DivorceCare Ministry is a 13 week course offering support, counsel and encouragement to people who have been through the pain of divorce or are seperated from their spouse.   You are welcome to begin attending our DivorceCare group at any point.  Each session is "self-contained", so you do not need to attend in sequence.  For more information, to correspond with a pastor or to register - please reply to:  divorcecare@soudertonmennonite.org.
