Relationships can be very difficult sometimes. If you are ending a committed relationship Rebuilding at Bethel offers a safe place to share your thoughts and feelings as well as find information, guidance, support and friendship. Through the Rebuilding process you will also discover a new awareness of your own personal growth potential. This non-denominational series offers three different approaches to the recovery process.
Welcome to Rebuilding at Bethel, formerly known as the Separated and Divorced Group. This group originated in 1985 through the work of Pastor Donald “Jake” Jacobson as a supportive place for anyone experiencing grief or loss from a committed relationship breakup. The program has served a number of individuals from all walks of life for the past 30 years. It is open to all persons regardless of race, heritage, religion, non-religious preference, age, or sexual orientation. Rebuilding at Bethel is a non-denominational three part program that grew out of the original support group. Rebuilding at Bethel offers three different approaches to serve individuals in the difficult recovery process from a relationship breakup. All groups/classes meet Tuesday nights at 6:30pm. They are as follows:
There have been many grateful graduates of the various Rebuilding at Bethel programs who are looking to give back. Several volunteer their time on a regular basis. Some send wonderful thank you cards. Others are able to give financially which allows others to attend the Rebuilding course that would otherwise be unable to based on strained finances.
If you are interested in “paying it forward” or giving financially, you can give securely online here.
