What is DivorceCare?
DivorceCare helps you recover from the pain of separation and divorce.
The Support you need. Information you can trust.
Unless you’ve been there, it’s hard to understand the hurt that comes from separation and divorce. That’s why many of your friends and family don’t fully understand what you are going through and don’t know how best to help you.
We do. Our DivorceCare group is led by people who have been through divorce and successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We’ll show you how to deal with the hurt caused by separation or divorce.
DivorceCare is a network of 15,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer divorce support groups. The program is nondenominational and features practical information and biblical teaching for recovering from divorce or separation. Learn more about DivorceCare at www.divorcecare.org.
What to expect
DivorceCare is a support group that meets weekly. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an “oasis” in an otherwise difficult season of your life. There are three key parts to your DivorceCare experience.
- Video Seminars – Encouraging and information packed videos featuring leading divorce recovery experts
- Support Group – Small group discussion about the weekly video content and the issues faced by individual group members
- Workbook – Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly topics
When to Begin?
You are welcome to begin attending our DivorceCare group at any point. Each session is “self-contained”, so you do not need to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in our next 13-week cycle.
