“DivorceCare”
Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.
DivorceCare will meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each sesssion has two distinct elements:
A Seminar with Experts
During the first 30-40 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.
A Support Group with Focus
After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.
Materials: Work Book (approx. $15)

Too Busy No to Pray helps Christians all over the world slow down to draw near to God. The world certainly hasn’t slowed down. If anything, the pace, intensity and number of distractions have only increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well, poverty and broken families. The urgent need for prayer is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray. Two truths haven’t changed: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he’s always been; and true prayer — prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God’s work in the world — can’t happen on the fly. Bill Hybels offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to prayer. Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority.
