Alliance Church gives blessing to its new Stettler headquarters

Just three months after moving into a new larger home, Stettler Alliance Church officially launched its ministry last Sunday.

Stettler Alliance Church had a dedication service last Sunday morning for its new building located at 6019 — 40 Avenue. The church has a 214-seat sanctuary.

Just three months after moving into a new larger home, Stettler Alliance Church officially launched its ministry last Sunday.

“There is potential and exciting times for the future of our church, reaching the community and the world,” lead pastor Scott Whitford said during a time of dedication during the weekly morning service in the site of the former First Baptist Church of Stettler.

“We desire fruitful ministry.”

With plenty of space for classrooms and a large fellowship hall, with modern amenities, the leadership and congregation are enthusiastic about the possibilities to further reach the community and grow with various programs such as vacation Bible school.

“Internal space we now have allows for our VBS and youth to expand, as well as space to host more outreach-focused events like community events, gym nights wedding and funerals and much more,” Whitford said.

Words of dedication were also presented from the Christian and Missionary Alliance district office in Calgary.

“This is a fresh milestone, with a fresh enthusiasm with wonderful potential that this represents,” said Don Neufeld.

He encouraged the congregation to live out the mission in the community that the church is a learning, caring, worshipping and evangelizing community, extending love into the surrounding Stettler region.

With events to welcome the community, the weekend also launched the church’s various ministries that include Sunday school, youth, men’s and women’s studies and other special events throughout the year.
