Most of us never expect to experience separation or divorce and the accompanying pain, anger and grief. But many find themselves in this spot and wonder how to heal. Although you may feel alone, the Bible says the Lord is with you and He will never leave you nor forsake you. As well, our DivorceCare group is here for you too. 

Come and hear valuable Biblical, practical information on how to begin healing, all within in a safe and confidential small-group setting. Topics include forgiveness, depression, finances, children, reconciliation, anger, and others. 

Childcare is available upon request. 

Classes are open to our congregants as well as to anyone outside our church. Learn about the national DivorceCare ministry here.


Grief support group: Good Grief

Meeting dates:  First Wednesdays of the month at 2:30 p.m.

Grief knows no boundaries and has no time limits. If grief has touched your life, please know that you're not alone, and that together in Christ, we can find comfort and rediscover hope after loss. ⁣

Our deaconess-led support group offers encouragement and strength to those who are mourning the death of a loved one. Following the book Good Grief, authored by Granger Westberg, St. Paul's group explores how grief is complex and deeply personal, and that there is no single "right" way to grieve.⁣ 

For questions, contact Gayle Truesdell, St. Paul’s member and Deaconess, at 636-579-0769 or via email. Please register online or call the church office.
