Welcome to Alive! Lutheran Church!  We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) located in Monticello, Minnesota.  Alive! is a place where lives are transformed, friendships and created and strengthened, tears are shed, laughter is heard, songs are sung, but most importantly, Christ is proclaimed and God is glorified!

Our Mission


We're here to bring Jesus to people and bring people to Jesus by the proclamation of God's Word, the receiving of His gifts, and the working of the Holy Spirit among us.  The result of all of this is transforming lives with Christ's life!
