Needing a safe place to share and process pain from a broken marriage? The Diaconate seeks to minister to those in any stage of divorce. Women who are separated or newly-divorced will come together for 10 weeks in a safe environment for mutual support and a fresh start by diving into Scripture, prayer and a divorce recovery workbook. While the group will allow for connection to those going through similar circumstances, the main theme of the gatherings will be the heart's response to scripture and prayer. Our hope is that through exposure to the work of the Holy Spirit and reminder of God's character, gospel change can occur in the midst of each individual's journey.
Our 2020 Divorce Care Group for women will be taking place in the fall. Please check back during the summer for dates and registration. It will meet at the home of one of our volunteer leaders.
10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
O Lord, be my helper!”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
