Christian Family Movement (CFM)

Christian Family Movement (CFM) is a group of families young and old that get together on a monthly basis to discuss how families can live the Christian faith in everyday life, and how families can improve society through actions of love, service, education, and example.

 

What is Christian Family Movement?

The Mission of the Christian Family Movement (CFM) is to promote Christ-centered marriage and family life; to help individuals and their families to live the Christian faith in everyday life; and to improve society through actions of love, service, education, and example. CFM is a heterogeneous group made up of all different types of families from many different walks of life with a common bond:

• Creating a Christ-centered marriage and family life
• Helping to live our faith in our daily life
• Helping to improve society through actions of love, service and education by our example.

CFM adult members get together in small groups (about five to seven couples each) to discuss topics that are related to better living faith, becoming better parents and becoming better spouses.

CFM monthly meetings are supplemented with occasions of recreation, fun and prayer that include the whole family.
