Separation and divorce can be one of life’s most painful, stressful experiences; a time of deep confusion, shame, and isolation.

DivorceCare is a ministry provided by Church Initiative in Wake Forest NC. They have been producing the video series since 1993. The videos and discussion are aimed at using grace, truth, and time to help in your healing and enhance spiritual maturity in your heart. Church Initiative principles provide the curriculum for this support group at CBC. Our vision at CBC is that “By using sound biblical principles, we create a warm, caring, and trusting group atmosphere where healing can occur and lives can be changed.”

For additional information click here.

DivorceCare is an open group that meets during a 13-week semester. Each class uses videos and workbooks. Videos are presented at each class and are usually 40 minutes in length so you can follow along with your required workbook which provides space for your note-taking.

At the beginning of each semester, the members of each group sign a copy of the “Covenant” to reflect their responsibility and accountability to each other. Visitors are never allowed.

To join DivorceCare, please go to CommunityBible.com/, click on “groups”, then click on the “Care & Support” tab, now type “DivorceCare” in the “Search for…” box. Scroll down and click on the group you would like to join and complete the registration form.

The Landing is Celebrate Recovery’s student ministry. This curriculum is designed to mirror the same material as the adult Celebrate Recovery (CR) curriculum, only designed for students.

The Landing provides a safe place for students to process life and the struggles that accompany it, provides tools to help them live emotionally and spiritually healthy lives, and points them toward the freedom found in Jesus Christ.

A typical night in the Landing will consist of a student’s connection with the leaders, God, Biblical truths, recovery principles, and fellowship with each other. Ultimately, The Landing can help students learn how to break cycles of dysfunction and provide tools for them to live free and healthy lives.

CR for students is geared towards Jr. High and High School age students, 12-18 years of age.

To register click here.  Parental consent is required.

CR and The Landing are always open to newcomers and meet on Fridays at 6:30 PM.
