We know visiting a new church can be a little awkward. So, here are answers to some typical questions we get.
Where Are Services Held?
We are located at 276 Simpson Hwy 28 East in Magee. We are one mile outside of the city limits of Magee on the left of Hwy 28 as if you were going towards Mize or Laurel.
What If I’m Running Late?
Being on time is important, but occasionally we are all late for something. Don’t sweat it. Our greeters and hostess at our Welcome Center will be there to greet you and to answer any questions you may have.
How Should I Dress?
No need to feel like you have to dress up. Dress comfortably, but modestly please.
We have a wide variety of every age, ethnic and economic group. Singles of all ages, families with children and teenagers and single parent families are welcome here.
What Is the Music Like?
Our music is contemporary praise and worship and is scripturally based. We have a full band that consists of guitars, drums, etc. We place a lot of emphasis on worship because it prepares our hearts to receive what the Lord has for us.
What Am I Expected To Do?
Expect there to be no expectations. There’s nothing special you need to know ahead of time. We hope you enjoy the worship, learn from the teaching and meet and connect with some new friends.
What Are The Messages Like?
Pastor Gene is a teacher and he is all about life transformation, not just the transmission of information. At Church Alive, we believe in applying Scripture to real life and never compromising God’s truth. You won’t find watered-down teachings here, but teachings that will change your life and make your relationship and walk with the Lord stronger.
How Long Are The Services?
We start at 10:00am and typically end between 11:30am and noon.
If I Like It, How Do I Get Involved?
If you feel Church Alive is the place for you then we encourage you to sign up for our Open Door class. This will answer all your questions about what Church Alive is about and will get you on the fast track of getting involved. Open Door is held once per quarter after service and is taught by our pastoral team of Church Alive. It provides a simple overview of what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. You’ll discover how we operate, what we believe, how we equip servant leaders, and how we seek to take our ministry and mission to the community and around the world. A great meal and relaxing fellowship is also part of the package. Childcare is provided, so you won’t have to worry about that. If you are considering making Church Alive your home, this course can transform you from an attendee to a family member.
How Big Is Your Vision for Church Growth?
Our vision is as wide as it is deep, and our goal is to continually reach out to our community and share the love of Jesus. We will always be growing. Our desire is to faithfully serve and minister to all that God sends to us this week, next week, and in the years to come.
What About my Children?
Children are highly valued at Church Alive. We believe in taking each service to minister to the children at their age level by providing solid and exciting teaching and, of course, a lot of fun. Our desire is to help assist you as parents by encouraging your children to have intimate fellowship with their Heavenly Father.
What About Youth Services?
At 7:00pm on Wednesdays, our Rush Student Ministries meets for a time of worship, teaching and fellowship.
What About Small Groups?
We call our small groups “Life Groups” around Church Alive. Our spring semester starts in February and ends in May, and our fall semester begins in September and ends in December. We have multiple groups that meet at various times and cover different subject matter. Also, we have a Life Group that meets at the church on Wednesdays for parents who have youth who don’t drive. We’re sure you’ll find a group that is right for you!
