We’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new Family Life Resource Centre this weekend in partnership with Focus on the Family Canada. This vibrant hub at FAC Deerfoot is designed to be a beacon of support, inspiration, and guidance for families in our community.

“As we step into a new season of ‘Joining Jesus’ as a church, we felt Jesus calling us to better meet the needs of individuals and families, so dedicated space that was easy to access was needed. This led to repurposing our Library to accommodate meeting new needs through this Family Life Resource Centre and a new Community Support Center next door,” explains Senior Associate Pastor of Operations Jeff Marshall.

“We hope that people who use these spaces will not only know there’s love and practical support for them through FAC but more importantly, that they’re loved and supported by Jesus,” adds Pastor Jeff.

“I’m excited about the introduction of the Family Life Resource Centre,” comments Ron Buschman, Director of the Couple’s Ministry at FAC. “This specialized space perfectly aligns with our mission to foster thriving marriages, and I foresee it becoming a catalyst for nurturing deeper connections and leaving a lasting impact within our church community.”

“At Focus on the Family Canada, it’s our vision to see every family in our beautiful country transformed by love, vibrant in faith and enduring in hope. And we are not alone in this endeavour. We have always cared deeply about the cause of the local church because they truly are on the frontlines of supporting individuals and families in their communities and spreading the Gospel to those who need it most. That’s why one of our goals in the coming years is to connect with new churches and strengthen existing partnerships,” writes Jean-Paul Beran, President of Focus on the Family Canada.

“FAC has been a valued partner of Focus on the Family Canada for many years, and we’re so excited for you to be the first church in the country to have a Family Life Resource Centre in partnership with us. Thanks to the generosity of one of our donors, this resource centre has been built to provide a safe space for gathering, learning and growing in faith. Stocked with many of our free resources, we hope and pray marriages and families in Calgary and the surrounding area will be deeply impacted by this unique venture. Thank you, FAC, for all the work you do in helping families thrive!”  adds Beran.
