Help for 'Surviving the Holidays'
Depending on the statistics you read, half or more of Americans are divorced. Lawyers are quick to help take care of the initial 'fire' but the aftermath can sometimes be overwhelming...especially this time of year. Enter the DivorceCare program that is offered throughout U.S. communities. Locally, DivorceCare is lead every Thursday at New Life Assembly of God.
DivorceCare groups are a place where you don't need to have it all together and you'll meet people who know the place you're currently in. It's tough enough getting through the process, but if you're struggling during the holiday season it can be overwhelming.
If this is you or you know someone in this position, DivorceCare is offering a special session titled, 'Surviving the Holidays' on Thursday, December 13 from 6:30-8:30pm at New Life Assembly of God at the corner of N. Wright Road and Hwy. 14 (the fireworks church).
The session will include a short video featuring reflections of those who have effectively made it through this season while dealing with heartache and loss. Afterwards, there will be a discussion to share or listen...whatever you feel comfortable with. Finally, you'll receive daily devotions to help you find strength, encouragement and helpful ideas to help you 'Survive the Holidays'.
This special event is free of charge and refreshments will be provided. Don't go through the holiday season thinking you're alone. If you're struggling you have a safe place in DivorceCare. If you have questions, feel free to call the church office at 608-756-4175.
