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 Dare to be Different 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.
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.
Our next session of Mending the Soul will begin in February of 2018.
This group is for anyone who has lost someone close to them. This is a professional 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 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 Thursdays at 6:30pm in Room 107. The next session will begin on January 25th.
