car trouble

So my 02 civic lx was running fine besides a random misfire every once in a while, I took it to the shop today to get it fixed, they replaced the spark plugs and ignition coils and did some throttle body service but didn't specify exactly what. Anyways the car was running fine no misfires or anything, but when I was parked in a parking lot waiting to meet up with a friend the car started running rough and then my radio cut off and them my gauges stopped working and then the engine bogged down and died, all in that order. Now the car won't start without a jump and then only runs for about five minutes then bogs down and dies. Please help me fix this

I can hear the fuel pump kick on when I turn the key to the on position so I don't think its that

Alternator. Take it to autozone or advance discount and they will test it for your for free. But pretty sure that's what it is.

U can even test the alternator from home by disconnecting of the terminals from the battery, if it shuts off then that's the problem
