Find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce

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.

This DivorceCare seminar and support group is led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable DivorceCare resources to help you deal with the pain of the past and look forward to rebuilding your life.

You don’t have to go through it alone

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. We meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

A seminar with experts

During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, we watch a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.

A support group with focus

After viewing the video, we spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

Please join us

Don’t try to go through separation or divorce alone. Link up with our DivorceCare divorce recovery support group. It’s a place where you’ll find caring people who understand the issues you face.

The seminars take place on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm in the Spring Hills Worship Center from September 10 until December 10, 2014. Unlike other support groups, DivorceCare has only a one-time $20 fee for the book. You can start at any time during the 13 weeks and fit right in. Childcare is available at no charge.
