From all walks of life, our middle school and high school students come together to be connected and transformed in community. VIVE provides a dynamic environment for our students to engage in the life-changing power of the gospel through "all-in" living, through radical friendship and creative expression.
When VIVE gathers, our students can expect a few things. Every VIVE gathering has a time of live worship and times spent together engaging with the Scriptures. Everything we do is geared toward experiencing the living God and learning how to engage with Him.
We also make having fun together a huge priority. Our students come ready to connect not just with God, but with each other as well. We set aside special time to play games, goof off and hang out.
As long as COVID-19 is a concern, our students can expect to wear masks when indoors and social distance as necessary. Weather permitting, we'll meet together outside as often as we can. We'll be careful to make sure proper sanitation and check-in measures are in place as well. The safety of our students is our top priority.
Finally, our students can expect to partner, once a month, with our friends over at Thrive Vineyard in Palatine. Jesus is doing cool things all over the Chicagoland area, and it's even cooler when we can partner with Jesus together. We'll even be exploring the same topics and sermon series. Thrive and VIVE are "one family, two locations."
