We have been leading DivorceCare now for 12 years and love to watch what God does in each session. In each session, God puts together the participants He wants there, He does the ministering and He does the healing. It is amazing to watch the transformation from one of very deep hurt and anger to a love for God and learning to trust Him in everything. They go from a total down cast face to an illuminating countenance.
DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.
Your DivorceCare experience begins each week as your group watches a video seminar on DVD. The DivorceCare videos cover topics essential to your recovery from the hurt of separation or divorce. The videos are produced in a compelling television magazine format and feature on-location video and real-life stories of people who have experienced divorce. Here is a list of the weekly topics:
This introductory seminar helps answer the question, “Why do I feel the way I do?” You’ll come out of this session with an overview of the DivorceCare program and an appreciation for the benefits of a support group environment.
This video segment helps you begin to identify the many losses that occurred as the result of your divorce. It also introduces strategies you can use to begin the process of healing from your separation or divorce.
This video seminar deals with the subject of anger, a nearly universal response to the pain and stress of divorce. You’ll gain constructive suggestions for dealing with your anger and learn methods for responding to the anger coming from your ex-spouse.
Depression can be a paralyzing emotion as you go through divorce. Even so, it can also be a “healing emotion,” and this video seminar explores constructive responses you can employ to deal with depression.
After divorce, many people respond to their loneliness in ways that will cause them even deeper pain. This segment explores healthy ways to overcome the loneliness that will inevitably arise during your separation or divorce.
This video seminar explores real-world answers from the Bible on issues related to separation, divorce and remarriage, presented in an easily understandable format.
The loneliness that comes with divorce will put you at risk when making decisions about new relationships. This session helps you determine whether you are ready for a new relationship and how to get it off on the right foot if you are.
Most people are stretched financially during divorce. This video segment offers you practical help on how to survive and ways to deal with the many money issues that you’ll face during and after divorce.
This video seminar helps you understand the effects of divorce on your children and offers practical suggestions for being an effective single parent. You’ll also learn how your children are processing the divorce and how you can help in their healing.
How do you deal with your sexuality after divorce? This important session will help you understand sexuality from God’s perspective and see that it is possible to be single again and satisfied.
The hurt that comes with divorce is a barrier that prevents many people from forgiving their former spouse. This seminar shows you why forgiveness is important and how you can begin the process of forgiving.
Reconciliation is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the divorce healing process. You’ll learn that reconciliation can happen even if your marriage is not restored and why it’s important to pursue reconciliation.
How can God produce something good out of something as bad as divorce? This segment will show you how to grow closer to God as you go through your divorce experience.
We have seen people over the years that would pray to get lost on the way to church on the first night of DivorceCare, pray to have car failure on the second week and the by the third week they can’t wait to get to the church to be in their support group. It is our goal to have each group member feel accepted and can openly share thoughts and ideas. You will find that your small group will become a “home base”, a place of love and honest sharing.
One may join the group at any point during the 13 week semester. One may pre-register or obtain additional information by calling the church office during normal business hours or e-mail Ed Hooks @
