What is the time and location?
We meet on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at Poinciana Christian Church.
Address: 3181 Pleasant Hill Rd, Kissimmee, FL 34746. If this is your first time you can arrive at 5:30 pm to register..
To get the most of the program, we would like to encourage you to attend the 13 weeks.
What is the program trying to accomplish?
The goal of DivorceCare is to provide a Christ-centered, biblically-based foundation for healing from the devastation of separation and divorce, while providing ongoing support in a ‘safe’ environment during this time of healing. It's an opportunity to slow down, take a deep breath, and realize that you are not the only person going through this pain. You are not alone! We liken it to an Emergency Room. Help is needed right away and DivorceCare provides that help.
How many people usually attend?
Attendance varies. Typically we have 1-4 groups with 6-8 people in each group. Each facilitator has experienced divorce personally and found healing through attending DivorceCare. They are passionate about helping you start your healing.
Can my spouse and I attend the same meetings?
No. We firmly believe that each of you will benefit greatly from the DivorceCare ministry, but ask that you attend in different locations. To find a listing of churches currently hosting the ministry, please visit www.divorcecare.org/findagroup. Place your zip code in the ‘Find a Group’ tab and a list of groups will be available by church name, location and time frames.
Is this program only for those recently divorced or separated?
No, not at all. Whether you have been separated one day, or divorced for over 20+ years, this is the place for you. Time is only one of the components of healing, not the healer itself. DivorceCare offers resources and tools to navigate your journey wherever you are in the process.
What if I'm a returning participant and have my own workbook?
You will not have to pay the registration fee again, but you will need to register with us again.
I'm currently seeing someone. Is this a problem?
We strongly encourage and ask you not to date while you are in DivorceCare. This is your opportunity to focus on you and on your healing. The healing process will only be hampered if you are in a relationship, or simply "seeing someone." You will have many years to date, should you choose. Give yourself time to heal. You won’t regret it.
How can I know that everything I say will be held in confidence?
We adhere to a covenant that you sign when you register. Discussion of what takes place in your group is to be held in the strictest of confidence.
