CFM Program Archives

The Christian Family Movement is unique in providing discussion guides on current topics that people deal with every day and are friendly to men and women, single and married, divorced and widowed, churched and unchurched. We are constantly creating new materials and have topics that are of concern to families today. In addition to our recent, hot off the press discussion material, we offer a library of topics of relevance from our archives. Because of our large library of topics we are not able to update all of our archived topics.

These archived materials can be used as a springboard for discussion. Many human experiences are as relevant today as they were when they were written. As always, CFM recommends that members bring in their personal experience and current happenings through the Observes and discuss what their response might be in the Acts. Please be aware that the format of these archived materials will not be as user friendly. We hope that our catalog of materials will enrich your small group experience.
