Divorce can be difficult but you don't have to go through it alone. Divorce can make us feel angry, confused, lonely, and heartbroken. That is why the Bible Church is committed to helping those who have experienced or are currently experiencing such circumstances. We offer a setting where people can come together to deal with this new reality.

DivorceCare is a Christian ministry that seeks to provide healing and hope for those going through separation or divorce or who are still healing from a past divorce. This is a 13-week video series with a different topic each week (e.g. Facing My Anger, Facing Loneliness, Forgiveness, Growing Closer to God). Please join us for fellowship, healing and discussion on Wednesday nights starting September 7, 2016 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
