This Weekend

When we plan a dinner party, we often default to inviting our inner circle of friends. How often do we choose to look past the habits and hang-ups of others and include others at the table? What if we intentionally welcomed the marginalized, like Jesus?

Need to Know

Preparing for Baptism

Our next baptism weekend is March 9/10. Sign up  for an online info session on March 5  to walk through what the Bible says about baptism and help you prepare to take this step! Have a child or youth who’s ready to be baptized? The DiscoveryLand or Student Ministries teams would love to connect with you.

Woven Live Theatre Production

FAC is excited to present Woven by Adam Schnell on March 21-24 at the FAC Deerfoot Campus, a live theatre experience chronicling the joys and heartaches of 7 women who are thrust together as Jesus of Nazareth transforms their families’ lives.

Check performance times and details!

Cassandra’s Story

Cassandra smiling

“I was looking for mentorship, leadership, and community … I found a group of people at Alpha that has been a wonderful support.”

Cassandra grew up in a family that loved Jesus and became a believer when she was 7 years old. Her Grandfather was an amazing man of God, and she still remembers sitting on the stairs with him one day as he walked her through a prayer where she gave her life to Christ. After moving to Calgary a few years ago, she began looking for a church community and started attending FAC because it was close to home. Since then, she’s taken part in Alpha, Women’s Bible Study, and Inner Healing Ministry.

Jesus, to me, is my constant companion … He feels like that friend that even if you happen to not talk for a while, you can pick up a conversation at any point. He’s my support, my Redeemer. He’s just beautiful!”

Thank you, Cassandra, for sharing your story! If you’ve experienced Jesus in a new way recently, we’d love to hear about it! Please get in touch with Angel Castillo to share your story.
