The Divorce Recovery Workshop at First Baptist Church
strives to provide a safe place for all people who are suffering from the loss of
a relationship through separation, divorce, or breakup. We work very hard to make
sure that everyone who attends the workshop will feel comfortable and accepted regardless
of their faith, back ground, education, socio-economic status, age, gender or role
in their relationship loss. We approach our ministry with a Christian Heart and
call to serve but we do not evangelize.
The philosophy of the workshop is to allow each person
to move along their spiritual and recovery journey at their own pace. We believe
that, accepting each individual has their own unique and valid journey, and acknowledging
that their truth is not necessarily everyone’s truth, works well to keep our
small groups and the workshop “safe” for all participants.
Divorce recovery focuses on helping participants
to heal from their emotional wounds, not on “how to get divorced.” Rather
than offering advice, we offer care and a gentle loving acceptance. Rather than
experts, we are servants, guides and fellow travelers on the journey. Our goal is
to provide a safe place where our participants can find community, care, acceptance,
and love. A safe place in which to begin their journey towards healing and discovering
their own "Future with Hope."
