DivorceCare at First United Methodist Church
People who are hurting, in any form, from the sting of divorce or separation are urged to find refuge in DivorceCare, an educational support and discussion group offered at First United Methodist Church, 200 Market St., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday evenings. The church has been offering this ministry since 2003. The 13 sessions are offered in succession, so participants can attend at any time. Meetings are generally attended by fewer than 10 people, offering an intimate setting in which to discuss the material each week. Participants range in age from mid-20s to elderly, are male and female, and are involved in the ends of marriages that lasted anywhere from a short time to many decades. Some have even attended that have or are contemplating divorce. DivorceCare offers a daily Bible study, which is optional for participants. Session information is offered in the form of workbooks and videos on topics such as healing, anger, depression, loneliness, etc. There is a DC4K (DivorceCare 4 Kids), a program for children ages 5-12 of families experiencing divorce and separation, available upon request. Meetings will be held at 200 Market Street on Monday evenings beginning September 20. For more information, call Heidi Ketzko through the church office at (814) 723-4930.
