A new uncoupling group will be offered to the community on Thursdays at 7:30pm- 9:00pm for a four week span starting May 11th through June 1st at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Ridgewood, NJ. Topics of discussion will include The Emotional Process of Uncoupling on May 11th; Why We Get into Relationships on May 18th; When and How to Part From Relationships on May 25th; and Healing and Redefining on June 1st. The purpose of the group is to create a supportive environment to affirm and provide assistance in establishing one’s self again as an individual outside of the couple unit. Individuals of all ages who have experienced an uncoupling, such as the ending of a relationship, a separation, or a divorce are invited to attend and come as you are. Whether one is reinventing one’s self or adjusting to the idea of being without spouse or partner, the group welcomes you. Please RSVP to the Church office at 201-444-7300 or on the Facebook event link at https://www.facebook.com/EmmanuelRidgewood/ or call Rev. Kenneth Gill at 941-725-0872.
Rev. Dr. Kenneth Gill, Senior Minister at Emmanuel, will lead the Uncoupling group. Rev. Dr. Gill holds a Master of Divinity from Anderson School of Theology, a Doctor of Ministry from San Francisco Theological Seminary, and has over 20 years of experience in family systems therapy and marriage and family counseling. He has extensive experience in the formation and facilitation of similar support groups.
