“The people of Encore have had a huge part in helping me make Texas my home. I have developed a circle of friends here that have eased the transition from 50 years in California to Longview, as well as to my new church home. My family doesn’t have to feel responsible for my ‘socialization’ in these golden years, so we’re all benefiting from my being part of Encore.”

“What rich fellowship there is in Encore! Developing life-long friendships with people of God who know how to use a stick shift, or used a phone booth, or can remember Barney Fife, Jed Clampett, and Walter Cronkite. Encore was one of the reasons we believed FBC was God’s choice for us.”
