Workshops, Speakers, and Retreats

Rebuilding after Divorce 
Join us for a 6-week program focused on rebuilding after the ending of a marriage or long-term relationship. We will walk together through a group process designed to help understand the often painful grief and recovery process that follows a divorce. The group will focus on understanding and analyzing the past but will also discuss next steps and how to plan and prepare for a new future.  Expect to leave with a new understanding of your past relationships, and also with a new hope and perspective on your future.
Led by: Rebecca Hall and Chad McCall
Dates: Sundays from 3-5 p.m., September 9 – October 14
