Throughout the Bible God invites us as his people, to show radical hospitality by welcoming the stranger with generosity. The Saint Benedictine Rule says “let all guests who arrive be received like Christ”. Christian hospitality has been traditionally more than having someone over for dinner and the practice helps us turn ourselves outward. It’s so easy to be busy and preoccupied with our own lives and worries; to only know the people we know and, to focus on all we have to do. It takes intentionality to make room in our lives and in our hearts to show the extravagant love of Christ for those that need to experience and hear the good news of Jesus.

Calgary Dream Centre
In 2000, First Assembly Church had a vision for a faith-based recovery organization working to change the lives of those most vulnerable in our city. The vision included taking a holistic process of transformation that would help individuals to escape the cycle of homelessness and addiction. Partnering with Jim Moore and the entire Calgary Dream Centre staff, it was dedicated in 2003 and has been serving Calgary ever since in a way that has not yet been seen. FA Church will continue to partner with this organization to see individuals be transformed and set free. To learn more or donate click the link below.
