Through online Bible study and an annual three day conference - Awake and Alive is dedicated to encouraging the faith life of young adults through encouraging, Christian community.

Join us for our monthly online Bible Study

The Christian Life - Lived Out in Captivity

Next Online Group - Sunday June 23rd - "Responding to the Letter" a unique look at the life of Daniel

Over the past few months we have been in Jeremiah 29 considering the fuller context of the famous "For I know the plans I have for you" in verse 11. That awesome promise was spoken at the BEGINNING of the Babylonian captivity in which an entire generation would likely die in captivity before their children/grand children would leave. In verse 7, God tells the captives "Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

We will continue to turn our attention to one of the people who lived out many of the principals we talked about this past semester as we dive into the book of Daniel and the story of exiles who used their lives living out the letter written to them in Jeremiah 29. We'll be spending the summer doing a slow walk through portions of the book and gleaning how we might follow Daniel's example as we too, live out our lives in a culture similar in some ways to his own.


We have people from different states join us all the time so we hope that will consider being part of the Awake and Alive community. Our upcoming schedule for the online Awake and Alive groups looks like this:

Sunday July 21st - 7:00pm Central Time Zone
Sunday August 11th - 7:00pm Central Time Zone
Sunday August 25th - 7:00pm Central Time Zone

We can't wait to dive into God's word together with you via Zoom so that you can join us from wherever your summer takes you.  Email Mike for the Zoom link at or click the link below.
