Trinity Baptist Church, located at 1506 Santa Fe in Sweetwater, will host a special DivorceCare class called "Surviving the Holidays." Classes will be held Tuesday, Dec. 6 and Tuesday., Dec. 13, both from 6-7:30 p.m. The class is free to anyone wishing to attend. For more information, call the church office at 325-235-2991.
DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help people face challenges of separation and divorce and move toward rebuilding their lives. Each DivorceCare session has two distinct elements:
â€˘ A seminar with experts: During the first 30â€“40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.
â€˘ A support group with focus: After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that weekâ€™s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.
The special session of DivorceCare is an uplifting outreach tool that thoroughly equips churches to:
â€˘ Present a single, two-hour seminar (just like a typical DivorceCare session) that gives practical advice on dealing with divorce and separation during the holidays.
â€˘ Comfort people in the community who are hurting during the holidays.
â€˘ Clearly present the gospel to the separated and divorced in the community.
â€˘ Grow the current DivorceCare ministry.
