As newcomers to FLEFC, our family was looking to find ways to connect with other families outside of Sundays and to dive deeper into Scripture. My experience with the life group has been amazing so far as we have joined together weekly with other couples to study God’s word, encourage one another and pray for the needs of those around us. I find the group “life-giving” and, even during a hectic week, I am motivated to go because I know that I can show up just as I am. There are times when I find myself needing the encouragement of the group and there are other times when I am the one encouraging someone else. In both situations, I come away blessed- with new friends, a deeper faith and energy for another week.
