SGM Coming Events…
ONGOING ~ We will have weekly SGM workdays at the SGM building to work on packaging and shipping Dreams of You items to families all over the world, paperwork, praying for families and for SGM, and whatever other tasks are on the to-do list. Currently, we are meeting Friday afternoons from 1:00pm-2:30pm. We could really use your help, if you’re local. Work is always more pleasant and the burden less heavy with helping hands working together! Check our SGM Facebook page for reminders.
Comfort Bears ~ The first Saturday of each month, beginning at 9am, Sufficient Grace Ministries Office – 300 Chestnut St.; Deshler, Ohio, we gather to work on Comfort Bears. We will also take some time to pray for the families receiving the Dreams of You packages. We need more groups to form in other areas to make our bears, as the sweet ladies who are currently supplying us with the bears our sewing their fingers to the bone to keep up with the growing number of mothers writing to us. There are currently families on our waiting list and more writing each day, with requests from all over the world. If you are local, we’d love your help. You can cut or stuff…if you are unable to sew. Or pray. There’s something for everyone. We just need willing hearts. It’s always a fun time of fellowship as we work together on this very special outreach. And, if you’re not local, please consider forming a group to help make Comfort Bears. We can get you the info. if you are interested.
Workdays at SGM
Workdays canceled for the November and December. Resuming in January. Thank you to the gentlemen of Alpha Sigma Phi at BGSU for helping us to stuff 85 bears, and for the hardwork of the SGM cutters and seamstresses!
Walking With You Support ~ For those walking the path of grieving the loss of a baby or child, we offer grace for the journey and a friend to walk with you…
Monday, December 2, 2013 ~ Walking With You Bereavement Support Group Meets at the SGM office at 7pm. Join us for a very special SGM Remembering Together at Christmas. We will be adding ornaments in memory of babies on our special SGM tree. If you cannot attend in person, you may still donate $5 to help support SGM and add an ornament in memory of your baby to our tree. (Add $2 if you would like the ornament shipped to you after Christmas). Details on our Facebook Event Page and the SGM blog.
For our non-local friends, we have added a Closed Facebook Group where parents and family members can gather for Walking With You support. Only those in the group can see what is posted. It is meant to be a safe haven for grieving hearts. You can ask to join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/272912556187491/
