God’s desire for us is to have a lifelong, faithful marriage. It is the church’s responsibility to be on the forefront of premarital, marital, and post-marital counseling in order to create and preserve strong marriages. However, sometimes even with thoughtful consideration and counseling, divorce is a painful alternative. It isn’t easy and divorce hurts everyone involved.
No matter the circumstances behind a divorce, we grieve over the devastating emotional, spiritual, and economic consequences of the loss of relationship.
Although divorce publicly declares that a marriage no longer exists, other relationships resulting from the marriage remain, such as the nurture and support of children, family, and, of course, the church. You will continue to be loved, supported, and cared for by this church family before, during, and after a divorce.
God does not love you any less after a divorce and neither do we. That’s the beauty of God’s grace.
We encourage an intentional commitment of the Church and society to minister compassionately to those in the process of divorce, as well as members of divorced and remarried families, in a community of faith where God’s grace is shared by all.
Our pastors are always available for counseling and support. You do not have to go through this alone. Please reach out to Rev. Doug Meyer at firstname.lastname@example.org to start the conversation.
