life groupS

Our Life Groups are meeting again! Please see information below about each group and the leaders. If you'd like to join a group, please click here to sign up. You can also call the church office to sign up, as well.

Because we believe that people grow when they are connected to God's Word and God's people, our goal is to have every adult in our church family involved in a Life Group. Our groups typically meet weekly with their study being connected to Sunday morning's sermon. The goal of Life Groups is to establish life-changing relationships and grow toward maturity in Christ together.

If you have more questions, please call the church office at 641.648.3305 or contact a leader.

  • Bob and Carol Rieken

  • Jeff and Mary Vieth

    While their acts of serving the church may not always be noticed, Jeff and Mary Vieth contribute to the church body in many ways. From hot coffee and fresh donuts every Sunday morning (pre-COVID), to prep work for church meals, Jeff and Mary help keep regular activities at IFEFC running each week. During the week, Jeff can be found helping answer insurance questions and Mary is enjoying more free time as she recently retired.

  • Ron and Linda Allen

    If you have a question about life in Iowa Falls or the history of IFEFC, ask Ron and Linda Allen. Ron and Linda have spent much of their lives in town and were some of the first members of our church body. Although retired, part-time jobs, caring for family members, and a bountiful garden keep them busy.

    For the winter of 2021, the Allen's Life Group is meeting at the church building on Thursdays at 6:30pm. No childcare available. Social distancing guidelines will be followed and you are welcome to wear a mask if you'd like. Contact Ron at or 641.373.3382 for more information.
