I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Awake and Alive Winter Break 2015

Awake and Alive kicks off the new year on January 11th 2015 with a great event for the college age and young professionals in SE Wisconsin.  Come and join us starting at 6pm for a chance to kick back and relax with friends and food.  The main session with live music from the Awake and Alive band and the session topic of "Freedom".  We're praying for a generation of 18-25 year olds that are asking God to wake them up to and remind them of their greatest identity as a child of God and the courage to come alive to living out that identity on their campuses, in their work places, families and neighborhoods that more people would find the freedom promised through Jesus.  We hope you will join us!

When: 6:00pm January 11th, 2015

Where: At "The Bridge" on the grounds of St. Paul's Lutheran in Muskego.  S66 W14325 Janesville Rd, Muskego, WI 53150
Awake and Alive

What: Awake and Alive Winter Break 2015.

6:00pm - 7:00pm:  $2 dinner with the ever awesome "Mary Burger" (brats, barbeque and good!), veggies, and the fixings.

7:00pm - 8:15pm:  Main Session with live music from the Awake and Alive band, icebreaker and interactive session talk.  The Session topic for this year is "Freedom"

8:15pm - 10:00pm:  deserts, games, community stuff... bonfire?  In January?

Who: Anyone in college, or out of college.  Young professionals, single people, couples, newly married, Seniors in High School... if you are 18ish to 25ish, this event is for you!


* It's a great place to meet new people.

* If you haven't tried a Mary Burger, then you need to come.

* What else is there to do in the middle of January?

* Those that came over the summer, wanted to see us do this again sooner than later!

* Come away encouraged by what God's word has to say to you.

* It's a great place for people hoping to see the better side of what the 18-25 generation can be about!

* We have GREAT volunteers

* Have you seen Alex Bennet and Marshall Holm play guitar?

* The Awake and Alive band is Amazing!

* MC Jack Albert is going to be in Greece so he put Steve Avery and Mike Krill in charge of MC'ing the night... you won't want to miss that!

Best of all, because Jesus is the center of why we do this.  To be reminded of our best and truest identity as a child of God, asking God to help us live it out in the everyday.  To be encouraged by other people who are at different places in this time of grace called "life".  To go deeper into God's word applying it to our lives in this generation and that through Christ, we might reach one more with life to the full - Jesus!

GJ - I never write "Winter" Break at any school where I teach. As long as people get Christmas presents instead of Winter presents, I will call it the Christmas break.
