Parkway Bible Chapel Hosts DivorceCare Support Group Beginning In January

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

DivorceCare will kick off with an open house on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 6 p.m. in the Chickamauga Room at the Hampton Inn on 6875 Battlefield Parkway in Ringgold. Trained facilitators, people who themselves have experienced the pain of separation and divorce, will be available to answer questions.  

Organizers said, "DivorceCare is a support group setting, where you will discover that you are not alone in this painful event of life. The pain, fear and emotions you are experiencing now are normal for people who find themselves going through separation and/or divorce. Are you feeling anger, loneliness, betrayal, and fear? These are only a sample of the topics which are addressed in DivorceCare. You will receive help in avoiding common mistakes one often makes in this life changing event.  You will also uncover sources for comfort and healing."  

The 13-week series (from Jan. 13 - April 14, 2013...excluding Easter on March 31) includes a 30-minute video providing help and advice from divorce recovery experts and testimonials from former DivorceCare participants.  After each video, attendees will have the opportunity to join a small discussion group to share (if they desire) and learn from what others are experiencing.  Each group is set in a safe and confidential environment.

"Make a decision today to get on the road to help and healing with people who know and understand what you are experiencing.....go ahead, take that step and register online today at www.parkwaybiblechapel.org."
