Plan Ahead for TWO ON TUESDAYS! - Small Group Adult Bible Study
Join us for our new midweek Bible study, Two on Tuesdays! This study meets at 2 pm on the first and third Tuesdays each month.
If you would like more information, or have any suggestions for topics or texts you would like to cover, please let Pastor know.
Hebrews 10:25, "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
Adult Bible Classes are the perfect way to do this!
Head Usher - Alive! Lutheran is in need of a head usher. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity and speak with Scott Ludwig or Pastor Lieske if interested in being the head usher.
Board of Elders - Alive! Lutheran is in need of more elders. We currently have only two. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity and speak with Head Elder Scott Ludwig, Elder Ed Swingley or Pastor Lieske if interested in being an elder.
Drivers Wanted - Anyone who can provide a ride to and from church for some of our members, please let Pastor Lieske know.
Technical Team (Audio/Visual/Computer) - Running the computer (PowerPoint, etc.) & sound system at church. We currently have one individual, Josh McDermott, fulfilling all these tasks when needed. We would like to have at least 1 or 2 more people who can help out when needed. Any computer competent persons (teens or adults) are encouraged to respond! Please contact Josh McDermott or speak with Pastor Lieske if this is of interest to you.
Play an instrument? Like to sing? Share your talents during worship and/or at special times during the church year. Please let Lois Mitchell (763-295-2577) or Pastor Lieske know if you are interested in sharing your musical talents at Alive!
Follow Alive! on Facebook and invite your friends, too!
Electronic Giving (ACH) via LCEF's Joyful Response Program
Please consider signing up for Joyful Response, the electronic giving of offerings (ACH). Signing up is easy, and makes the giving process seamless for you and the church. For those who like to “drop” something in the collection plate each week, we have Joyful Response cards on the counter as you enter the narthex. Or use your offering envelopes with one of the cards in it. Simply write ACH on the outside. Joyful Response applications are available in the narthex on the information counter along with envelopes and labels for submitting the completed form, with a voided check enclosed, to the Treasurer. If you have concerns or questions, please contact our Treasurer, Kevin Steinbronn.
"...because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ..."- Ephesians 2:4-5

Please utilize the publications in the narthex (Portals of Prayer, Lutheran Witness & more) and take a copy home today!
We have received a free supply of Lutheran Hour Ministries, Memorial and Special Occasion cards. They are available for you on the counter in the narthex next to the literature rack.
