A Door County support group is offering those who are going through or have been through a divorce the opportunity to come together and help each other through the pain they are experiencing. DivorceCare is organized by Bay View Lutheran and Tanum Forest Lutheran Churches and uses professionally made videos as discussion guides to cover topics such as anger, depression, finances and more. The support group is used in over 15,000 churches worldwide and was brought to Door County last year as residents had to travel to Green Bay to attend such meetings. The program will meet weekly for 13 weeks and members can join or leave at any point. Tanum Forest Lutheran Church Pastor Peter Mannoja says DivorceCare does great job of making members feel like they are not alone.
Bay View Lutheran Church Parish Nurse Lou Ann Brown adds the program is open to all ages, even if their divorce happened years ago.
DivorceCare will begin meeting on September 12th at Tanum Forest Lutheran Church and run through December 5th with another 13 week session taking place in the spring. There is a $20 registration fee but sponsors are available if you are unable to cover the cost. To find out more information on DivorceCare you can visit divorcecare.org.
