“…He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners ..." (Isaiah 61:1b)
We as a church body believe that we have the responsibility and the privilege to minister to many of those who are hurting. Our support groups and ministries include the following:
Are you struggling in your marriage,
even considering separation or divorce?
Are you separated from your spouse?
You don’t have to go through it alone
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.
DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. First Baptist Church is honored to be a place where you can find Christ-centered support for this special need.
Each DivorceCare 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.
Classes meet each Sunday at1:00 pm at
FirstBaptist Church of Ocala, in Fellowship Center 105/107
(check the church bulletin each week for meeting changes)
