“For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
do not fear. I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
Welcome to the DivorceCare Ministry, supported by Calvary Chapel Chester Springs. DivorceCare is a program designed to provide healing from the pain of separation, divorce, or the end of a significant long-term relationship. This program will give you tools to help deal with your emotions and stresses, and you’ll be encouraged along the way by people who have been where you are and understand what you are going through.
DivorceCare is a 13-week program. Each week of this course includes a 30-minute video (weekly topics include issues such as anger, grief, depression, loneliness, finances, etc.). The videos feature counselors and teachers who provide insights on ways to handle the many challenges you are facing. They also feature people who have gone through divorce and share strategies that have helped them in their journey. The video is followed by a group discussion about the principles taught in the videos, and their application and relevance to the specific circumstances of each member in the group.
In addition, workbooks are a valuable part of the growth and healing process of the DivorceCare program, and every member will receive one. The workbooks provide a video outline for taking notes during the videos. They also provide short daily exercises to help you work through your emotions and find answers to your questions during the week. The cost of the workbook is $20 and the cost of the Surviving the Holidays workbook is $5.00 (scholarships to cover the cost of the workbooks are available by request).
