August 9th - September 13th, 2017

Offered twice a year at FUMC, the Divorce Recovery Group is for anyone who has experienced a divorce. 

The group will provide persons a safe, supportive community in which to express and explore the many reactions that come in the aftermath of divorce. Persons can share their experiences, struggles, concerns, sorrows, fears, anger, joy, hopes, and dreams to the level of their own comfort. Meetings will be in a relaxed informal setting. There is no cost for participation, however, there is a $20 material fee. Scholarships are available if needed. The materials, “Rebuilding: When the Relationship Ends” and “Rebuilding Workbook: When the Relationship Ends” by Bruce Fisher and Robert Alberti, will be available at the first session.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Ellen Hitchcock leads the group. She received her MSW from the University of Alabama. She works with adults of all ages, including couples, and has had extensive training and practice in conflict resolution, family mediation, and cross-cultural study. She is a Certified Personal Life Coach and Spiritual Mentor. She facilitates workshops and retreats throughout the southeast and is author of Nature’s Magical Moments: Reflections on Nature and Self.

For more information, call the church or email Rev. Jenny Caughman at jcaughman@fumcor.org. The group is sponsored by FUMC's Adult Ministry.
