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.

Walking With You ~ 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 at the SGM office at 7pm. Meetings are the first Monday of every month.
