Wondering how to stay connected with your neighbours during COVID?

Caring for our neighbours during these difficult times and with heightened restrictions is still possible. God can still use us to be a light in these dark times to those around us. Here some great ideas to engage socially while still staying safe.

Community Response

If you looking for community support, click here.

We have new opportunities to share the love and hope of Jesus through acts of kindness to our neighbours and in our community. FAC desires to see lives, communities and the world transformed through the gospel in action.

Here are some practical ways for you to get involved:

Lunch Program

  • FAC has partnered with the Youth Centres of Calgary throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to offer bagged lunches, after-school snacks, and staple items to kids and families in Calgary who face food insecurity. Throughout the summer on weekdays there are 6 communities in Southeast Calgary where we will have food sites. We still need drivers and site volunteers who are willing to bring food into Applewood, Ogden, and Penbrooke. As we build relationships, we are able to walk alongside people in their journey. If you would like to support this opportunity, you can donate through the Care Fund here.

There are other hands-on opportunities such as delivering furniture to new immigrants and helping with clothing, backpack, and other drives.

Temporary Mustard Seed Shelter at FAC

  • If you would like to volunteer at the Mustard Seed shelter, please email them directly.
  • The Mustard Seed is urgently looking for donations of medical, hygiene, and clothing items. Find complete details about items needed here. Items can be dropped off at one of these locations:
