DC4K is a special group to help children heal from the pain caused by a separation or divorce. DC4K provides children with a safe and neutral place to recognize and learn to share their feelings.
For 13 weeks children become involved in a fun, caring group at our church. The weekly session topics help our children learn that God’s love strengthens them and helps them turn their sadness to hope and their angers to joy.
Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities. Games, crafts, role playing, discussion times, journaling and workbooks help children process the divorce and move forward with their lives. The music CDs, snacks, read aloud stories, exercises and Bible verses teach 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 difficulties and have found help and encouragement.
DC4K is a powerful ministry for kids 5-12 years of age.
DC4K will be held on Monday evenings from 7 – 9 PM in Room 204. Please check the church bulletin for session dates. All are welcome – stop by the office for more details or call 215-969-1520.
There is a one-time registration fee of $20 per child and includes the DC4K workbook. Download the Registration Form.
