My wife and were at a fundraiser the other night for Smoky Lake Baptist. They have bought a new building, an old milk plant, and are making it their new church building. Below are the 'before' and the proposed 'after' pictures.
As mentioned, the population of Smoky Lake is 1022 - I have that directly from the Mayor, with whom we sat at the fundraiser. The church's new sanctuary will seat approximately 400 people, over 1/3 the population of the community. Interesting.
They are converting the building in stages, so it will not instantly look like the second picture, but Eva and I were so encouraged by their vision and their willingness to step out in faith for this project. Here is a link to their own video page on the project
And guess what... they run Alpha like crazy! In fact, two of my most loyal coaches are from there. I don't think I can claim this as the church that Alpha built, but I like to think that Alpha might have played a part.
