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 13-week 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 $20. We will not have class on October 13 and 27, and November 24.

For more information, please contact Janet Hawkins at 865-748-7828. Please register below.


There will be no GriefShare through the month of January. Check back for more updates soon.

The workbook for GriefShare is $20. We will not have class on Monday, October 18.
