The Seed Project

A PLENTIFUL HARVEST OF NEW LIVES... 30, 60, 100x what was planted!
This is what we long for and continue to pray for at StAAC!

St. Albert Alliance Church has never been about a building - we are all about seeing people grow up into mature, fruit-bearing apprentices of Jesus Christ in the now-available Kingdom of God! This is what "The Seed Project" is fundamentally about.
 
Among many strategies, we believe that God is inviting us to pursue a newly imagined facility that will help continue to posture us for effectively sowing the seeds of the Kingdom.

WHY 

There comes a point in every faith journey where a decision to commit is required. After a considerable season of deliberate exploration and careful preparation, insightful questions and honest answers, wise feedback and collaborative refinement – all in a posture of prayer and expectation – eventually the time comes where a decision is required.
 
This is exactly where we find ourselves as a church family. After nearly 6 years of praying, preparing, and planning, we are on the cusp of a new chapter in our building redevelopment effort – The Seed Project. It’s decision time.
 
 

COMMITMENT

What am I being asked to commit to?
Pray. Listen to Jesus. Make a 3-year financial faith commitment to the Seed Project in obedience to Jesus’ direction.
When should I make my faith commitment?
We are asking that 3-year commitments be made at any point throughout the month of October. This will help us discern the financial viability of moving to the construction phase in early 2019.
Why a 3-year commitment?
1) It demonstrates the financial will of the congregation for the Seed Project in tangible form.
 
2) Our denominational leadership requires it before it will grant approval for construction.*
 
3) 3 years allows us the potential for sufficient financial capital to be raised while still keeping the time frame manageable.
 
* Our denomination requires congregations to have 1/3 of the total project in cash, 1/3 of the total project in 3-year faith commitments, and 1/3 of the total project can be managed through a mortgage.

Ensuring Your Legacy Seminar
WHEN: December 3  
Do you have a will or estate plan? If you answered NO you are not alone – about 25% of Canadians have a current will. For many people, the obstacles to beginning the process can be a matter of knowledge. Everyone should be comforted by the knowledge that their family will be well cared for in any eventuality, but not everyone knows what to do to create a will or estate plan. 
It’s never too early, or too late to begin this process. FREE TO ATTEND
