DivorceCare and DC4K
Divorce… You don’t have to go through it alone.
Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.
Brentwood Baptist Church, through the Congregational Care Ministry, is proud to host DivorceCare and DivorceCare for Kids. These groups are scheduled throughout the year and require registration by emailing email@example.com.
Please contact us for the next available group session.
More about DivorceCare and DivorceCare for Kids
DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each DivorceCare session has two distinct elements…
A Seminar with Experts
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.
Divorce Care for Kids (DC4K)
Children meet other kids who understand how they feel. Children experiencing divorce tell us they feel alone and helpless. Your children may feel scared, sad and confused. They may hide their feelings from you because they are worried about your happiness or because they do not know how to express their feelings appropriately.
What is DC4K?
DC4K is a special group to help your children (grades 2 through 6) heal from the pain caused by a separation or divorce. DC4K provides your children with a safe and loving place to recognize and learn to share their feelings.
For 12 weeks your children become involved in a fun, caring group at Brentwood Baptist Church on Thursday nights. The weekly session topics help your children learn that God’s love strengthens them and helps them turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.
Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities. Games, crafts, role playing, discussion times, journaling and workbooks help your children process the divorce and move forward in their lives. The music CDs, snacks, read aloud stories, exercises and Bible verses teach your children to relax and rest secure in God’s love. The Kids Like Me and Stories from the Bible video dramas present stories of children just like your children, who are experiencing divorce-related problems and have found help and encouragement.
DC4K is a powerful ministry for kids in second grade through sixth grade. Children look forward to each time their “DC4K family” gets together. Your children can be part of a DC4K family.
