Find Help, Hope and Healing for the Pain of Separation and Divorce
DivorceCare is a ministry of support, encouragement, and help for those who are separated, going through a divorce, or have been divorced but have not healed. DivorceCare meetings are a safe place to heal and renew hope through one of the most difficult times of your life. It is not just a Grace Church ministry but a trusted program used in a network of over 13,000 churches worldwide.
For more information or questions regarding DivorceCare, please contact CareMinistries@gracechurchsc.org.
DivorceCare is a support group that meets weekly. There are three key parts to the DivorceCare weekly experience: Video Seminars, Group Discussions, and a Personal Workbook. Each video seminar features dynamic teaching from top divorce recovery experts. After the video/teaching time, your small group will discuss the video content and issues faced by group members. Each small group is led by people who have been divorced and can relate to much of the pain, emotions, and challenges you are experiencing. Your personal workbook will help reinforce each topic throughout the rest of the week. For more information about DivorceCare check out their website here.
Good news. You can join a DivorceCare group at anytime. We want you to find the help and healing that you need, so come join us at any time in the process. You will just want to later take the classes you have missed when a new class begins. You can just show up but it is better if you let us know you are coming by registering.
Each time that DivorceCare meets, we want our participants to experience a warm and inviting environment that eliminates participants anxiety about the evening. To do this we want to offer childcare and a welcoming environment and need plenty of volunteers. The class meets from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Tuesday Nights. You can commit to help for all nights or just choose a few nights on which you want to help.REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER
Natalie & Rebecca on serving with DivorceCare for Kids
Your kids probably feel scared, sad, and confused after your divorce. They know you have been hurt deeply. As a result, they may hide their feelings because they are worried about your happiness or because they do not know how to express their feelings appropriately. DC4K helps them process those feelings and gives them tools to communicate better with you.
For 13 weeks your children become involved in a fun, caring group. The weekly session topics help your children learn that God’s love strengthens them and helps them turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.
Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities. Games, crafts, role playing, discussion times, journaling, and activity books help your children process the divorce and move forward in their lives.
DC4K is designed for kids 5–12 years of age.
Quintin, Priscilla, & Tasha on serving with DivorceCare for Teens
As families divorce, each family member is impacted and goes through a number of different emotions and struggles. In addition to DivorceCare and DivorceCare for Kids, we also offer an option for 5th-12th grade students, called DivorceCare for Teens. This care group will help your student work through the questions, emotions, and thoughts that surround divorce.
For 13 weeks your student becomes involved in an age-appropriate, caring group that will work through either “Dealing with Divorce” or “The Big D, Divorce Thru the Eyes of a Teen”. They will have caring leaders who desire to create a safe and encouraging environment for all. During the group times, topics will include forgiveness, communication, and how to grow closer to Christ through trials such as divorce. DivorceCare for Teens meets on Tuesday nights, 6:30pm-8:00pm, beginning January 31 on both the Pelham and Powdersville campuses.
