."Can you point out Mary to me?"..."Do you know Sue's phone number/address/e-mail?"..."When are we going to get a new photo directory?"  These are just some of the questions asked when wanting to identify or contact a fellow member.  Plans are in motion for a new photo directory that will be published in 2016 (currently planning for around Easter).  In the past, everyone liked that we used personal photos which captured them or their family in happy moments (i.e., Christmas, weddings, special occasions, etc.).  We will be doing the same this time around.  To have your family's photo included in the directory, please e-mail a photo that you feel best portrays you and/or your family to (new email address for church office).

Upper body and head shots will work best for the directory.  E-mailed photos need to be in JPEG format.  The preferred method for submission of photos is via e-mail; however, if you do not have access to e-mail, please send your photo to Chantelle Kiphuth at 2772 85th St NE, Monticello, MN 55362 or drop it off at church in her mail bin in the narthex.  The photo will be returned to you once scanned for the directory.  Members who do not have a photo to submit and would like one in the directory, we will arrange to have someone from the congregation take pictures at church sometime in early 2016 (dates will be announced in the weekly bulletin).  Members who choose not to have a photo included in the directory, please note that the contact information currently on file with the church for you and your family will still be in the directory, albeit sans photo.
As with all things, there is a cost associated with this project.  If you want to help offset the cost of printing the photo directory, you may do so in one of two ways.
1) Members who own a business will have the opportunity to place an eighth page business ad (1.875”x2”) in the directory for $25.  Make checks payable to Alive! Lutheran Church with “Photo Directory Ad” in the memo section.  Please e-mail your ad copy to Michele Hertwig at   
2) Donations of any amount towards the printing costs will also be accepted.  Please make checks payable to Alive! Lutheran Church with "Evangelism / Photo Directory" in the memo section.
In both instances, members are encouraged to use the Designated Offering envelopes located in the envelope rack on the counter as you enter the sanctuary.
Deadlines for submission of photos and ads will be communicated in future bulletins and newsletters once determined.  If you have questions or to update your contact information, please contact the following: for photos and member contact information - Chantelle Kiphuth ( or call/text 612-386-9616); for business ads - Michele Hertwig ( or call/text 763-234-5341).

  Alive! Cookbooks - Only $5!

A great gift for any occasion, the cookbook includes some of the best recipes you can find in any Lutheran congregation.  All proceeds support Alive! youth activities.  Copies are on the counter in the narthex.  Please make checks payable to Alive! Christian Teens or ACT, and leave in the ACT mail bin.  (Please use the “Designated Gift” envelopes for cash and checks.)
