marriage mentoring

Our goal at DSCC is to help strengthen marriages and families to make them the best they can be. The Marriage Mentoring Ministry is designed to do just this. Whether you are facing challenges in your relationship or would just like some enrichment, our trained mentors can help you by walking you through our 10-week program. Designed by Matt Loehr, the Love & Respect curriculum is a logical, step-by-step process that clearly identifies the issues that may be causing problems for you and your spouse. The feedback from this ministry has been very positive, and we look forward to coming alongside you as well. 

ANCHORED

Anchored is a group for believers who find themselves struggling with their mental health.

This could bea struggle with anxiety, worry, OCD, panic attacks, depression, etc.

This is a peer support group focused on faith, community, and skill-building.

We believe that we need each other and God to properly heal and have hope in this struggle.

Only with God and others can we have the proper perspective to cope with each new day and

the worries it may bring.

 

Note: It is important to note that this specific group is not for caregivers or loved ones of those who have mental health struggles or mental illness.

We do believe that caregivers and loved ones deserve and need their own kind of support, but this specific group is for those who directly struggle with mental health and wellness.

MENDING THE SOUL

At DSCC, Mending the Soul (MTS) support groups are small groups for women who wish to receive support and help with recovery from their experiences of sexual, physical, verbal (emotional), spiritual abuse and abuse from neglect. The group works through the Mending the Soul Workbook which is a complement to the book Mending the Soul: Understanding and Healing Abuse by Steven Tracy. In the group the nature and effects of abuse are discussed but the group also provides a Christ-centered, biblically based model for support towards healing and recovery from abuse.

griefshare

This group is for anyone who has lost someone close to them. This is a professionally produced curriculum which is used by over 5,000 churches world wide. You will learn how to cope with your loss from a practical Christian viewpoint. You will find comfort from one-another and from God.  GriefShare deals with questions such as:

  • Why?

  • Why now?

  • Why am I feeling this way?

  • Will I ever get over this?

  • What now?

  • What about Heaven?

We will begin each session with a video followed by a discussion facilitated by someone who has been through the fog of grief that you are going through. Perry Harris and Carol Melton facilitate the group.

GriefShare meets on Thursdays at 6:30pm in the Spring and Fall

(beginning in January & September) for 13 weeks. Everyone is welcome to join.

Divorce Care

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. You don't  have to go through it alone!

DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:

A Seminar with Experts
During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.

A Support Group with Focus
After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

DivorceCare meets on Sunday afternoons at 1pm at Desert Springs and is led by Bill & Billie LeCompte'. 

 

This year we also have added DivorceCare 4 Kids! Talk to our leaders if you are interested in that option.
