Divorce Care

Welcome to LCGS’ Divorce Support Group!

At the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, we understand that going through a divorce can be an overwhelming and challenging experience. We believe that during such times, it is crucial to have a supportive community that provides comfort, guidance, and understanding. That’s why we are excited to introduce our Divorce Support Group, where you can find the support you need on your journey to healing and restoration.

Our Divorce Support Group is designed to provide a safe and compassionate space for individuals who have experienced or are currently going through divorce. We believe that everyone deserves a chance to heal and rebuild their lives after the pain of separation, and our group offers a supportive community to help you through this process.

By partnering with DivorceCare (https://www.divorcecare.org), a trusted and widely recognized organization specializing in divorce recovery, we ensure that our support group follows a proven and effective curriculum. DivorceCare provides resources, materials, and a comprehensive program that addresses the emotional, practical, and spiritual aspects of divorce recovery.

During our support group sessions, you will have the opportunity to connect with others who are facing similar challenges, share your experiences, and gain insights from a biblical perspective. Our caring and experienced facilitators will guide discussions and provide valuable resources to help you navigate the difficulties associated with divorce.

LCGS’ Divorce Support Group offers:

  1. Weekly Meetings: We meet twice a year for thirteen in a safe and confidential environment where you can share your thoughts, feelings, and concerns with others who understand what you’re going through.
  2. Relevant Topics: DivorceCare’s curriculum covers a range of essential topics, including grief and loss, anger, forgiveness, financial survival, and rebuilding your life. Through these sessions, you will gain valuable insights and practical tools to help you heal and move forward.
  3. Supportive Community: We believe that healing happens within a community of understanding and caring individuals. Our group provides a supportive network where you can find encouragement, empathy, and lifelong connections with people who have experienced divorce firsthand.
  4. Spiritual Guidance: Our support group integrates faith-based principles to offer you hope and strength during this challenging time. We explore how God’s love and grace can bring healing and restoration to your life.
  5. Resources and Materials: As part of your participation in the Divorce Support Group, you will receive access to DivorceCare’s extensive library of resources, including workbooks, videos, and articles that complement the topics discussed during our meetings.

Whether you are recently divorced, in the midst of separation, or even several years removed from your divorce, you are welcome to join our Divorce Support Group at any stage of your journey. We believe that healing and growth are possible, and we are committed to walking alongside you as you rebuild your life.
