Crews are Alive Family Church's small groups. We believe that a Crew turns a crowd into a community, and we encourage everyone who calls Alive Family Church home to be in a Crew. Life is more fun in a crew, and life-change happens in the context of community. 

We have Crews available for people of all seasons of life to connect. We have Winter Crews (that meet Feb.-May), Summer Crews (that meet June-August), and Fall Crews (that meet Sept.-Dec.). If you are looking to find "your people" and want to plug into Alive more - Crews is for you!

Current Summer Crew are listed below! Email to join one!



TIME & LOCATION: Every Tuesday evening (6-8pm) | from Maltby to downtown

CREW LEADERS: Bill & Kelly Albert 

INFO: Does a weekly walk uptown for coffee/tea with friends sound like fun for you?! This crew is open to anyone who wants to get a few mile walk once a week to get more connected with others at Alive. This crew will meet at the Maltby Middle School parking lot and walk downtown, grab an ice tea or a coffee and walk back.


TIME & LOCATION: Saturday Morning Trainings (Blueberry 5K in South Haven on August 11th)

CREW LEADERS: Regina Roberts & Christina Giordano 

INFO: 5K crew for ALL fitness levels, teens/adults. From no experience to very experienced runners. Positive environment where all are welcomed and encouraged. Where the last one in is celebrated as much as the first one in. It's not about winning a medal but about winning your personal race. If you run, you're a runner. No matter how slow, if you move forward on a specific course with the intent of finishing a certain distance, you are a success. Our goal is to start, have fun, and finish with no injuries! We will train in Brighton and race in South Haven on Saturday, August 11th at the Blueberry Festival 5K! Signing up for the actual 5K is optional. You can train and not race if you choose to. Some of us plan to make race day a family beach day after the morning race. Preliminary meet up to get schedules after church on June 10th in Growth Track room. 10-15 minutes unless people have questions.
