Contact CFM National Office for resources and assistance. We are here to help!

Pastors and pastoral leaders: See this page for details about offering multiple CFM groups.

Lay leaders, talk with your pastor about starting this small group ministry for marriage and family enrichment. Here is a letter to share with your pastor. 

Invite a few couples or parents you know -- or whom you keep running into on Sundays -- to join you.

Here is a brief description of CFM to share with them. You might also share the FAQ page from our website.

Program Book - Your group will use one of CFM's Social Inquiry programs to guide your meetings.
- Most new groups choose, For Happier Families or Meeting Jesus Changes Everything, but you may begin with any book in the CFM library. Program book descriptions. 

Join CFM and order your Program book. Dues for new members are $10/family. 
A Starter Kit includes 4 copies of the same book for $40. 
Renewing members give $40/family annually.

This short booklet includes all the details for starting CFM: a sample invitation letter, bulletin announcements, how to run meetings and manage your group, and more.

Testimonies from families and clergy describing CFM here and here.

Promote. Run a bulletin announcement to invite more couples. Flyers, posters and more: Download and print at Promotional Materials.

Start meeting regularly. We recommend meeting weekly or twice a month for the first four sessions to help new groups to bond. Our program books make it easy for anyone to facilitate a meeting, including prayer, scripture reflection, faith sharing, discussion questions, and action ideas on topics relevant to Christian families.
