NEW! DivorceCare for Kids – DC4K

DivorceCare for kids is a special group for children ages 5-12 to help them heal from the hurt caused by the separations or divorce of their parents. At our weekly DC4K group, kids make friends with other kids who understand how they feel and the things they are going through because of the divorce of their parents.

Best of all, children will learn how God’s love can strengthen them and help turn tears to hope and joy!

Registration Coming Soon!

Informational Meeting on September 11th from 6:30 – 7:30 pm in Room E112.

Sessions will be weekly from September 11th – December 11th, 6:30 – 8:30 pm.
