FAQ

Entering a new space and community can be daunting. We want to ease your mind by offering answers to some of the questions you might have about our worship gathering, our church community and the ways we build relationships with one another.

How do I find out what's happening?


Head to our EVENTS page to see our calendar and register for upcoming events.




What should I expect on a Sunday morning?


We hope that when you arrive at our building, you will feel welcome from the moment you walk in. We have a team of people ready to answer your questions, direct you where to go, and make you feel at home. Our WORSHIP GATHERING usually runs about 70 min and we encourage you to stay in our lobby or cafe to visit afterwards.




What is your community like?


The Tri-Region area of Parkland County has a population of over 80,000 and encompasses the city of Spruce Grove, the town of Stony Plain, and our rural population. The region is well known for its beautiful parks, trails and natural areas, and provides everything from u-picks to golf courses, farmers markets and greenhouses. Located approximately 20 minutes west of the City of Edmonton, Parkland County is a vibrant and robust community that offers idyllic country charm while remaining close to city amenities. The region strongly supports the arts and culture and provides numerous opportunities to celebrate its diversity of age and interests throughout the year. While many residents commute to Edmonton for work, our region also strongly supports small businesses along with a few big-box stores, and the agricultural industry continues to be significant in our area. The average age in Parkland County is 38 years with families in our region accounting for 36% of our population.




How is your leadership structured?


SPAC is led by a Lead Pastor and governed by a Board of Elders, made up of approximately 10 people, who meet monthly. The Lead Pastor and the Board Chair meet regularly and collaborate to provide leadership to the staff and the Board of Elders. The Board of Elders functions as a governance board that provides leadership and oversight on organizational health and strategic direction of the church, while entrusting the operational management of the church to the Lead Pastor. The Lead Pastor, together with the Executive Pastor, lead all ministry, administrative and operational staff.




Who is Jesus and how can I learn more about him?


We're so glad you asked! We have a group designed specifically for people exploring questions of life and faith. Head over to our ALPHA page to find out about the next available opportunity.




How can I get myself or my family connected?


We are all about intentional community. We want to help you find people to who will help you on your apprenticeship journey with Jesus. Our TOGETHER page is where you can find demographic-specific information on groups, events, and way to get connected.
