I have loved the FIEC since well before I was a part of it. I love it for its commitment to the Truth: what other church grouping do you know that has actually strengthened its basis of faith in recent years? In a desert of doctrinal unfaithfulness, what an oasis that decision was! I love it because of its commitment to Christian love: it tries (and to a large degree succeeds) to make the gospel itself the basis of fellowship rather than other doctrines. And I love it for its annual conferences. This year's took place from April 26 to 30.
