  • To Friends and Family:

    Merry Christmas; our church just burned down.

    There’s a sentence I never thought I’d use, but it’s what has happened. Just a few days before Christmas, one of the two buildings of Stony Plain Alliance Church has been destroyed by fire. For those not familiar with it, this building housed the church...

    God’s purpose for my life is much simpler than I make it out to be! I spend my day filling it with things to do helping others, running kids to and from their activities, working, coaching, parent teacher interviews, putting away too many things into already full closets at home, washing too many pots and kitchen gadgets, doing the laundry...

    I'd like to say something cheesy, like it's been an honour to be part of this wonderful group over the last couple of years and watch these tender hearts grow and blossom, but the truth is, that would be an understatement.

    Whitestone is not a youth group to me. When I think of that term I think of something more like a club, kids that come...

  • Rob Davidson, Grade 7 Boys Youth Leader, was asked to speak about the October 2016 youth retreat, student engagement and the youth community at our Fall Converge meeting in November. Here's an excerpt from his talk.

    I've led the last five men's retreat, but this was the first youth retreat I've gone to, so I wasn't sure what to expect. We had a...

    My husband Kendyl and I (Shoshanna) have been attending Stony Plain Alliance since moving here from Calgary just over a year ago. Looking back, it’s clear that God had a purpose when He directed us to a new town.

    Only a few months before we decided that we would be moving here, Kendyl was accepted for a job here that he did not recall...

    How often have you had the chance to immediately respond to Sunday’s message? This Sunday, as Pastor Linda was teaching on how we are “service-minded” when “Sally”, a wife and mother of young children, noticed that one of the ladies in the congregation was struggling. Sally approached the woman at the end of the...

    On Monday, October 17 th Ralph Jespersen, went home to be with the Savior. He was one of the SPAC originals dating back to 1939. He was wise, grace-filled and Christ focused. Ralph and Bernice have been faithful to Jesus and to SPAC, still praying through our church directory for families. And even though he was 92, Ralph always advocated for a...

    As the intoxicated Native couple staggered along the road, Tim prayed. What was God asking him to do in that moment? How could he be a part of God's bigger plan?

    We are creatures of habit, especially when it comes to getting ready for work. For the most part, we do things at the same way at the same time every day. But what if God took you on a detour one morning? Would you hear Him? Would you recognize what He was calling you to in that moment? On July 2nd Juliette Carter found herself on a God ordained detour and followed His lead.
