Lutheran church expanding in Stettler

Comprehensive work – The extensive renovation and expansion work at the Lutheran church necessitated the involvement of professional contractors and work is progressing at a fast pace with completion expected within two months.

St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church in Stettler is expanding its building facilities to meet the growing ministry of the church.

The addition is one floor and will add a new entryway, 24 feet onto the existing fellowship area, a prayer room, enlarged washrooms and new office space,“ said Pastor Karl Faltin.

“We expect to complete the project sometime in December.”

Work is being done under contract.

“The expansion we are doing is much too complicated for us to be able to do as volunteers,” said Pastor Faltin.

“After admirably meeting our needs for 45 years, our fellowship wing is now in need of major maintenance work.”

That includes steps to expand the kitchen, provide wheelchair access, add storage space, and replace the aging roof, windows and flooring.

With 277 baptized members, 210 adult members and an average attendance of 95 for Sunday worship service, the leaders and congregation is committed and eager to complete the expansion and upgrade that will enable the church to serve the church family and community in various ministries for children, youth, families, adults and seniors.

Established in 1927 when St. Peter Lutheran Church building relocated to Stettler from Botha, the growing congregation built a new sanctuary in 1965.
