Enrollment under way for spring DivorceCare

Enrollment in the spring DivorceCare program at the Christian Resource Center is under way.

The group meets at 7 p.m. Mondays at 300 N. Kanawha St. across from Raleigh County Public Library. The 13-week session is open to those who have experienced or are currently experiencing separation or divorce.

DivorceCare consists of a set of video lessons presented by experts on various topics familiar to those who are going through the circumstances surrounding divorce. Some of the topics include depression, loneliness, finances, children, anger and dating.

A workbook is available for purchase for $17, which will be used to follow the videos and that includes an “On Your Own” section for participants to complete between sessions. The 13-week group is open and participants are welcome to begin at any session.

The local facilitators also offer Choosing Wisely: Before You Divorce to couples who may be considering divorce. The five video sessions are viewed and discussed with individual couples seeking more information about divorce and future difficulties as a result of divorce.

Couples are asked to contact facilitators Craig and Linda Spooner for more information concerning DivorceCare or the Before You Divorce program.

For more information go to It is a faith-based, nondenominational group. For more information or to register for the group call 304-763-3424.
