Our next DivorceCare group to will begin in the fall of 2017. DivorceCare meets for 13 weeks here at the church in our downstairs Conference Room. This group is for those going through/struggling with divorce. The videos and discussions are Bible based and inspiring for all those going through this difficult process. Anyone can join in at any given week, as each session is a self-contained learning experience and does not require having been there from session one to experience the help it provides those going through the difficulties of divorce. Those that join in part way through the session are welcome to return during the next 13-week group for the session that they have missed. We even have a few people that have come for more one 13-week group just for the support they experience here and to review what they have learned earlier. To be added to the next group, click here.
