Things you need to know ...

Weekend Services

Exclusively Online

We’ve made the decision that weekend services will be exclusively

online, effective immediately. We hope to resume in-person worship

gathering and DiscoveryLand programming at our physical campuses on

the weekend of January 9/10.

Baptism

Due to adjustments required to adhere to the most current AHS guidelines,

baptisms will no longer be live streamed.

Cornerstone Marketplace

Holiday Hours

FAC’s own on-campus bookstore remains open with a dedicated entrance

near the east entrance of the Deerfoot Campus, and offers curbside pick-up.

Holiday Care and Support

This year, perhaps more than any other, we know the Christmas season

can sometimes be painful rather than joyful. We want you to know there is

connection and support to be found through FAC.

Leaving Home – A Leap of Faith

11

years and 9 months ago,

Evan and I packed all we

could fit into 3 pieces of luggage

each and prepared to board a

one-way flight from Jamaica to

Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We

were leaving home.

We had been anticipating the

move for several months, and

logistically we were all set to go.

Well, mostly all set. Packing our

luggage came down to 2 choices:

what’s important versus what’s

needed. This was a no-brainer if

the items were heavy … Smaller,

lighter items, however, posed a more significant challenge. I’m not a hoarder,

but if you’ve ever given me/us a greeting card, chances are I still have it!

As moving day drew closer, nothing could have prepared me for the myriad

of emotions and thoughts – underscored by all the unknowns ...

On the one hand, we were excited! We knew this was where God was leading

us at this juncture in our lives. We were expecting our first child and about to

embark on an adventure in a new country …
