Do your children need DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K)?
Your kids may feel scared, sad, and confused after your divorce. They know you have been hurt deeply. As a result, they may hide their feelings because they are worried about your happiness or because they do not know how to express their feelings appropriately. DC4K helps them process those feelings and gives them tools to communicate better with you.
What is DC4K?
DC4K provides your children with a safe and neutral place to gain an age-appropriate understanding of separation and divorce. They will learn how to process and share their feelings.
For 13 weeks, your children become involved in a fun, caring group that meets near you. The weekly session topics help your children learn that God’s love strengthens them and helps them turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.
Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities. Games, crafts, role playing, discussion times, journaling, and activity books help your children process the divorce and move forward in their lives. The music, snacks, read-aloud stories, exercises, and Bible verses teach your children to relax and rest secure in God’s love. The Kids Like Me and Stories from the Bible video dramas present stories of children just like your children, who are experiencing divorce-related problems and have found help and encouragement.
DC4K is designed for kids 5–12 years of age. If your child is 5 they must be in Kindergarten already to participate. Children look forward to each time their “DC4K family” gets together. Start your children on the road to healing today and connect them with their very own DC4K family!
Who are the DC4K leaders?
The leadership team for Bethel's DivorceCare for Kids consists of people who share a genuine concern about the way divorce is affecting your children now and in the future. The DC4K team encourages children, builds relationships, and presents skills to maneuver through the rough places of divorce, while pointing students to Jesus as their healer.
DC4K leaders have an excitement for the DC4K program and have participated in leadership training. If you are interested in learning more about volunteering and serving as a leader in this ministry please click below.
