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 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.

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?
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!
