We acknowledge with respect the history, spirituality, and culture of the Indigenous peoples with whom Treaty 6 was signed and the territory on which our church gathers and resides. We embrace our responsibility as Treaty members. We celebrate the stewardship of this land by our neighbours, Paul First Nation, Enoch Cree Nation, Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, Alexander Cree Nation and all First Nations, Metis, and Inuit who have gone before us. We recognize the land we are called to care for as an act of reconciliation and gratitude. May we live with respect on this land, and live in peace and friendship with all who share it.
Stony Plain Alliance Church (SPAC) is a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance and is home to over 300 families in the Tri-Region area of Stony Plain, Spruce Grove and Parkland County. SPAC began in 1938 with approximately 50 people gathered in the “Red and White” building on Main Street.
Within a few years, land was purchased in downtown Stony Plain and a building was constructed. This was the home for all church gatherings until the late 1970s when the building underwent a major addition. In 1993, the adjacent Alberta Government liquor store was purchased and converted into an auditorium for Sunday services. The original building became the Family Centre, housing offices, children and youth ministry spaces, and gatherings during the week.
In December 2016 the Family Centre was lost in a fire. New offices were rented in a nearby professional building and Sunday services took place in a school in Spruce Grove. The auditorium, unaffected by the fire, continued to be used for gatherings during the week.
In April 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we celebrated the opening of our new building in Stony Plain, welcoming all of the Tri-region area.
We appreciate our rich 80-year history and continue to lean into God’s leading for today.
