The LIC Couples’ Fellowship began in September 2003. The Fellowship’s Vision, Mission and Objectives are defined as follows:
To have a vibrant and close knit, young Christian Couples Fellowship, full of exemplary marital relationships in LIC.
To bring together young Christian couples in LIC to learn from the scriptures, to share their experiences add to care for each other in order to strengthen their fellowship and marital relationships in the Lord.
- To bring together young Christian couples in LIC to provide additional Christian family and marital support in their life-long journey.
- To encourage young Christian couples in LIC to learn biblical principles as well as life and relationship skills together.
- To encourage young Christian couples in LIC to share everything including food, wealth, testimonies, prayer, challenges, needs etc with each other.
- To encourage young Christian couples in LIC to care for each other through praying for each other, spending time and resources on each other, counseling, showing concern as well as any other thing the Lord so encourages them to do for one another.
An important feature has been the annual retreats held usually at Hephzibah Christian Centre where members take a break to recommit to this life long journey together. In addition a novelty, the Marriage Course was introduced into the activities of the fellowship and was well patronised by members.
From September 2003 to date, several topics have been covered at the fellowship meetings. Membership of the fellowship has also increased from three (3) couples, through an average of ten (10) couples to an average of about twenty (20) couples per meeting. It is noteworthy that by 2006 the original name “LIC Young Couples’ Fellowship” was modified to “LIC Couples’ Fellowship” with the recognition that whether young or old there were several issues confronting married couples that needed a platform to be heard and addressed.
We look forward to more couples joining us, sharing fellowship and being strengthened through the activities we plan together.
