I need Support

RESTORE & REBUILD (RR)

 

RR is a ministry which supports & cares for those who are in separation or divorce. It uses the DivorceCare material over 13 sessions from April to November on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 2:30pm to 5:30pm with a vacation break in the month of June. Topics in this support group include Road to Recovery, Anger, Grief and Depression, Single Living, Financial & Legal issues etc 

If you know of someone who has just been through or who is still in the midst of separation or divorce, do ask them to consider participating in the RR support group. Non-Bartley members and non-believers are welcome.

We also run the RR4K for kids 5-12 years old to help them walk through the divorce or separation of their parents. Both adult & kids DivorceCare contents are strategically coordinated to help single parents and their children find hope and healing. RR and RR4K run concurrently on the same day and time at Bartley Christian Church.
