How to Change Your Notification Settings

When you create a new Faithlife account and join a group, by default you’ll receive an email when someone posts to the group, sends you a message, starts a new discussion, and more. You can see a complete list of notifications when you edit your profile and go to the notifications tab.

(“Posting & Messages” is one category of notifications. Be sure to check each category.)

Next to each type of notification you’ll see “Edit per group settings.” This lets you choose which groups you’ll receive emails about, and which groups you’ll only see in the app and online.

Click the drop down arrows on the left to see all types of notifications, or use the check boxes on the right to change settings for everything at once.


Say, for example, you’re in a group led by your pastor, and he posts devotional thoughts once a week. You might want to receive email notifications when your pastor shares something new. Your small group, however, posts multiple times per day, so email notifications might not be as urgent.

There’s also another option:


If you still want to know everything that’s going on, you can adjust the frequency that you receive email notifications. These settings apply after you indicate what you would like to receive email notifications for. If you change all your notification settings to “notification,” then this option won’t matter. If, however, you have a particularly active small group or ministry team and you want to receive email updates about what’s going on without filling your inbox, you can set this to daily or weekly digest to stay in the loop.

Create your Faithlife account today, or tell your friends and family about email notifications, so they can follow along with your Faithlife Groups.

    2 Corinthians 12:9
    And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
    After great revelations, Apostle Paul received a physical pain. There are students of NT who do not believe Paul is the subject of this verse, and there are others who know exactly what the cause of Paul’s pain was. In my studies I arrived at the conclusion that Paul is the subject and we will never know exactly what Paul’s weakness was. He did not reveal, and I assumed the Holy Spirit did not want us to know it. Paul prayed three times to have this thorn taken from him, but the answer was, “My grace is sufficient for you.” We learned that God has three answers to every prayer, yes, not, or wait. Rev. Charles Stanly said in a sermon, that the fourth answer is: “My grace is sufficient for you.” Why do you think Paul stopped praying for this problem? Was he afraid to continue to pray? No, he was not afraid, but he understood the grace of God. Many Christians are struggling with the grace doctrine. They do not have problems with the law, but their trouble is with God’s grace. Why? It makes them humble! It humiliates every one of us. We cannot solve this issue, but God’s grace is sufficient! We are not sufficient? No, we are not, God is! And this is why I admire Paul, because he trusted God and was content with God’s sufficient grace. I do not know what troubles you, but I know that God’s grace is sufficient for all that you are suffering from. In fact, God promised Paul that His power is perfected in weaknesses. Oh, how great demonstration of this power was on the cross. In the weakness of the humanity, God’s power prevailed, and Jesus won the victory for us! In your live my friend, there will be thorns, and many weaknesses, but I can assure you, God’s grace is sufficient for your entire situation. Let us trust in God’s sufficient grace for all the days of our lives. His grace has no boundaries; it extends from eternity to eternity. Do not be anxious, pray and obey, trust and walk confidently that God’s grace is sufficient for everything that you will face today!
