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 13-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 session includes a 14th week for “Surviving the Holidays”.
The Fall 2020 class will run 8/25/20 – 12/1/20 (14 session curriculum with no meeting on 11/24 for Thanksgiving Break). We encourage you to attend all 14 classes.
If you are in need of repeating this class, please email the leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The class meets on Tuesdays from 6:30 – 8:30 in room 309 of our East Wing. We charge a registration fee of $20 (meals and materials are included). If you have any specific COVID-19 concerns, please email: email@example.com. Scholarships are available by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please register to attend by completing this FORM.
Registering with us allows us to expect you for food and childcare needs. We will supply you a book. You will also receive a request to register with divorcecare.org for additional online resources. Please do not purchase a book through them as well. Thank you.

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.
