CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2018

Great and Almighty God, you are our Father in heaven, and you destine us to be as you are, as you call us to holiness and perfection. You set us as priests in our homes, and we offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to you.

Lord Jesus, we are your body on earth, a people of your own. You give us to each other as brethren and co-workers, caring for and loving each other and building up our community. Help us to grow in authentic servanthood as we renew the family and serve your Church.

Holy Spirit, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in Jesus. We are your holy warriors. Continue to equip and strengthen us, empower us to overcome the enemy, and let us bring your righteousness to the ends of the earth.

Triune God, we belong to you. We are nothing apart from you. But in you and with you and through you, we are destined for greatness. Send us forth, not to be high and mighty, but to be low and lowly. May all the glory be yours, now and forever.

Mother Mary, your soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and the Mighty One has done great things for you. As your beloved children, lead us along the right paths, until we attain to the greatness that is our destiny.

Amen.




Canada Won't Fund Student Summer Jobs Unless Employers Support Abortion

by Lianne Laurence
OTTAWA, December 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn't first sign an “attestation” that they agree with abortion and transgender "rights." The new criteria were sent to all MPs and will be made public when the Canada Summer Jobs Program officially opens December 19, 2017. URGENT: Tell Justin Trudeau you oppose this attack on freedom of conscience. Sign the petition! Click here.

Canada Demands Pro-abortion, Pro-LGBT Loyalty Oath for Businesses  

December 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The tolerance of Justin Trudeau and his progressive government has struck again, just in time for Christmas­ and this time, it comes in the form of a demand that any organization seeking to apply for funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program first give an “attestation” that they support an entire laundry list of far-left causes, including abortion, transgenderism, and the redefinition of marriage. This new ideological purity test will automatically exclude millions of Canadian Christians, Jews, Sikhs, and Muslims­essentially, anyone who differs from the government position on any “progressive” cause.





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?

There are 2 Entry Points to CFC KFL, depending upon the age of the kid. For those 9 - 12 years old, there is the Senior Kids Camp.
