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 Thursday or Friday afternoons from 1:00pm-3:00pm. 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.
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…
Walking With You Bereavement Support Group meets the first Monday of each month:
NO WWY meeting October 6, 2014 due to our Evening of Remembrance
November 3, 2014
December 1, 2014 (Special Christmas memorial gathering with refreshments and ornament making)
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/WWYBereavementSupport/
We are in need of SGM Remembrance Photographers and SGM/SBD Birth and Bereavement Doulas in NW Ohio, SW Ohio, St. Louis Missouri, Michigan, and parts of Kentucky (near Lexington, I believe). You can find out more about volunteering for these positions here: SGM/SBD birth and bereavement doula and SGM Remembrance Photographer

Many of you know that October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month. On Saturday, October 11, from 5:30-9pm, Sufficient Grace Ministries is partnering with Parkview Hospital and the First Church of God located at 561 Carter Rd in Defiance, Ohio to provide an evening of remembrance and hope for families who have walked through the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. We will also welcome anyone who has lost a child at any age.
Please join us for a dinner, inspirational speakers, music, a special candlelighting/name reading ceremony, and opportunities to honor your baby and share your story with supportive listeners. This beautiful memorial event is being offered at NO CHARGE to you. ♥ Please register by October 1, 2014 so we can plan for meals, candles, giveaways, and mementos.
If you cannot come in person, but would like us to remember your little one, we will still light a candle for your baby. Please fill out the form with your information below.
