Separation and Divorce can be the most painful and stressful experiences that one can face. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. DivorceCare is a biblical, Christ-centered divorce support group ministry that meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has three distinct elements: 1) 40-minute Video Seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects, 2) Group Discussion, discussing the week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members, and 3) a Workbook to take video notes and complete short, daily homework exercises to encourage healing. Cost of the Workbook is $25.

No matter when you lost a loved one, the holiday season will naturally bring up some tough emotions. And due to the nature of Thanksgiving and Christmas–with their focus on family, social events, yearly traditions, expectations, and “cheer”–the emotions can blindside you. Surviving the Holidays is a one-night, two-hour session to help lessen the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and being prepared. Attendees will watch a 40-minute video, be part of a group discussion, and receive a Survival Guide (at no charge), with daily encouragement and helpful exercises for the days ahead. Register using the form below.
