What we're about

Please join us at our Bethel, CT campus for DivorceCare, a 13-week course that covers many topics including finances, parenting and new relationships. We give you scripture-based guidance on how to deal with loneliness, anger and other emotions that are commonly experienced during divorce.

Not a member? No worries! More than half of our community are not members of Walnut Hill. All are welcome. New members are welcome to join us at any time.

We welcome those who have been divorced for years and still haven't healed emotionally from their divorce to those who are at the beginning stages of their divorce proceedings.

Please note that this is not a dating group.

Join Lynn & Leigh Sunday mornings from 9 am to 10:45 in room D-6 beginning March 17.

Session 6: What does the owner's manual say?

156 Walnut Hill Rd

In Session 6 we see "What does the owner's manual say?" We learn that marriage is a sacred covenant. It is a solemn agreement, and unlike a contract it can not be broken. Marriage, a union whereby two people become one flesh, is symbolic of Christ's relationship with His church. We learn there are biblical grounds for divorce such as immorality (Matthew 5:32 and 19:9) and departure of a non-Christian spouse (1 Corinthians 7:15). We are encouraged to use the following tools when deciding whether to divorce: prayer, study the bible, follow God's lead (God will not contradict His word), and get wise counsel. Please join us in the guest room, which is immediately to your left when you come in the main entrance.

Session 7: New Relationships

156 Walnut Hill Rd

In Session 7, we cover the topic of "New Relationships". We learn that dating prematurely detracts, distracts and detours us from healing. During the divorce process, we do not have the emotional stability or energy to make wise decisions regarding dating. We run the risk of trying to force fit someone into our lives and make compromises to try and fill our emotional needs. Healing takes time, and we run the risk of back sliding if we enter into relationships before we heal. It is important to be prayerful during this time, and press into God through prayer and His word. We learn the importance of being content with our singleness, and finding our identity and wholeness in our identity with God. Taking time to learn from past mistakes will allow us to grow and allow God to "fix the lens" with which we view others to avoid choosing others with similar qualities. Please join us in the guest room, which is immediately to your left when you come in the main entrance.

Session 8: Financial Survival

156 Walnut Hill Rd

This week we review Session 8 "Financial Survival". The video stresses the importance of avoiding the use of credit cards, avoiding spending as a way to self medicate, creating and sticking to a budget, reducing legal expenses by seeking mediation, talk to creditors to see if they will work with you to pay down your debt, make your needs known to others, and praying to God. God sustains us and provides for us. We need to distinguish our needs versus our wants, and see budgeting as a means of freeing us from worry rather than a constraint. Please join us in the guest room, which is immediately to your left when you come in the main entrance.

Session 9: Kidcare

156 Walnut Hill Rd

As parents we worry about the impact of divorce on our kids. This week we learn how to have a stable home, how to respond to your kids, how to reduce conflict and how to speak about your ex. Please join us in the guest room, which is immediately to your left when you come in the main entrance.
