CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2017

Heavenly Father, you are the Creator and we are all your children. Make us truly one. Protect us from the division in families, in communities, in the Church and in the world.

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Savior who died for us and saved us. Now as your disciples, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in you throughout the world. May we be worthy witnesses. Show us the way to self-denial, embrace of the cross, and following you. Raise among us true servant leaders who have a passion for souls.

Holy Spirit, you are the agent of evangelization who sends us to engage in spiritual warfare. Equip us with the armor of God and weapons of righteousness. Help us to preserve unity in the Spirit through the bond of peace. May we stand together as your holy warriors.

Triune God, you are three Persons in one God. In you we have one baptism, one faith, one hope. We are one body. Help us to truly become united in mind and heart, in vision and mission, to be one with the Father through the Son and in the Spirit.

Mama Mary, you are our beloved Mother. We are your offspring who strive to keep God's commands, bear witness to Jesus, and wage war in the Spirit against the enemy. Cover us with your mantle of protection, keeping us in your loving embrace always.

Amen.

Serving the Poorest of the Poor

OUR THEME FOR 2017 (Part 6)

WORKS OF THE FLESH  

We as the people of God live by the Spirit and not by the flesh. “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires.” (v.24). We are to avoid the works of the flesh. “Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like.” (v.19-21a).



UN BUREAUCRAT TO IMPOSE LGBT  

December 12, 2016 (C-Fam) – With his job still on the line, the newly appointed UN independent expert for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights laid out a provocative agenda for his 3-year term a couple weeks ago. “This mandate will cover every country under the sun and under the moon,” Thai Professor Vitit Muntarbhorn is reported to have said, further antagonizing countries that have already promised not to cooperate with him.





CFC-Kids for Family and Life

 

What is the reality concerning kids today?

Kids today (2009) are affected by the "emo" culture or a culture of insecurity and feeling of unworthiness. They are also more mature than their age. They are individualistic - not eager to interact with other kids. Kids are stressed! Affected by media, peers, etc. They are not afraid of authority - they do and try anything that they want. Kids today have no good role models. And there are no more kid friendly shows on TV. And above all that, they have less time with parents and almost no family time.

What is CFC Kids for Family and Life (CFC-KFL)?

CFC-KFL is a young ministry of Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL). Members are aged 0 - 12 years old.

What is the Vision of CFC-KFL?

CFC KFL will bring out the BEST in Kids!

CFC KFL will be a venue to form Strong Christian Families by having parents who are involved with their kids and having kids who are part of the life of the Church!

CFC KFL will bring kids into a deeper relationship with Christ because NO ONE is too young to know Christ!

What does CFC-KFL believe?

  • Children have a special place in God's heart (Mt 18: 1 - 6; 10).
  • Children can grow in their love for and trust in God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Eph 6: 4).
  • The pre-teen stage of a child's life is crucial as it is part of his formative years.
  • Children need a positive concept of themselves.
  • Children's God-given talents need to be recognized and nurtured in a healthy Christian environment that is fun-loving and life giving.
  • Children may play a significant role in the life and mission of the church (1 Tim 4: 12).
  • Christian Family renewal can best be achieved if all the members of the family have accepted Jesus as the center of their home - including the children (Jos 24: 15).

 

What does CFC-KFL aim to do?

  • Help the children enjoy a relationship with Jesus Christ in an environment that is fun and life-giving through scripture, worship, education, service and in fellowship with their friends.
  • Create an atmosphere where Christian values can be shared, practiced, supported, developed, experienced and more importantly reinforced in the home.
  • Conduct spiritual training for the children that will be reinforced in the home, thus conduct training for the parents as well so that CFC-KFL and the parents can work hand in hand in their spiritual nourishment.

What are the 3 support environments for CFC-KFL?

  • TODDLERS / Infants / Babies (0 to 4 years old)
  • JUNIOR KIDS / Tots / Children (5 to 8 years old)
  • SENIOR KIDS Tweens / Pre-Adolescent (9 to 12 years old)

What is the CFC-KFL Purpose?

  • Worship - "Love God with all your heart"
  • Ministry - "Love your neighbor as yourself"
  • Evangelism - "Go and make disciples"
  • Fellowship - "Baptizing them"
  • Discipleship - "Teaching them to obey"

They will be easier to remember using the acronym HEART:

Honor (Worship)

Education/Empower (Discipleship)

Act (Ministry)

Relate (Fellowship)

Testify (Evangelism)

Thus ...

The CFC-KFL Purpose Statement

CFC KFL exists to provide an environment for Kids to HONOR Jesus and Mama Mary by living like them, to EMPOWER them to ACT in humble service, to encourage them to RELATE in joy with their family, friends and the Church and to TESTIFY to God's love.

Who are involved with CFC-KFL?

The Parents
Parents are at the forefront of our work with the kids. Whatever is taught at home is reinforced in CFC KFL. And without the commitment and support of the parents, CFC KFL will not be able to penetrate the kids completely especially in their faith and personal relationship with Christ!

The CFC-KFL Workers
Coordinators, Fulltime workers, Kids Ministry Servants / Ate / Kuyas, Mission Volunteer

What is the entry point to CFC-KFL?
