The DC4K kit contains everything you need to launch a DC4K group at your church.
Here’s what each kit contains:
A fun-filled Activity Book designed just for children features activities to motivate the children to learn in interesting ways about divorce, feelings, families, loneliness, and much more. As the children utilize the Activity Book throughout the 13-week program, God’s Word will continually fill their minds and hearts and bring comfort to them. Each child in DC4K will need an Activity Book.
Extensive Leader’s Guide
The Leader’s Guide is filled with step-by-step leader success tools, training and promotional materials, checklists, helpful hints, downloadable resource lists, and guidance on running your DC4K ministry. Download sample Leader’s Guide pages.
The Lesson Plans book includes detailed leader instructions, an outline and agenda for each session, and weekly preparation lists for all 13 sessions. The Lesson Plans include detailed descriptions of games, activities, crafts, and devotions, plus direction on where to incorporate the songs, DVD dramas, Activity Book pages, and each piece of the kit.

Attractive, professionally designed publicity brochures. Shipped flat in packages of 100 with a space to insert information about your DC4K group.
Colorful posters sized “just right” for display on bulletin boards in your church or community and great for inserting in your church bulletin. Shipped 100 posters per package (two per 8.5 x 11" page), each poster includes a space for publicizing the specifics of your DC4K group.
Included in the materials are two CDs with 30 songs written or arranged for the children in your group. One CD highlights the emotions and issues children of divorce face. The second CD presents children singing Scriptures and helps bring participants closer to God.
Listen to sample music from Kids Like Me — divorce issue songs and Kids Singing Bible Songs — Scripture songs.
Stories for Kids in Divorce is a read aloud storybook created to promote hope in every child who is struggling with the divorce of his or her parents.

Videos on DVD
DivorceCare for Kids features 25 original video dramas on three DVDs, with two separate video dramatizations each week. Children connect with the character actors in the real-life drama in the Kids Like Me videos. During the Stories from the Bible videos, Uncle Bill helps his niece, nephew, and their friends understand what the Bible has to teach them about their lives.
Watch episodes of Kids Like Me and Stories from the Bible.
The Alphabet Stretches & Weekly Scriptures flip chart bring the Bible alive as the children read, act out, and connect with God’s Word.
Handheld mascot puppet
Herby, a handheld puppet, has six interchangeable pillow “feeling” faces. Herby is great to use to introduce various lesson concepts and emotions. Herby personalizes various Activity Book pages, and Herby’s musical rap welcomes the children each week.
Herby’s Feelings Poster
The Herby’s Feelings large wall poster helps children identify and communicate their feelings and emotions.
Included in the DC4K kit is a Leader Training Video, designed to give you an overview of what it takes to run a successful DC4K ministry. It’s an essential tool for training all DC4K volunteers at your church.
