Message from class facilitators
“We have each gone through the struggles of divorce and single parenting and are now a blended family. We hope to be an encouragement that healing can occur when done with God. You are an individual that is on our hearts. We are available to meet with you one on one and pray with you and mentor you through this journey. However, we would like to encourage you to attend a DivorceCare group.”
What is DivorceCare?
DivorceCare is a 14-week support group covering topics such as: anger, loneliness, forgiveness, kid care, depression, finances and more. Healing from divorce is not easy and often painful and long. DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences.
The Fall class will start 8/28/18 (13 weeks curriculum + an extra class for Surviving the Holidays. No class on 11/20 due to Thanksgiving). You do not have to attend all 14 weeks; however, you will get the most out of the class if you do. If you have attended previously, you may come anytime, just bring your book.
The class meets on Tuesday’s from 6:30 – 8:30 in room 309 of our East Wing. Meals are provided and we ask for a $20 one-time payment for your materials and food. Scholarships are available by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
We now offer childcare for birth – 5th grade with registration.

Some children struggle deeply with the separation and divorce, while others seem to bounce back quickly. In the long run, all children are affected. DC4K will help minimize and eliminate the short and long term negative effects of divorce on your children’s schoolwork, emotional health and spiritual life. As your children begin to heal from the pain and confusion, their relationships with you, God and others will grow healthy and strong.While RPC does not currently offer DC4k, you can find a group for your child and type in your zip code in “FIND A GROUP”. For ages 5-12.
