DivorceCare programs for adults and kids start Sept. 10 at Church of the Saviour
Separation and divorce are among the most painful and stressful experiences that many people will ever face. DivorceCare is a structured 13-week program designed to help people navigate this new territory and begin to rebuild their lives.
DivorceCare participants receive counsel and encouragement through video teaching, small group discussion and weekly scripture study. Each meeting includes a video presentation by an expert covering subjects such as finances and forgiveness. Participants also receive a workbook with a weekly Bible study. The video, workbook and personal experiences are discussed in a confidential and supportive group with others who understand the tough issues of separation and divorce.
DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) is a special group for children ages 5–12. Through videos, stories, activities, games, journaling, prayer, and the guidance of DC4K leaders, children learn to cope with divorce in their family, to realize that divorce is not their fault, and to lean on God.
Church of the Saviour will offer this series on Monday evenings, 6:30–8:30 p.m., beginning Sept. 10. There is a one-time fee of $15 for the workbook. DC4K will meet at the same time as the adult group. Childcare will be available for preschoolers. All members of the community who are dealing with these issues are invited to attend. For more information, call the church office at 216-321-8880 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
