Special programs offered
Union City Second Baptist Church, located at 831 Everett Blvd. in Union City, will offer DC4K (DivorceCare for Kids) beginning Feb. 10 from 3:30-4:45 p.m. Children hurting because of divorce are welcome at this special place for those from 5-12 years old who are in need of help and healing. At the weekly sessions, children make friends with others who understand what it feels like when parents divorce.
The group combines games, crafts, activities, music and DVD drama to create a fun atmosphere where children feel comfortable and accepted. At DC4K, children find joy and hope built on God’s love, said Pam (Avery) Murphy, who leads the 13-week sessions. Mrs. Murphy is a child development specialist and educational consultant for area school systems.
DivorceCare for Adults will meet Wednesday nights from 6-7:15 in room F-102, following the Wednesday night meal at 5. Dinner reservations are required for the meal.
At DivorceCare, adults become part of a small support group whose members are also experiencing separation and divorce. Topics will include: “What’s Happening to Me?” “The Road to Healing,” “Facing Your Depression and Loneliness,” “Fin-ancial Survival,” “New Relationships,” “Forgive-ness,” “Moving on and Growing Closer to God” and “Taking Care of Your Kids.”
Workbooks for each of the programs are $12.
To register for either or both programs, call the church at 885-5223.
Testimony service set
Manna Ministries will sponsor a special testimony service Sunday at 6 p.m. at Joe’s Steakhouse, located at 3762 Ken-Tenn Highway near Union City. Food will not be served. The meeting will be in the banquet room at the facility and will feature a speaker from Anchor House, the half-way home for men who have completed treatment for drug and alcohol abuse and are working toward finding their place in the community as productive citizens.
A love offering will be accepted at the service, a spokesman said.
