DivorceCare

What is DivorceCare?

DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.

DivorceCare is made up of a network of 15,000 + churches worldwide equipped to offer divorce support groups. The program is non denominational and features practical information and biblical teaching for recovering from divorce or separation.


How does it work?

DivorceCare is a support group that meets weekly. You'll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an "oasis" in an otherwise difficult season in your life. There are three key parts to your DivorceCare experience.


Video Seminar

During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.


A Support Group with Focus

After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.


Workbook

Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.
