Recently divorced 24 year old looking for wisdom

Greetings! I'm not sure where to start, so if this comes off as not as put together as it should be, here's the warning! As the title suggests, I've been offically divorced since October 12th. We had been separated since April 2016. We were married 2.5 years. I just don't know what to do from here. I got a new job, new apartment. I work all the time. I work nights, mostly seven days a week. I haven't been to church in about 3 months and that was a "Oh I woke up randomly, I guess I'll go to church." Work is starting to slow down and we won't be working Sunday nights anymore and we'll be getting off Saturday night earlier than usual so now I can go to church. I want to go to church. I really do, it's just awkward. As a couple, we weren't really that involved with it since we had just started to attend November 2015. I had a small study thing with the pastor and another guy, they knew everything about what was going on, but they really couldn't help me with the day to day stuff since they had never gotten divorced. My ex and I attended a small group with 5 or 6 other couples a few times but eventually that came to an end because we had too many excuses for Friday nights. I'm still a part of that group on facebook but I work nights now so I have to miss those groups. I'm not sure if they know we are divorced yet or not.

Do I just jump right back in church and pretend nothing happened? It's a fairly small church, the pastor won't mind for sure! He was excited to see me the last time I went. "Look! You woke up! Haha!"

I'm just awkward about it I guess. I haven't really talked to anybody about it. I feel ashamed and guilty, though I wasn't the one who pursued the divorce, I didn't stop it. Please pray for me.
