SGM Coming Events…
***May 6, 2013 (9am-5pm) ~ ATTENTION all amateur, semi-professional, and professional photographers! SGM will be hosting a training for anyone interested in volunteering as a birth and bereavement photographer to serve with SGM’s Perinatal Hospice and Bereavement Support division. This training, offered by Erin Foster, is REQUIRED for all who wish to volunteer their photography services with SGM. Please invite any photographers who are interested in teaming with us to help grieving parents. Training is all day. Lunch will be provided.
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.
