DivorceCare Ministry at First Methodist Church


Beginning September 12, 2024


6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


(Includes Workbook)

Scholarships Available

DivorceCare helps churches restore broken lives. There aren’t many people
around who understand the pain of their separation or divorce. I hope that by
continuing DivorceCare at First
Methodist Church, we will become known where divorced or separated families can get help immediately. I hope our church becomes a place where these families can come for support and guidance over several

months to work through issues that surround them.

DivorceCare is a 13-week Christ-centered program featuring nationally recognized
experts on divorce and recovery topics from a Christian perspective through DVDs and a participant notebook.


Some of the sessions include:

“Facing My Anger”

“Facing My Loneliness”


 “New Relationships”



“Financial Survival”

During these sessions, you will meet others facing some of the same issues,
who understand what you’re feeling and will be able to offer encouragement.


These group discussions can bring about much healing. They can help you deal with the pain of the past and look forward to rebuilding your life and future.

Our DivorceCare Ministry is ongoing and designed as a weekly format to run on a
continuous cycle, which means a person can join anytime.


Hopefully, this ministry will become a place where families can gain knowledge and share their feelings with a small group of others who are also experiencing the pain of separation and divorce. As they become more active in this ministry and develop trust, we at First Methodist Church will have an opportunity to introduce them to other aspects of church life and opportunities for spiritual growth.

During the last meeting, I asked for comments about the program. Some of the comments I received from our most recent session:


“I enjoyed and benefited from hearing feelings and emotions others experienced.” “I loved the program and am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be here for it!”


“DivorceCare helped me learn about myself and what I need to improve.”


“It has helped me realize I’m not alone in this.”

As a person who has gone through a divorce, I continue to have a strong passion for
this ministry and to be able to help others who are separated and divorced find the Lord’s comfort and healing through the DivorceCare ministry.

Our  DivorceCare ministry is on  Thursday evenings from 6:00-8:00 pm at First Methodist Church, 200 Market Street.

For more information on the current meeting schedule or any questions concerning this program, please get in touch with Heidi Ketzko through the church office at 814-723-4930.
