It’s difficult to live life to the fullest if your relationships are unhealthy or nonexistent. Manifest’s Relationship Track is designed to help you do two things:
- Revitalize the relationships you already have, and…
- Connect you with people on the same journey for mutual encouragement, learning, and support.
This page will give you practical things to do, read, watch, and try as you work on or develop your relationships. Take these concrete steps of faith as a way of life and this track will get you started.
We also want to remind you: Having family and friends is not the same as enjoying a an empowering faith community that learns, prays, eats, celebrates, and does life together. Faith in Christ means you were born into his Family. t’s time to explore what that means.
Are you struggling to make the time for community? Have you been hurt by people and find it hard to trust? Maybe you think you’re doing just fine without it. This video will help:
Join a Life Group
Life Groups are small groups of Manifesters that meet during the week for mutual encouragement as they learn to live life to the fullest by following Jesus. We encourage everyone to join a Life Group if at all possible. Kids are always welcome!
We have several groups you can check out, each meeting on different evenings in different communities:
Stephen and Carlin Anquist’s group meets 6-8pm Monday nights in Evanston to make it easier on families with younger children.
Tom and Shauna Ginn’s group meets 7-8:30pm Wednesday nights in Hidden Valley. Contact them for more info!
Eric and Chelsey Schubert’s group meets 7-9:00pm Thursday nights in Airdrie. Contact them for more info!
Brad & Shauna Huebert’s group meets 7:15-9:00pm Tuesday nights in Coventry Hills. This is also a series group: You can sign up one series at a time if you can’t make long term commitment work.
Email us at info@manifestcalgary for more info on the group you’re interested in checking out.
