Kids for Christ

They say that Couples for Christ is a womb to tomb organization meaning that there is a ministry that one can join no matter what age or status in life you are in.  Couples for Christ is composed of five more ministries, i.e, Kids for Christ (KFC), Youth for Christ (YFC), Singles for Christ (SFC), Handmaids of the Lord (HOLD), and Servants of the Lord (SOLD).  All together they form the Family Ministries.  For this article, I will be writing about the youngest ministry, Kids for Christ.

Kids for Christ brings children of Couples for Christ members aged 4-12 years old to enjoy a relationship with Jesus Christ in an environment of fun and life giving.  It supports Couples for Christ mission of bringing families to the plan of God.  In the chapter, KFC is overseen by a KFC Couple Coordinators, CFC members who have volunteered to serve in the ministry.

As a new member of Couples for Christ more than ten years ago, I herded my two older children to every monthly assembly of the KFC.  It was usually done on a Sunday morning and while the kids were doing their activities, other couples who likewise brought along their children spent the time getting to know one another.

Kids for Christ realizes that for its program to be effective, it has to embody the 4Fs namely:  Fun, Friendship, Faith and Freedom.
  • Fun - activities should be enjoyable and should stimulates the child's creativity, sensitivity and perception.
  • Friendship - activities encourage friendship among the children.
  • Faith - activities explain relationship with God in kids language.
  • Freedom - activities allow kids to express themselves freely.
Aside from the monthly assemblies, members of the Kids for Christ look forward to the International Kids Village (IKV).  The IKV is held during the summer months when school is off.  For the 15th IKV, it will be held in May, 2012 at Davao City.
