DivorceCare for Kids
Divorce support group for children (DC4K)
DivorceCare for Kids is a special group to help children heal from the hurt caused by the separation or divorce of their parents. At our weekly DC4K group, kids make friends with other kids who understand how they feel and the things they are going through because of the divorce of their parents.
Best of all, children will learn how God’s love can strengthen them and help turn tears into hope and joy!
Our DC4K group meets weekly in 13-week cycles. We combine games, crafts, activities, music and DVD dramas to create a fun atmosphere where children feel comfortable and accepted. They look forward to each time their DC4K “family” gets together.
Ages: DC4K is designed for children ages 5-12.
Family Support: DivorceCare for Kids is structured to replicate a large family environment. Children from the same family are kept together because they often look to each other for security during the divorce experience.
Parent Involvement: Parents are encouraged to be involved with their children as the children go through DC4K. Each parent will receive a weekly “Parent Page” describing what the child has learned and offering tips to strengthen the parent/child relationship, creating stronger bonds in the single parent family.
DivorceCare Connectivity: DC4K follows the same schedule and age-appropriate themes as the adult DivorceCare program, allowing parents and children to progress through the healing process together and providing a springboard for meaningful discussions.
Content: DC4K is nondenominational and features biblical teaching to help children recover from the hurt of separation and divorce.
DC4K meets Thursday evenings at 7:00pm.
