Relocated in its new neighbourhood, Stettler Alliance Church opens its doors to a community open house this Friday night and Saturday.

Events include a community barbecue, food, fun and fellowship.

“After a season of renovations that is nearly complete, we want our whole community to know that our doors are open, and part of our overall purpose as a church is to connect better with our greater community and help truly make Stettler the heart of Alberta,” said the church’s lead pastor, Scott Whitford.

Festivities begin Friday at 7 p.m. with family fun, refreshments and tours of the building at 6109 — 41 Avenue, just west of the Tot Lot.

Activities on Saturday begin at 3 p.m. with more family activities and games, followed by barbecue at 5:30 p. m, and tours of the building at 7 p.m.

“This will also kick off our new year of ministries for children, youth, families, and adults of all ages,” Whitford said. “We want to let people know that our congregation and facilities are open to the community.”

A special time to dedicate the new location will be the focus of the Sunday service at 10:30 a.m., with various messages of congratulations planned.

To meet the growing congregation, Stettler Alliance Church relocated from Highway 12 on the east side of town and purchased the property of the former First Baptist Church of Stettler.

The first Sunday service in the new location was on June 2.
