Single Parents

Parenting Solo New Beginnings Start Here

Parenting Solo is a ministry for moms and dads who are parenting alone. Whether divorced, widowed, or never married, you will find people within the ministry who understand what it is like to be a single parent.
Join the Parenting Solo Bible & Life Group on Saturday nights at 7:30 PM upstairs in the Discipleship Center. Each week the study stands on its own, so if you have to miss a week you are not out.
At our Single Parent Family Ministry, we work hard to find out the needs of single parent families and then help meet those needs in such a way that the single parent family would be strengthened and drawn closer to Christ. As a single parent, it is difficult to handle childcare, finances, car care, home repair and, wow, when can you have time for fun?
Come join the single parents of First Baptist Church Naples in an exciting outreach ministry. We have activities, Bible studies, and family group studies which are made especially for single parents. Get to know other single parents who share your dreams and concerns. We look forward to getting to know you and your children.

National organization for Single Parent Ministry: 

DivorceCare for Kids
DivorceCare for Kids is a special group to help children heal from 
the hurt caused by the separation or divorce of their parents. At their weekly DC4K group
, kids make friends 
with other kids who understand how they feel and the things they are going through because of the divorce of their parents.     
Best of all, children will learn how God's love can strengthen them and help turn tears to hope and joy!     

DC4K Design
The DC4K group meets weekly in 13-week cycles (DivorceCare for adults also meets in a 13 week cycle). We combine games, crafts, activities, music, and DVD dramas to create a fun atmosphere where children feel comfortable and accepted. They look forward to each time their DC4K “family” gets together.

Divorce Care
There are not many people around you who understand the pain your divorce or separation has caused. To you. Your family. Your friends.
That’s the reason for Divorce Care. It’s a series of support groups and seminars conducted by people who understand what you are experiencing. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to deal with the pain of the past and look forward to rebuilding your life. Divorce Care is nondenominational and features biblical teaching for emotional healing and recovery from divorce and separation.  There are two parts to each weekly Divorce Care session. At first, the group watches a videotape featuring top experts on divorce and recovery topics. These tapes contain valuable information about recovering from divorce and are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format.
Following the video, the participants spend time in two or more small “support groups,” discussing what was presented on that week’s videotape and what is going on in the lives of the group participants.

Step out in faith and call for information today. The class meets every Saturday night at 7:15 PM in Room DC209 in the Discipleship Center at our 3000 Orange Blossom Drive Campus.
Cost is just $10 for your workbook and you can join at any time.
