What is DivorceCare? DivorceCare is a biblical, Christ-centered support group ministry. It’s a lay-led group of friendly, caring people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You will learn how to heal from the deep hurt of divorce and discover hope for your future. DivorceCare is a safe environment to talk with others who have experienced or are experiencing a similar situation.

When is it? We are planning to begin our first DivorceCare support group on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 7:00-9:00 pm. Sessions will be held at the church in the upstairs Multipurpose Room every Wednesday evening for 13 weeks, and child care is available. We will take one Wednesday off, March 28, during spring break, since many people have visitation or take trips during this break.

Who can attend? Anyone going through separation or divorce, or who has gone through separation or divorce, who wants an empathetic support group to process their healing. This is open to the community, and not just to church attendees.

What does it cost? A $15 donation is asked to cover the cost of your workbook. If you can’t afford that, don’t let it keep you from coming.

How do the sessions work? First, we will pray together, introduce ourselves, and go over the guidelines. Each week we will watch a 45-minute video prepared specifically for these sessions, covering issues like emotional healing, anger, forgiveness, depression, loneliness, parenting, finances, and new relationships. Then we’ll break into smaller groups for discussion. There are some workbook exercises to do during the week as well.

All group sessions are meant to be supportive and positive. Healing and rebuilding are the goals. Note that this is a support group and not group therapy. If your circumstances require professional counseling or legal help, we will refer you to a reputable licensed counselor or lawyer in the community.

Can I join later on? You can join sessions at any time, but please fill out the form below so we can order workbooks and prepare for child care. Another 13-week program will be planned for the fall of 2018.
